A Website That Will Help You Find The Apartment You Really Want

Affordable housing in Montreal is thankfully pretty easy to come by. It's finding one you actually want that's the problem. The right location, the right size and the right price are the basic determining factors, but there's so much more involved when it comes to apartment hunting that makes all the difference between a happy home and just a place to keep your stuff.

While the internet is full of people flogging what seem like nice places on screen, the reality is almost always a total disappointment, and worse than that, an utter waste of your time.

There's often so much noise to sift through, that by the time you've looked at bad apartment after bad apartment, you end up losing the only decent one you came across to someone else, and are forced to sign a lease for something that doesn't really suit you at all.

There is a better way to get that perfect apartment, though, which makes your search (and life) so much easier and more convenient. Kangalou is a Montreal-based website that filters out all the apartments you really want from the ones you really don't, while also being your own personal assistant.

Save loads of time and energy with numerous advanced search options to choose from, or simply let Kangalou find you a match based on over 100 customizable criteria. Kangalou is so intuitive in fact, it conveniently saves your favourite listings so you can organize them later, make notes, share them on social media, and will even send you alerts when new listings come up.

Need to know how to save money on heating, want some moving-day hacks, or would like to learn more about a particular neighbourhood? Kangalou does that too, with its very own database of easy-to-read and useful articles, all dedicated to apartment living.

Moving day isn't for another couple of months, and while it may not be your top priority right now, getting a head-start will guarantee you land that perfect pad, and Kangalou can help.

As an added incentive, win a whole year's worth of rent ($7,200 in cash) just for signing up! That's a lot of poutine money, just saying.
