What it Does

Micro Economy looks at the apartment prices for the lat 100 apartments listed on Craigslist and returns a beautifully formatted table:

Average Apartment Data for the SF Bay Area on Jul 19, 2011

+----------------+---------------+--------------------+
| 1              | $1712.41      | 29 listings        |
| 2              | $2315.92      | 36 listings        |
