We are proud to announce that MapThatPad now interfaces with New York based real estate listing website, UrbanEdge. In fact, as you see in the image above, UrbanEdge listings have an image right on the website which allows you to save it! So you have three ways to save an UrbanEdge listing into MapThatPad: click on the icon on the listing as shown above, copy-past the listing URL, or use the MapThatPad bookmarklet.
Just like us, our friends at UrbanEdge are committed to making the apartment hunting process easier. First of all, apartment hunters want real listings of real apartments with real addresses and that is exactly what they provide. Also, let's face it, broker aren't for everyone - they can be pushy, misleading, and ask for a fee. UrbanEdge works directly with the owners and property managers of the apartments listed on their site. This means that their database is real and kept up to date. You don't have to click through multiple listings for the same apartment posted by different brokers or owners as on other sites. Simply put: no brokers; no re-posts; no fees; no bs. They also have a great Renter's Guide section that helps newbies navigate through some treacherous real estate terminology and a Neighborhood Guide that helps New-Yorkers and New-New-Yorkers learn what's what with different neighborhoods. So, overall they're a great resource for your NYC apartment hunt - make sure you give them a try on your next one! We sure are fans.
