If you’ve searched for apartments before, you know how frustrating it can be. You do the usual searches on Craigslist, Kijiji, MLS, and ViewIt, and aside from MLS and ViewIt the others aren’t map based which makes it extra fun when going through postings and weeding out the ones that people list as Toronto but are actually not in the city. Hurontario is NOT in Toronto, it’s in Mississauga.
Sadly, until people have grasped the ability to post properly we, the potential renters, need to click the “View Map” link on each potential spot and see where it’s located, until now. In my current search for a new place (aka The Bunker v2.0) I stumbled upon PadMapper.
This useful rental search tool queries Kijiji and CL postings and overlays them on a Google Map with the same useful search options you would find on either of the aforementioned sources, soo effective and soo simple.
So for me it’s back to the grind of finding a new spot, however I hope you found this post to be useful to those of you who may be currently looking for a place and if you did, let me know with a comment or like below!
