The Great Pittsburgh Flood...

So we had a little flood here at the office. Everyone's fine, but we think our neighbors nearly lost a car just down the street. 


The front of the office. Parts of the road are about two feet deep.


Daniel took a smoking break next to the ever rising waters. 


About a week later, we received some massive hail from the heavens. 
Geng risked his life on the roof to grab these gems for a quick photo.

Yukon, Ho!

What’s better than having the most apartment and rental housing listings in the U.S.? Having the most listings in both the U.S. and Canada! Last month we spread the range of our search engine to cover Canada as well, meaning that we've expanded our base by a significant margin. Other than just having extra traffic, we are also now an international site!

Our press release revealed our growth in February, but what we are really waiting for are the impressions of the site on an international plane. Sure Americans love the site, but what will our friendly neighbors to the north think about our apartment search engine? If our traffic spike over the last few weeks is any indication, they seem to like it just fine. We also received a write up in the Montreal Gazette, so we know we’ve created a buzz.

So what’s next for Rent Jungle? Rent Jungle Mexico? Rent Jungle Europe? Rent Jungle WORLD? I suppose time will tell. Until then, we’ll just make sure our U.S. and Canadian users get the best experience available online.
