US rental apartments portal mynewplace.com has been working with Walk Score to create its new co-branded Walkable Apartments widget.
The widget, which can be embedded in any blog or website, provides a search by city or zip code. By displaying results with a Walk Score, the widget shows property hunters how close an apartment is to shops, restaurants, schools, and other amenities.
Along with the widget release, walkability ratings have also been added to all mynewplace.com’s listings, and a link to mynewplace.com is now included on Walk Score’s results pages, prompting users to search for a rental apartment.
mynewplace.com joins a growing list of websites taking advantage of Walk Score, including zillow.com in the US and homehound.com.au in Australia.
