Rentberry Could Change the Future of Home Leasing

Tenant problems plague landlords every day. Are you tired of broken appliances, frustrated neighbors, and your tenants being late with their payments again? Are you ready to pay the agent more and reduce the rent to find "really good" tenants?

The answer is "No." There is a better decision.

If you register on Rentberry online service, you'll be able to communicate with prospective tenants while shopping for groceries, waiting for one's dentist or nail specialist, or being stuck in a traffic jam. You won't have to lose time by filling out paper rental applications or calling/emailing tenants to schedule property visits - this will also be done online. And there is no need to pay the agent!

You will set a preferred rent on Rentberry's website and then prospective tenants will bid, eBay style, trying to get a good deal. Yes, we know, some tenants do slide through the screening process, but Rentberry knows how to solve this problem. It analyzes a lot of public information about bidders and does their background checks. It means that landlords know a lot about their prospective tenants before actually meeting them.

But landlords, beware! Rentberry also allows tenants to give scores to landlords. It means that tenants will be able to choose not only a good property, but a good landlord as well.

Winning bidders would sign the rental agreement through Rentberry. Rent will be paid online and Rentberry's platform will help tenants and their landlords stay connected with each other.

But there is one thing to keep in mind. All payments on the platform will be executed in BERRY tokens. Landlords will be able to collect rent in BERRY tokens seamlessly and securely and use them for other services on the platform.

For instance, they will be able to pay with BERRY tokens for property promotion and marketing; invest in rental security deposits of quality tenants; hire third-party service providers, such as house cleaners, handymen, plumbers, and electricians.

The sale of BERRY tokens starts on December 5th and ends on February 28th. Rentberry will offer BERRY Tokens to investors at an exchange rate of 1 ETH = 2,500 BERRY. The minimum purchase amount is 250 BERRY (0.1 ETH).

For "early birds" there will be a bonus:
-33% from December 5th through December 19th
-27% from December 20th through December 26th
-20% from December 27th through January 16th
-13% from January 17th through January 26th
-7% from January 31st through February 13th

The company will accept ETH and BTC.

There will also be bonuses for big purchases, but they will be discussed individually with potential buyers.

The proceeds from the sale of BERRY tokens will be allocated to IT development (30%), to marketing and sales (20%), to acquisitions and partnerships (15%), to international expansion (12.5%), to administrative and operational activity (10%), to a development fund (5%), to legal expenses (5%) and to Bug Bounty program (2.5%).
