Find Comparable Rents With Rentometer


I got an email this weekend about a great little tool that I wanted to share with everyone. Rentometer

Just enter a property address, number of units in the building, and the current monthly rent, and Rentometer will show you where your price stands compared to others in the area. In addition, this Google mashup also shows comparable properties in the area on everyone’s favorite, Google maps.

This is a great tool for any landlord to have in their arsenal.

  1. This looks like a really awesome website… but… i have one complaint. Why can’t the creators of these sites enable Canadian addresses?

    I’d love something like this so I could compare rents in my area and make sure my rental properties are competetively priced! Please, please open this up to Canada in the near future…


  2. Hey, that was fun! It came up with several examples in the areas I checked out. Maybe I’ll start using that to help analyze different parts of the city. Quick and easy, but I did notice it may not be completely accurate.

  3. Thanks Joshua. You rock!
    We have many more free tools planned for release soon at both the rentometer and iiProperty. We will definitely open the rentometer up in Canada. We are listening ; ) thanks to everyone for the input…positive or otherwise -we really appreciate it.

    Congratulations on your wedding! Married life is bliss!

  4. Great Post,

    I wonder if there is any way to use this tool to predict future rents or to get info about how the rates are changing in the neighborhood. It would be useful to know what the rates are compared to recent months.
