San Mateo County Launches Free Housing Locator Service
The free service, www.SMCHousingSearch.org, represents the next generation in Web 2.0 tools. The service provides renters, landlords, housing professionals and anyone with access to a computer, tablet or smart phone access to real-time information about rental housing ranging from subsidized to market rate.
The service is provided by the San Mateo County Housing Authority and the Housing Leadership Council of San Mateo County, with contributions from a variety of community agencies and local business sponsors.
Special features include a listing of quick links to housing resources as well as rent-affordability and moving-cost calculators. Users can also apply filters to hone in on housing for seniors or apartments near transit, for example.
