Qualities of a Good Real Estate App
The growth of technology has simplified the process of buying and selling. More so, companies that have invested in technology have realized a tremendous growth. 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.
A good app should not be complicated. It should allow the app users to see pictures of all the houses for sale. The app should allow the user to make contact with the seller, providing a feature for inputting contact details. The real estate app should also allow the sellers to list some of the discounted homes for sale, as well as any commission offered to the broker who wish to sell the house on behalf of the seller.
The app should have a search button where buyers look for houses they wish to buy. A good app allows the user to filter the search results using desired keywords such as price, location, etc. For reference purposes, the results should be available anytime time the app user want to access them. The houses posted should have all the required details. The information is vital to every home seller.
The process of uploading pictures should be easy and the app should have a limit of the size of the image to be uploaded. Pages do not open easily when the users upload bulky images.
The app should work with common operating systems and devices. Most prospective buyers will install the application on their mobile phones. Downloading and installation of the update to ensure it remains up-to-date should also be easy. The home app should be free to download and install, without charging the user any cash.
The app should also have an easy to use interface, to allow several home buyers and sellers access it with ease. 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.
