MyApartmentMap Launches Apartment Search Engine

A Single Source for Apartment Listings, Maps, Rental Data, and Deals

BOSTON, Nov. 3, 2010 -- The apartment search engine MyApartmentMap (www.myapartmentmap.com) officially launched today. For the first time, apartment listings have been seamlessly integrated with interactive maps, virtual neighborhood tours, detailed rental data, and many other advanced tools that help apartment searchers make educated decisions about where to rent.

A 60 second video walk-through launched to let users see the functionality of the site. MyApartmentMap was originally created in 2006 as a simple mashup to help its creator find an apartment in Boston, Massachusetts. After several years of research, development, and design, MyApartmentMap has launched the most comprehensive and feature rich apartment search available.

A short list of MyApartmentMap's features include:  

Interactive Maps : Users can view a map to see exactly where each apartment is located. Nearby grocery stores, restaurants, schools, and other points of interest can be seen with the click of a button.  

Virtual Neighborhood Tours : Interactive street images give renters the ability to get the look and feel of a neighborhood without ever leaving their computer.  

Rental Deals : Advanced algorithms detect which apartment listings currently offer deals and incentives. Commonly found deals include cash back rewards, free rent, or unit upgrades. -

Vertical Searches : College students, military families, and pet owners, all have additional requirements when searching for housing. Vertical searches help these renters by automatically identifying apartments that fit their criteria.

MyApartmentMap provides detailed rental data for over 70,000 locations including states, cities, colleges, neighborhoods, military bases, and zip codes. This allows users to accurately predict how much they should be paying for rent and what regions fit within their budget. With

MyApartmentMap, renters can educate themselves and find the right apartment in a way that previously could only be achieved by visiting several different websites. The unification of this process will save renters their valuable time and money.
