Germany's Immonet has just released its iPhone app 2.0, ringing in the next generation of mobile real estate search. Users can now easily mark their desired neighbourhood or residential area in the app's map by just drawing the selection with their finger on their iPhone's screen; the app features larger images of properties selected; quick, attractive and intuitive user navigation as well as advanced search functions.
Since most people searching for real estate have a clear idea of what their dream home should be like, the new start screen of the Immonet iPhone app can be customised to the user’s requirements – intuitive, convenient and user-friendly. In addition to price, size and number of rooms, the app lets the user select highly individual criteria such as accessibility, guest bathrooms or garages.
Moreover, users can quickly switch between list and map views of the property. Additional information, including doctors, shops, restaurants, and educational and leisure facilities in the vicinity can also be selected and displayed on the map view.
With a simple swipe on the screen, users can directly move houses they like to their favourites list, or sort them out. They can also simply touch the ‘Like’ button to move their dream home to their favourites list.
The property details offer a convenient, at-a-glance overview of the essential information, such as size, rooms, price and address, as well as the seller’s contact data. There is also a new option that lets users transfer notes, photos, dates and appointments to their own pinboard and save them.
Users can directly contact the seller right from the property details list, and also save dates and appointments and synchronise them with the iPhone calendar. In addition, there is an integrated route planner for calculating the route and directions to the selected property.
“We have thoroughly examined conventional mobile search concepts and focused on exploring new paths. The result: A visionary application tailored to the users’ requirements, proving that we are the innovation leader in real estate searches,” said Christian Maar, CEO of Immonet.
