Posted July 07, 2011

PITTSBURGH, PA – June, 2011—Rent Jungle (www.rentjungle.com) has partnered with industry leading Walk Score (www.walkscore.com) to showcase local business within walking range to any given address, and to help renters engage with their community. Users will enjoy seeing their own Walkability score and gauge it against other addresses, including famous locations and luminaries’ homes. Along with neighborhood information found on the site, apartment hunters are now able to find the most pedestrian friendly apartments available. Users will also be able to find new apartments using the Walk Score rankings alongside Rent Jungle’s apartment search engine to find the perfect home.

Walk Score finds local businesses that are necessary or appreciated by urbanites, collects them on a map view and bases the area’s Walkability score on how many businesses lie within one mile’s walking distance. Rent Jungle has added Walk Score rankings to each listing, making Rent Jungle the one-stop-shop for finding an apartment, scoping out the neighborhood’s businesses, and moving into the perfect home. “We’ve seen that apartment hunters appreciate any information they can get about new neighborhoods,” commented CEO Jon Pastor, “and our partnership with Walk Score working alongside our apartment search engine makes Rent Jungle the best site to find new homes.”

Rent Jungle currently implements the Walk Score data onto each listing to show its walkability ranking on the map and list views. Users can expect to find how easy it is to live in any given area based on the proximity of amenities nearby, allowing for the most informed decision when apartment hunting. Rent Jungle hopes to use the Walk Score data in the future to show distances to amenities, rate their own addresses, and rate addresses of friends and family.
