Rent Jungle is now number two for apartment search site results on Google!

Rent Jungle is now the number two search result for "apartment search sites" on Google.  We have continued to move up on the search engine results thanks to everyone's support.  We really appreciate it, please keep linking to us!

Basement living got you excited? Knowing your market could land you the perfect apartment!

If you are anything like the 11.9% of Americans nationally relocating this year, you will undoubtedly find that moving can be a daunting task for even the most seasoned travelers. Especially when moving to a new city in a new state. This can seem even more difficult if this new city is unfamiliar to you and if your contacts there are limited.

But that’s ok. You’ve got that new job lined up and you’re probably going to Craigslist your way through a few months of living in cramped, sublet-apartments or overpriced basement studios with low ventilation. I mean, only until you find your new place, right?

Well you should know that taking this route can waste a lot of time, energy, and money. Moving can be a positive experience if you are prepared for what lies ahead. So before you hesitantly hand over your hard earned cash over for a new lease, I recommend you take a quick inventory of your available resources so that you may learn how much you should be paying for rent.

Most people are usually surprised to know they have many more tools at their disposal than they are aware of. Take for instance a tool which allows you to find the city’s rent averages. This would let you know what to expect in the current market so that you wouldn’t have to worry about overpaying for your new apartment. Let’s say that with this tool you could even compare the rent prices against your current city, or even compare prices between different neighborhoods. You would be able to gauge where you want to live based off of proximity to your office or amenities, as well as by the rent average of any particular neighborhood.

Rent Jungle’s Market Trends can do just that for you. Instead of walking into a situation that leaves you with a less than opportune abode, you can find the perfect apartment with reasonable rent that is right for you. See how much you should expect for rent, and even compare neighborhood trends to make sure it’s the neighborhood for you. Rent Jungle’s Market Trends gives you the knowledge you need to move into a new city with confidence. You don’t have to deal with being swindled and disappointed: you can make this move knowing the facts and having a positive experience.

So go ahead, give it a try. It’s free, easy to use, and can save you a lot of heartache.
