Free Real Estate App Provides Consumers with Most Comprehensive Home Search Experience on the Market
NORFOLK, VA – November 18, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Homes Media Solutions, sister real estate brand of For Rent Media Solutions™ and branch of Dominion Enterprises, announced today the expansion of the Homes.com mobile suite with the release of its iPad application for home and rental searches. The Homes.com iPad application joins the company’s widely successful release of home search apps for iPhone, Blackberry, Windows 7 and Android users.
Home.com’s iPad app has been specifically designed to provide home buyers and renters with an intuitive, highly targeted and easily navigable property search experience, complete with extensive listing details, powerful sort and filter tools, sweeping photos, interactive maps, driving directions, favorite property management and share features, an integrated real estate agent search and more valuable home search tools for nearly four million property listings.
Jason Doyle, Homes.com vice president and general manager, believes the Homes.com iPad app is one of the most user-friendly home search tools on the market. “Creating a specially designed home search application available for use by millions of iPad users reinforces our commitment to directly connecting with and effectively serving all consumers through every step of the home search process,” says Doyle. “Homes.com has spent considerable research and time in developing what we believe is a very interactive, all-inclusive and valuable home search medium which will enable home buyers and renters even greater ability and flexibility in finding their next home quickly and easily.”
If the renter is seeking an apartment, the ForRent.com iPad application, released last year, offers an intuitive display to those searching for apartments. Users can search for apartments using the map feature and use the notepad feature on the right to review the results. When using the notepad feature, once the renter has reviewed all the properties that have appeared on that page, they can “turn the page” and be presented with more listings. The ForRent.com iPad app also incorporates full screen videos.
