New Mobile Application Available for Download from Leading Real Estate Web Site
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 8 — Today RealEstate.com announces its mobile application, RealEstate.com Mobile, is now available to more than 50 million AT&T and Sprint mobile phone subscribers by visiting http://www.realestate.com/mobile . By visiting the Web site, consumers and real estate agents can easily download RealEstate.com Mobile to their phones and begin searching homes for sale, from anywhere in the United States.
In September, RealEstate.com announced a partnership with Smarter Agent(R) to power a channel of its mobile application called Homes for Sale. Today’s news expands on RealEstate.com’s mobile presence providing direct access to RealEstate.com Mobile from the RealEstate.com Web site. From a users’ phone, RealEstate.com Mobile provides access to more than two million real estate listings from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), RealtyTrac(R) and iNest(R), along with photos, maps, and comprehensive details of each for sale property.
"Whether a serious house hunter or a casual shopper, RealEstate.com Mobile provides users with quick and easy access to the same amount of great information that they can find on the RealEstate.com Web site," says Greg Hanson, vice president of product excellence with RealEstate.com. "This new application not only provides users with real estate information they want, when they want it, but it also saves them time and money because they no longer need to drive around looking for homes for sale. With a few quick clicks on their mobile phone, a user can launch a home search from their living room, while sitting in traffic, or during their next house hunt."
To get started with RealEstate.com Mobile, users enter a zip code, or city and state and then launch their search. They can also start their search with more detailed information such as price range, number of bedrooms, and number of bathrooms. When the for sale listings appear, the user can then dive into the details of the exterior and interior of each home, view the properties on a map, or save their search to "favorites" to check out later. Search results include single family homes, multi-family homes, land, townhouses, or condos. In addition, RealEstate.com Mobile provides users direct access to real estate professionals ready to help. When they are ready to see homes for sale, learn about a neighborhood, or negotiate a deal, users can call an agent with one click.
