RentSlicer.com, the wildly popular web resource for Los Angeles county rental property statistics, launches integrated Google Maps functionality.
RentSlicer.com takes its rental search and analysis portal to the next level by integrating the visual contextual elements of Google Maps with it’s famed rental property search database.
The new viewing interface, “mash-up”, allows the user to list the properties on the map (complete with rental summary), then link to the details for each listing.
August Kleimo, RentSlicer.com’s creator, says “I’m very excited about the new mash-up functionality. With just the click of a mouse, users can get a visual of average home prices or specific rental listings in an area. Since mash-ups happen in real time, users can get up-to-the-minute information.”
Real-estate developers, landlords, and renters alike can reap the benefits of RentSlicer.com.
The detailed graph analysis is helpful to developers in determining rental trends in specific areas, and landlords can see their competition to determine the exact worth of their rentals.
Renters can utilize the slicer tool to choose listings with specific criteria (such as 2-bedroom apartments with fireplaces and garages in Burbank) and then see a map with all of the listings graphically represented.
Site users are encouraged to submit ‘Alert Requests’ to receive email when a property matching their criteria is listed. “Alerts provide an invaluable edge in today’s competitive rental market”, explains Kleimo. “An alert sent to your Blackberry or Treo could make the difference between securing the place of your dreams, or being the second or third applicant in the queue.”
Due to popular demand, RentSlicer.com will soon be adding San Francisco and the Bay Area to its service and plans to cover all major metropolitan areas across the United States in the near future.
