What Makes a Great Apartment Search?

Think back to the last time you moved.  You might have thought, “I want a better commute and I want to live near the people and places I love.”

Whether you’re a so-called millennial (born after 1980) who likes using your smartphone more than driving a car — or whether you’re an aging baby boomer who wants to drive less — more and more people are looking for what we call “walkability.”

Our goal is to help people find walkable places to live.  So we were thrilled to find out Walk Score was named one of the 5 best apartment search tools by Lifehacker and our newly updated iPhone app was named one of 4 essential iPhone apps by Wired Magazine.

Here are some tips and tricks to find your Walker’s Paradise:

Compare Commutes

Favorite any address on Walk Score to compare commute times to the places you travel frequently.
