Leading real estate site launches refreshed, improved consumer mobile app
Norfolk, Va. – (October 23, 2014) – Homes.com® has re-launched its Homes, Apartments, and Real Estate search app with version 7.0 for iOS in the iTunes Store and for Android in the Google Play Store. Completely overhauled and featuring new tools and resources, the app utilizes Homes.com mobile technology with advanced features for consumer ease-of-use. Redesigned with a modern look and improved speed and functionality, the new application introduces easier navigation, an innovative commute time feature and more options for sorting and filtering homes. A leader in consumer real estate search solutions and technology, Homes.com continues to prove itself the frontrunner in providing innovative tools and resources for consumers across the country.
“Homes.com is consistently monitoring trends and market conditions to ensure the brands are providing the best possible technology to business partners and consumers alike,” said Dave Mele, president of Homes.com. “The Renter Profile Insights Report shared that more than 50 percent of consumers take close proximity to work and school into account when choosing a location to call home. That said, the state-of-the-art commute time feature will be crucial in helping to get the most out of the search process. Homes.com continues to push the envelope so consumers can take advantage of cutting edge technology in the search for the perfect home.”
Derived from the desire to create more options for sorting and filtering homes and to provide an improved version of the application, the updated Homes.com mobile app is a solid foundation from which to continue building additional tools and features for a continuously improving user search experience. The introduction of the commute time feature tool is only one of the app’s main features. Additional highlights include:
- Commute Time: the distinctive feature automatically computes commute time to work, school, child care, and other important locations. The introduction of the important feature is key for today’s ever-busy on-the-go consumer.
- Infinite Scrolling: Users can continue scrolling in the Grid/List view to continuously keep viewing more results instead of running into dead ends. Users can view thousands of homes without ever clicking a button.
- Map/List View: While browsing millions of homes, consumers can toggle between map view or list view to suit individual preferences, allowing for a more efficient experience.
- At a Glance: Highly intuitive, the Homes.com mobile application 7.0 allows users to see the most relevant information at a glance or tap a listing to read details, see additional photos, and more.
