Letter grades are no longer just for restaurants, as tech start-up Rentlogic is now slapping letter grades of its own on the dwellings you call home.
Rentlogic’s service hopes to make sure you can get that info too. The program provides A through F letter grades for residential buildings in NYC based on eight years’ worth of open source data from government agencies. The data includes past issues that may have afflicted the property such as mold, legal actions against the landlord and rodents.
The browser extension will let you access the data while browsing real estate listings online. An A through F letter grade for the building will pop up in a box and works in conjunction with more than 200 different rental listing sites, including the popular ones like Zillow and Truila.
The software works as a browser extension, so you’ll have to download it ontoFirefox with just two clicks and peruse the web with a little more knowledge at your fingertips.
