This makes accurately defining neighborhood boundaries a difficult task and a project best left to local apartment experts.
Irving, TX (PRWEB) September 28, 2009
The nation's largest Apartment Rental Agency, UMoveFree.com, recently announced the addition of neighborhood-based apartment search tools and content throughout their website and online community. This new content will allow Texas renters to search using neighborhood specific criteria to locate apartment listings within the Austin, San Antonio, Houston, or Dallas / Fort Worth neighborhood of their choice.
Data suggests that many renters prefer searching for apartments within a designated neighborhood as opposed to more traditional search options that include merely a city name or zip code. ALN Systems Inc, a leading multi-family data aggregation and analysis company, concludes more than 50% of the searches performed through their database are neighborhood specific.
"A renter rarely calls their real estate agent looking for an apartment in Dallas," said Wayne Williams, President of ALN. "Dallas renters are looking for a specific neighborhood within the broader Dallas area…they typically know a specific part of town they want to live in and they refer to that neighborhood by a locally known name."
UMoveFree is currently one of the only websites that allows renters to search within a designated Texas neighborhood. Nick Barber, President and CEO of UMoveFree, explains that developing a neighborhood apartment search tool (http://www.umovefree.com/Sitemap/neighborhood-apartments-dallas-fort-worth-tx/) is much harder than it sounds.
"Neighborhood boundaries are not set by the government or the state. These are area names that the local community has coined over time," said Barber. "This makes accurately defining neighborhood boundaries a difficult task and a project best left to local apartment experts."
As the largest employer of apartment locating agents in the state, UMoveFree is well equipped to handle such a project.
When asked how they developed the neighborhood apartment search Barber explained, "We employ a network of specialists with expertise in every neighborhood throughout the state. We spent months aggregating that expertise and making it available to renters on our website."
The final product is an innovative addition to the Umovefree.com website that allows renters to search updated apartment listings within their desired neighborhood.
