New site mixes politics with apartment hunting

Toronto's newest residential listings site has added a political dimension to apartment hunting, one that might appeal to those whose ideological allegiances are particularly important to them. Nomad TO, a recently launched site that's waded into the very competitive market of rental listings, hopes that by allowing users to search by mayoral election results, they'll set themselves apart in the crowd.

"Our belief is that in finding a place to live, your surroundings and neighbours are equally as important as the property itself," co-founder Noah Taylor tells us. If you're a politically junky and already familiar with how each ward voted, you probably won't find this extra layer of information all that useful. But, given that you can search by both the 2014 and 2010 results, the added dimension should, at a minimum prove intriguing when evaluating a given neighbourhood's merits.
