- (1888PressRelease) June 09, 2011 - Pittsburgh, PA - CompareYourRent.com (http://www.compareyourrent.com/) has officially launched its services to the United States as the premiere website to compare rent, find neighborhood rental rates, and to provide rental pricing for owners. Using rental information supplied by search engine technology specifically geared for apartments, CompareYourRent.com compiles rental rates based on size, quality, and location, and summarizes the rates for users. The site compares the user submitted rental rates against those of neighboring units, offers helpful ranges of what users can expect to pay in rent for the area, and shows the percentages of neighbors pay more or less in rent.
CompareYourRent.com went live in early June and is expected to soon grow in wide circulation amongst apartment hunters, managers, and owners. The site's easy to use design allows users to compare their rent against those around them, price out new apartments, and even see examples of current available apartments in the area. Users can expect to find current information regarding neighborhood and citywide trends, as well as share these trends with friends and family. Apartment hunters will also enjoy the ability to see if they are overpaying for rent, as well as if they have found the most affordable deal. CompareYourRent.com encourages renters to be wary of their rental situations, and be empowered in the moving process. "Given that more and more Americans are renting, we wanted to make a free site to help the average apartment hunter learn what should be paid in rent," said CEO Jon Pastor. "It's a great tool, and we are excited to see how we can change the way people think about renting."
CompareYourRent.com additionally gives accurate data about local rental rates to apartment owners, making it easier to correctly price and manage rental rates, as well as fill vacant units. As traffic increases to the website, Compare Your Rent plans to market the tool to apartment and rental housing websites, as well as to search engines and apartment associations.
CompareYourRent.com (http://www.compareyourrent.com/) was founded in June of 2011 by CEO Jon Pastor as the premiere website for rental comparisons. The site works as an immersive tool which allows users to see detailed information and comparative pricing on apartments in their neighborhood.

The data is accumulated from search through over 12,000 sites online, aggregating the millions of listings into data sets, and finally parsing through key information such as price, size, and location CompareYourRent.com uses this data to offer a consistently updated comparison tool for use by renters and owners.
