While the big changes of HLS 3.0 are still coming down the road, we are pleased to announce one change that you may have already noticed. We are proud to announce that we have partnered with Rent Like a Champion and they have taken over the ad real estate in the sidebar that once housed one of our Google ads.
Personally, I am thrilled. Ad revenue to offset the server costs is great, but working with an alumni owned and operated company that I’ve had friends happily use before are huge pluses as well. Further considering that their services are rather useful to our audience, whether they be traveling fans or local South Bend homeowners, it’s a win-win for everyone.
For those unaware of RLAC’s services, 2001 ND graduates, Drew Mitchell and Jordan Curnes, have been providing rental services for the South Bend area since 2006. In that time, they have saved Irish fans from the usual headaches that come with trying to find gameday lodging and they have also made South Bend homeowners over $800,000 in tax-free profits (yes, tax-free). Again, a win-win.
RLAC currently lists over 100 properties in the South Bend area and still have plenty of properties available for even the most popular games of the 2012 at reasonable prices (e.g. housing for six at $775 during Michigan weekend just five miles away from campus). If you are still looking for lodging during a gameday weekend, be sure to check out the properties that are still available.
If you happen to own property in the South Bend area, RLAC has plenty of services for homeowners to make renting simple. With an easy-to-use system, security deposits with mediation services, the ability to set your own price, and no listing fees or annual/monthly memberships (RLAC is completely commissioned-based), RLAC makes it easy to list and manage your property.
So whether you are still looking for gameday housing or thinking about putting up your place for a weekend or two, be sure to stop by RLAC and give some fellow Domers a bit of business.
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
