CORT Business Services, a Berkshire Hathaway company, unveiled a completely redesigned ApartmentSearch.com. The improved site, which is free to all users, includes a bevy of new features and tools to make finding a home easy and stress free.
The new ApartmentSearch.com includes the following site enhancements:
The site has been redesigned for an improved layout and navigation.
Commute Time Calculator
Users can check their commute time to work whether by car, public transportation, bicycle or on foot.
Self-guided Property Tours
Users can pick the properties they want to visit and receive an optimized route to check out all of the locations on their list with just the click of a button.
Integrated Neighborhood Information
Users can get to know a potential neighborhood before visiting and determine the best fit for their lifestyle needs. Neighborhood information available on the site includes nearby schools, restaurants, grocery stores, parks and walkability.
“A great deal of effort has gone into the development of this site,” said Scott Papenfus, national product and partnership development manager for CORT. “We are excited to reveal our new look and provide our community a better overall apartment search experience with no subscription fee. In the coming months, we will continue to add new features that will help make the apartment search experience even more easy and efficient for users.”
The site’s goal is to bring together renters and property managers. Property managers only pay a fee when a lease is signed and renters receive a $200 award for signing a lease.
