Smart Saver Vancouver

Today I would like to introduce a great new online service, called RentGeek. A service that can help you find a place to live in Vancouver. The system is easy, you provide RentGeek with some information about yourself and RentGeek will show you available accommodation possibilities, based on your preferences. If you, for example, like movies, the system will show you neighborhoods where a cinema would be close to your new apartment.

Please read here what they say about themselves.

RentGeek – Home Renting Made Simple
Moving to another city can be overwhelming. Everything becomes new to you such as culture, people, and places.  The first part of the transition is looking for a home. Being unfamiliar with the city can make finding an apartment or home for rent a challenge. Questions such as which neighborhoods are safe, closest to hotspots and the nearest public transit are difficult to know if you’re not from the city.

RentGeek is a personalized rental site that helps answer these questions. You can think of them as a local friend who knows your lifestyle and can safely recommend you areas that would fit your needs. You complete a fun and easy survey that allows RentGeek to understand your profile to recommend appropriate neighborhoods that matches your requirements. Whether it’s determining the commute times, or the areas with the best nightlife, RentGeek computes the analytics to find you the perfect area.

Recognizing that neighborhood information can be overwhelming, they display relevant information while hiding the rest.   The site provides data on demographic statistics, traveling times, local reviews and neighborhood info including safety scores.  All of the data is pulled organically through reliable government sites and sources.  The best part is that the site displays everything in a clean and slick layout. Once you’ve determined your neighborhood, you can continue searching for apartments and homes for rent. The personalized information is continued through the search and RentGeek helps you rate each listing based on your lifestyle needs for an easy comparison.

The company’s goal is to provide the best user-experience and to make renting simple.  Let’s face it, we’ve all been through the frustration of the rental process, and it shouldn’t be this hard.  RentGeek hopes to help individuals coming from around the world a simple way to understand a city without being here and make a smart moving decision.
