Do you use Realtor.ca/MLS.ca on the desktop? If so, you don’t have to stop searching on the go. Realtor.ca has launched its first iPhone/Blackberry/Android App. The best thing is that, it is a free download.
The app provides users with the features and functionality of REALTOR.ca and takes advantage of Apple iPhone device features, such as:
- Using the handheld’s GPS technology:
o Properties Near Me – get up-to-date property information, photos and driving directions;
o New Listings Near Me – recent listings in the area you’re visiting;
o Open Houses Near Me – find open houses near your present location;
- My Agent – Contact either your agent(s), or the listing agent for more information about a specific property;
- Property Search – Search for houses and properties across Canada, and connect with REALTORS® to view, buy or sell a property;
- Personalized settings allowing the user to set default language, unit of measure, how properties are displayed, and search radius for “Near Me” searches;
- Interactive BING mapping is embedded to allow focus on specific neighbourhoods;
- Scheduled Open Houses can be added to the device’s calendar.
The GPS function is my favourite feature because the App automatically gathers listings that is surround you. As a Real Estate Sales Representative, I use it to show my clients the location of surrounding homes that are also for sale.
The App takes http://www.realtor.ca and takes it to the next level. Before the app was created, logging onto http://www.realtor.ca on the safari browser was a pain in the neck. The loading times were long and there was no way of scrolling the map. With this app, that is all fix. Scrolling the map and updating the properties are instantaneous.
