Characteristics 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. One of the business sector that has benefited with the advancement of technology is real estate. We have app developers who have invented apps that are used for buying and selling houses. It is easy to install the app on one’s gadget and peruse through to see the available houses for sale. The app also allows the seller to post images of the houses for sale. We look at the characteristics of a good real estate app, as well as it benefits to both parties.
A good app should not be complicated. Viewing the images of the houses should also be easy. Once a buyer finds an appropriate home he or she is interested in, contacting the seller should be easy. 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.
Searching for the available houses should also be easy. Searching using keywords should be enabled. 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.
When uploading the images, the process should not be complicated, and the app should state the size of ideal images to be uploaded. To avoid slowing down the app when perusing through the pages, bulky images should be avoided.
For easier access, the app should have the capability to operate on several gadgets and be compatible with common operating systems. Most prospective buyers will install the application on their mobile phones. To ensure the app is up-to-date, the process of downloading and installing new app releases should be easy. The home app should be free to download and install, without charging the user any cash.
The graphical user interface should be easy to use so that several home buyers and sellers can be able to use it. A prospective buyer does not want to waste time perusing through an impossible app as most want to achieve their objectives with ease. 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.
