Finding a new apartment in Los Angeles is a bit of a crapshoot these days. It’s hard enough just to find a possible new home within your price range with the bare necessities in a very competitive rental market, without even taking into consideration things like neighborhood safety, tenant satisfaction and median rental pricing. Apartment Ratings is trying to provide a one-stop destination dealing with these very issues. Overall, the site has many useful features, with ratings for parking, maintenance, construction, noise, grounds quality, safety and management with current tenant feedback (with some very honest opinions). But when we searched neighborhoods we were interested in living at, we found that pickings were slim for metropolitan Los Angeles. Unfortunately this is a case of a chicken or the egg, as the site depends upon reader input to provide content and right now the listings seem limited to larger complexes rather than the smaller unit apartments I’d personally be interested in. I guess I’ll do my part this weekend and enter some information about the last two apartments I’ve lived at myself...gotta start somewhere!
