PadMapper: Easy Way To Search Craigslist For Rental Property

Ads by Google

PadMapper is a Google maps mashup that makes it easy to search and browse Craigslist rental property listings. Instead of using maps as a helper extension to view listings, it uses maps as the primary browser for apartments. You can view available apartments all over US, zoom in to view listings in a particular state/city or a neighborhood. The closer you zoom in, the more results you will see.

You can zoom in down to a street level and view the restaurants, bars and shops in the surrounding area using the Street View feature. It also lets you instantly filter apartments based on criteria such as max/min rent, # of bedrooms, max price per bedroom, pictures etc. Pretty cool.

If you found an apartment that interests you, add it to Favorites and view the list later. However, if you want to keep the saved entries beyond your browser session, provide an email and when you close your browser you will be sent the results to your email address.
