MyNewPlace is one of the largest apartment listing websites in the United States. The site lists apartments and homes for rent along with city information pages, rental living resources and multiple ways for users to view properties and neighborhood information they’re interested in. MyNewPlace is headquartered in San Francisco in the SoMa neighborhood, but is owned by RealPage based out of Carrollton,Texas.
MyNewPlace is known in the apartment industry for its intuitive design features, including flexible apartment search and integrated maps. MyNewPlace was also the first apartment rental website to incorporate social networking features like Facebook Connect and Post to Twitter. In July 2009, MyNewPlace launched a MyNewPlace iPhone app, incorporating GPS-based apartment search and the ability to take notes and photos on listings.
For general information consumers can also view city profiles offering information on average rent, transit time, average age and other demographic data. Rental Living tips and tricks are regularly published on the MyNewPlace blog titled LocalTalk.
