So you're G U I L T Y.
Guilty of staying awake way too late and searching for homes on your phone or tablet. It's okay, the first step is acknowledgement. If this is Y O U, which app do you prefer? Redfin and Zillow have an enormous amount of information, and yes, they will have the same inventory because afterall, those are the houses for sale. Other than design elements and personal preference, is there a reason to switch? Should you use more than one?
Y E S !
A new app has been born, and it looks almost exactly like what real estate agents use themselves. In fact, this wonder-app is made by and with the same information within the MLS (multiple listing service) that realtors pay hundreds of dollars a year to use. HD photos of the homes, property history, and unique features such as searching within a specific school district make this app a smooth interface. For realtors, it offers additional information such as a quick CMA (comparative market analysis). This app is specifically geared for BUYERS. You can create a profile that links directly to your agent so that when you like properties, your trusted agent can see. This helps her (or him) notice trends of your tastes so she may better assist in the hunt. You can also connect profiles with friends and family members so that they may share in your home search as well. It's kind of like Facebook meets House Hunters on HGTV.
Though arguably, all of the home apps are somewhat similar and all will show information about the properties with a buyer-centric interface, what makes this app unique is the social aspect of sharing, favoriting and messaging about the homes. Serious buyers want to make the most of their time searching instead of spending endless hours "just looking". When it's time to get down to business, its time to download HomeSnap.
I've provided the link below, this will connect you to my agent profile. If you would like to start the search with me, ask to add me and we can begin working together. No matter what you choose, we at Endres Realty Group and REMAX Direct wish you many happy hours of hunting and may your phone battery endure a long lifetime.
