If you are thinking about moving but don't know where to start, HotPads might be just for you. The free app uses your current location to find what rental properties are near you, or you can search any area of the country.
HotPads was recently acquired by Zillow, and now has a lot of new, powerful tech built in. The app lets you compare the rental price for a property to see if it is competitively priced. Street View from Google has been added so you can check out the property and neighborhood, and most listings have multiple photos of the interior and exterior.
Other features in HotPads include a rent vs. buy calculator, and a tap-to-call button to put you in touch with the owner of the property or realtor. You can also search for homes within a particular school district, and see what public transportation options are nearby. The app also hides places you have looked at and are uninterested in, which is pretty handy.
