While working with my latest home buyers here in Greater Vancouver I introduced them the Realtor.ca app offered by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA.) This is an all-in-one mobile phone app which is in my opinion the most comprehensive yet easiest to use. If you are familiar with the Realtor.ca website you will definately appreciate the information this app provides to you at your fingertips. The best part is that the app is available on all the major mobile platforms. The Buyers and Sellers I work with now have the ability to check out houses whenever they want, wherever they want. The portable, on-the-go information that the REALTOR.ca app provides makes the home and property hunt that much easier.
The app provides users with the features and functionality of REALTOR.ca and takes full advantage device features, such as:
- Using the handheld’s GPS technology:
- Properties Near Me - get up-to-date property information, photos and driving directions;
- New Listings Near Me – recent listings in the area you’re visiting;
- 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.
