A new apartment rental search site for Toronto shows great promise with some cool features, and an extra level of searching capability, that if not completely necessary, is at least very interesting.
NomadTO, currently in beta, allows you to search for rentals by specific Toronto neighbourhoods. You can map search, or select your chosen ‘hood form a list of checkboxes. You can superimpose the subway system over the map, and specifically indicate how close you wish to be to a subway stop.
Although sign-up, login, and the ability to email listings are all glaringly absent (it is in beta, after all, forgiveness granted), the site looks goods, with this added fun bonus: You can search and select your neighbourhoods based on how people voted in the last two Toronto municipal elections. You can search for listings by your favourite mayoral candidate, or as you look at each property, a small list is shown with the percentage vote for the top three candidates.
So, if price, location AND how your neighbours vote, are important to you, NomadTO is the site to find your next apartment. Even if you’re not looking for an apartment, it’s still fun to see how each ward voted throughout the city.
