, a Web tool that offers rental property statistics, announced today that it has launched a version of its service for the San Francisco Bay Area. The company got its start in the Los Angeles area.


“The Bay Area is one of the most vibrant rental markets in the country,” developer August Kleimo said in a statement. “We are pleased to offer our advanced search and analysis tools to the people of San Francisco.” integrates elements of Google Maps with a rental property search database. The new viewing interface allows users to see properties listed visually on a map, complete with rental summary, and then link to the details for each listing.


The site provides information on neighborhood areas that generally have the most expensive and least expensive rental rates, and provides average rental rates for rental apartments, condos, cottages, guesthouses, lofts, studios, townhouses and homes, among other unit types.


Users can search for properties by price and by number of bedrooms, among other options.


Kleimo said, “I’m very excited about the new ‘mash-up’ functionality. With one click, users can get a visual of average home prices or specific rental listings in an area. Since mash-ups happen in real time, users can get up-to-the-minute information.”


Real estate developers, landlords, income property owners and renters are among the users of, the company announced. Graph analysis tools available at the site are “helpful to developers in determining rental trends in specific areas, and landlords can see their competition to determine the exact worth of their rentals,” the announcement states.


Renters can utilize a “slicer tool” to choose listings with specific criteria (for example: all two-bedroom guesthouses in Menlo Park) and view all of the listings graphically represented on a map. Individual properties can be selected for viewing, the company announced.


Site users can submit “Alert Requests” to receive e-mail when a property matching their criteria is listed. “An alert sent to your Blackberry or Treo could make the difference between securing the place of your dreams, or being the second or third applicant in the queue,” Kleimo said.


The company announced plans to expand into the San Diego and Seattle markets, “with plans to cover all major metropolitan areas across the United States in the near future.”
