Trulia's New Rent Near Transit Feature Helps Renters Easily Find Homes Close to Transit
Renters in Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. can now search for properties near transit stations and view median price by station
SAN FRANCISCO, June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Trulia, a leading online real estate search company, is introducing an innovative new search feature, Rent Near Transit. Trulia is one of the first online real estate companies to combine transit maps and rental listings to create an interactive product.
Rent Near Transit is a search filter that helps consumers find available rentals near rapid transit stations, making it easier for them to get from home to transit, so they can quickly access their points of interest. Renters can use Rent Near Transit to filter for properties located within a 15-minute walk of the transit stations they care about.
"We know that 70 percent of renters want to be close to their job, school, or transit1, and that they are often in a crunch to find a new home fast," said Yardley Ip, general manager of Trulia® Rentals. "By combining rental listings with transit lines, Rent Near Transit filters out listings that are not convenient for a renter, so they can move fast in finding their next perfect home."
Additionally, renters can compare median rental prices by transit station, giving them a better feel for the market at a more local level. Prices are updated regularly to reflect changes in the market as they occur. As a result, Rent Near Transit eliminates the need for renters to toggle between Trulia Rentals and their favorite maps platform to find their next home.
The feature is available on Trulia for desktop and mobile Web, for the Bay Area Rapid Transit, the Boston 'T,' the Chicago 'L,' the New York Subway, the Philadelphia SEPTA, and the Washington, D.C. Metro.
