Characteristics of a Good Real Estate App
Today, technology has made it easy to buy and sell. Businesses have experienced tremendous growth as a result of investing in technology. Among the sectors of the businesses that has heavily benefited with the advancement of technology is real estate sector. We have app developers who have invented apps that are used for buying and selling houses. Home buyers can install the app on their mobile phones or other gadgets and look for homes to buy. Also, the home sellers can also post pictures of whatever house is up for sale. How does a good real estate app look like, and what value does it add to both the home buyer and seller.
The real estate app should be easy to use. It should allow the app users to see pictures of all the houses for sale. Once a buyer finds an appropriate home he or she is interested in, contacting the seller should be easy. A good app should allow the seller to post all the commission and discounts details.
Searching for the available houses should also be easy. A good app allows the user to filter the search results using desired keywords such as price, location, etc. Once the search results are available, it should also save the results for easier access in case the app user want to refer to the open listings of the previous search again. Listed houses should also include key features such the number of rooms, bathrooms, balcony, size of each room, etc. The information is vital to every home seller.
Uploading images for the houses on sale should be easy, with a limit on the size of each image. Big-sized images take up more time to open, and therefore delay the opening of the app pages.
The app should work with common operating systems and devices. Mobile phones are the preferred gadgets where the prospective home buyer or a buyer will install the app. Downloading and installation of the update to ensure it remains up-to-date should also be easy. Real estate app should be free to download and install.
For home sellers and buyers, choose a real estate app that has a user friendly interface as it will attract many prospective buyers as well as sellers. You will want to log in to an app, have a look at a number of houses that are been offered for sale, contact the seller and book an appointment to see the house. Brokers will also want an app where they can refer or sell a house on behalf of the homeowner and get their commission without encountering too many difficulties with the app. If the broker has been paid the commission and the buyer decides not to proceed with the sale, the app should state the refund, mostly a 50% commission refund.
