Summary: Primedia's rental resources are getting stronger now that it is buying from eBay.

eBay is selling off one of its properties as the online retailer continues to focus on and build out its mobile commerce platform.

Primedia, a renter resource for apartment and rental home information and listings, is buying (appropriately enough)

eBay originally purchsed in 2005 after the site was founded in 2000. operates as you might expect based on the very simple name of the service. It's a pay-for-performance internet listing site that helps site visitors search rental properties online using its free search tool. Prospective renters can search the site's property listings, which specify contact information, pricing, photos, floor plans, and virtual tours.
