Looking for the perfect dream home but tired of the daunting process of searching and searching? This is a thing of the past with the official REALTOR.com Real Estate Search app for your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. With the official REALTOR.com app, you get the most accurate and up-to-date search results for any property your heart desires. The REALTOR.com app also features stunning photos for you to view while you're on the go, straight to your phone!
This app is free in the App Store and is available for real estate in the United States. It is, of course, available internationally for users who want to search for properties in the United States.
The layout is one of the best features of this app. When opened, you are greeted with six large buttons that allow your iOS device to perform local searches for open houses, recently sold houses and, of course, nearby houses for sale. You are also given the option to sign into your REALTOR.com account to sync all of your favorite homes you've previously searched for right to your iOS device. Throughout the app, the layout will change to suit your user preferences. For example, when you are viewing a property's information, there are several buttons you can press, including overview, details, photos, contact, ask a question, save this listing, my notes, and even a 5-star rating system.
When you start a new search you're given several options including For Sale, MLS ID for those who are looking for homes listed in Multiple Listing Services (MLS), Sold, and For Rent. By entering your location's City, State, Zip Code, Address, Street, or Neighborhood, you're instantly shown a beautiful map with pins showing you the locations of all the nearby results, as well as an abbreviated price inside of the pin. You also have the option of setting parameters like price, house size, radius to the specified location, etc. If maps aren't your preference, there is an option to view listings as a gallery where you are brought to beautiful pictures of the houses with abbreviated information that you can then tap on to reveal more extensive information.
