REALTOR.ca app for the iPhone

iPhone Apps
The Canadian Real Estate Association recently released the GPS location based REALTOR.ca mobile application for Apple iPhone.  REALTOR.ca is the most visited real estate website in Canada, listing on average some 350,000 properties at any time.

“This free application brings Apple iPhone users the features and functionality of the REALTOR.ca website, as well as some interesting device-specific features” said CREA president Georges Pahud.

The free REALTOR.ca app will allow you to connect to area listings as you drive around neighborhoods.

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;
o    My Agent – Contact either your agent(s), or the listing agent for more information about a specific property;
o    Property Search - Search for houses and properties across Canada, and connect with REALTORS® to view, buy or sell a property;
o    Personalized settings allowing the user to set default language, unit of measure, how properties are displayed, and search radius for “Near Me” searches;
o    Interactive BING mapping is embedded to allow focus on specific neighborhoods;
o    Scheduled Open Houses can be added to the device’s calendar.

“When considering one of life’s biggest financial transactions, easily accessible, detailed information about homes and neighborhoods, as well as access to REALTORS®, helps people make well-informed decisions” stated Pahud.

With the addition of the Apple iPhone app, REALTOR.ca is also available on the Windows Phone 7®, and in the BlackBerry app store.
