A Montrealer Made An Interactive Map With All The Apartments You Can Rent On Kijiji

You new go-to tool for apartment-hunting season.

Montrealer Jonathan Rossy has created a new way to see all the apartments on Kijiji are available for rent in Montreal — an interactive digital map he's calling mtl.apartments.

Current listings are displayed in real-time and stretch across a map of the entire city. No matter where you're looking to live in Montreal, you can skip browsing hundreds of Kijiji pages and find your dream home with one convenient resource.

"About a year ago I spent months searching for the perfect apartment [...] Kijiji was my main source of listings, with over 1,000 new posts a day," Rossy told MTL Blog. 

"I knew where I wanted to live but the Kijiji user experience wasn't very helpful at narrowing down the results. So I decided to build a website to solve that problem."

When you click a dot on the map, you'll find the unit's description, photos, listing link, pricing and availability date. Users can also filter the map by price range, number of bedrooms and number of bathrooms for easier viewing.
