Again, we should wait for the GoodRelations integration, because GoodRelations already provides means for specifying the duration of a rental, the billing increment etc. using

gr:billingIncrement 
gr:eligibleTransactionVolume
gr:hasEligibleQuantity
gr:hasUnitOfMeasurement

The support for recurring payments is currently limited to stating the unit (e.g. "per month"), so you cannot state that it has to be paid in bi-weekly installments etc. On the other hand, the question is how granular we really want it.

For instance, renting out an apartment using GoodRelations for 800 USD per month for 6 - 18 months contracts will look as follows (in RDFa):

<div typeof="gr:Offering" about="#offer">
  <div property="gr:name">Apartment for Rent in Soho</div>
  <div property="gr:description">This is the coolest spot to live.</div>
<!-- Business Function -->
  <div rel="gr:hasBusinessFunction" 
     resource="http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1#LeaseOut"></div>
<!-- Contract duration -->
     Contract duration: <div rel="gr:hasEligibleQuantity"> 
       <div typeof="gr:QuantitativeValue">
         <div property="gr:hasMinValue" datatype="xsd:int">6</div> to
         <div property="gr:hasMaxValue" datatype="xsd:int">18</div> 
         <div property="gr:hasUnitOfMeasurement" 
	          datatype="xsd:string" content="MON">months</div> 
       </div>
  </div>
<!-- price per month -->
  <div rel="gr:hasPriceSpecification">
    <div typeof="gr:UnitPriceSpecification">Price: 
     <span property="gr:hasCurrency" content="USD">$</span>
     <span property="gr:hasCurrencyValue" datatype="xsd:float">800</span> per
         <div property="gr:hasUnitOfMeasurement" 
	          datatype="xsd:string" content="MON">month</div> 
       </div>
    </div>
  </div>
  Condition: <div property="gr:condition">remodeled in 2011</div>
  </div>
</div>

All this works off-the-box with the GoodRelations batteries supplied.

Best

Martin
