For some renters, what tips the scales in favor of one apartment over another may not be its fabulous kitchen, but how little one has to use it. Real estate tech company Rentenna has created apartment ratings for most anything a prospective tenant wants to know about a place, including an “Apartment Review Score” that crunches hundreds of data points, an Amenities Score, a School Score, a Value Score, a Transportation Score, a Green Score, and now, a Food Delivery Score.

That’s right. Rentenna grades each apartment rental on its site, using a 5-star scale, on both the number and variety of food delivery options available at the rental’s particular address. The score’s development involved indexing more than 50,000 restaurants across the U.S. that offer delivery.

“More and more Americans are making a deliberate, long-term decision to rent in urban areas rather than gamble their net worth on buying a home deep in the suburbs,” said Rentenna co-founder Alicia Schwartz in a statement.

“As these sophisticated renters compare apartments, factors beyond price are becoming primary drivers of their decision-making: Quality-of-life concerns like building amenities, access to public transportation, proximity to public parks and green spaces, school system quality, and even convenient access to great food are major considerations for renters searching for their next apartment.”

Rentenna has also launched a series of “Food Delivery Heatmaps” that highlight neighborhoods that are food delivery meccas. So far, it’s released heatmaps for ChicagoBoston and Philadelphia. Heatmaps for Washington D.C., Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City are in the offing for November.
