HotPads: Smarter Map-Based Search for Homes, Foreclosures, Rentals, and Hotels

Name: HotPads.com

Quick Pitch: HotPads is a map-based housing search engine. Housing shoppers can find long term rentals, homes for sale, vacation homes, and hotels on our map-based search.

Genius Idea: If you’re in the market for a new home, vacation property, or rental, you can turn to Craigslist, iList, or dozens of other online classifieds sites to help you in your search. But, most of these options aren’t tailored to the best search experience for your housing-related needs. HotPads, however, keeps it simple with interactive map-based search results for everything from apartments to hotels and even recently foreclosed homes.

If you can get past the off-putting name, you’ll find that HotPads provides an enjoyable search experience for housing and hotels. You can quickly search the map, find centers of housing activity, view listing details without leaving the map, and narrow search results by type, price range, or points of interest. With more than 300,000 rentals, 3,000,000 homes for sale, and a myriad of vacation and hotel listings, HotPads has got the entire residential and commercial landscape covered.

Some great features of the site’s map-based approach to housing include the ability to zoom into precise locations for a better view of nearby venues and hot pads, demographic heat map overlays for info on population density and median rent prices, street, arial, or hybrid views, and advanced search options to find detailed info on mortgage terms and down payments.

We’re sold on the site and think it could prove to be a time-saving resource for finding and researching your next big move or out of town stay.

Check out before you go out!!
