Council homes to let are now being advertised on the East Renfrewshire Council website and on social media.
The move online aims to make it easier for tenants to see what’s available and get full contact details.
A council spokeswoman commented: “It’s already been a success with some being snapped up after tenants spotted them on the web, Facebook and Twitter.”
Councillor Danny Devlin, convener for housing, added: “This is a great addition to what housing services are doing online.
“One potential tenant considering a sheltered housing home saw it on Facebook and contact with the allocations team has increased as a result.
“We’re doing everything we can to meet customers’ needs and this online approach is another way to do that.”
