Looking to move? A new apartment search site called LiveLovely.com could jump-start the process for you. To view listings, simply click on the city you want to view or punch it into the search bar. You can search this way or set filters, including price, number of bedrooms, deleted listings and apartments without an address.
Lovely seems to integrate Google Maps better than other sites we’ve seen that show apartment listings this way, like Rent Hackr or Pad Mapper. Whereas these sites display all their listings at once, making the whole thing hard to read, Lovely sorts its listings by neighbourhood and only displays a few at a time.
There is one weakness to Lovely, however, and that’s coverage. Lovely offers listings in several big cities like Los Angeles and Boston, but if you want to find an apartment somewhere else, even New York City, Lovely doesn’t have listings there yet.
On the flipside, you can check out the newly revamped PadMapper, which announced today that it’s bringing Craigslist listings back.
“Apartment hunting is an activity which, unless you enjoy it or it teaches you something, adds no value to the world and should be over as quickly as humanly possible so that you can get back to doing other, more productive things,” said its developer, Eric.
We can’t argue with that.
