HowLoud Looks To Tell You How Loud Your New Apartment Or House Will Be

Are you thinking about moving across town to that new apartment, or buying a new house in a neighborhood? A new, Los Angeles startup HowLoud, says it is developing a service which will figure that out--ahead of time--while you are looking for properties. HowLoud said last week that it is tapping into the database of business information from Los Angeles-based Factual, as well as other data like airport locations, to help come up with a "Soundscore" to indicate how loud an area is. The new startup is initially providing its scores in Los Angeles or Orange County. HowLoad is led by Brendan Farrell.
