Considering that the real estate market has been a bit of a roller coaster ride the past few years, many house hunters are opting to rent instead of purchase their next home. But, don’t think for a minute that the rental market is any less of a ride.
Finding the perfect rental can be a competitive and stressful adventure, so Homes.com has launched its new mobile application to help savvy renters on the go.
With this new app, Homes.com shows how well they “get” the home search by offering relevant information – not just the basics. The app is the first in the market to offer current commute times for points of interest such as a user’s place of employment, gym or shopping locations. And, the app is the only one currently available from national real estate search sites that allows renters to easily filter search results based on pet-friendly rentals.
“With year-over-year rental search traffic growing on Homes.com by more than 514 percent on mobile devices, our first priority in designing the rentals mobile app was to create an optimal shopping experience for renters,” said Brock MacLean, executive vice president of Homes.com in a press release. “The new app allows consumers to customize searches, instantly view and save listings, and connect with agents or property managers.”
The Homes.com app is available for both iOS and Android devices with additional iOS7 features, and you can check it out for yourself on the company’s website.
