Responding to studies showing today's homebuyers rely on mobile content and the Internet for home searching, Buyer's Edge, a leading Bethesda, MD-based Exclusive Buyer Brokerage firm, introduced a free mobile app that allows users to browse homes, condos and town homes available in the thriving Washington DC, MD and VA communities. They can view MLS listings anytime, anywhere from the convenience of any smartphone. The Home Search Mobile App can be downloaded at BuyersAgent.com.
The new Home Search Mobile App features up-to-date listing data connected to the MLS in the user's area. It allows them to search by community, price and property type within a 1-5 mile radius of their current location. It lists detailed property information, including price, beds/baths, taxes, estimated mortgage, interior and exterior features, and features multiple photos. When ready to view a property, users can e-mail a request for a showing and/or to receive additional information.
"When prospective buyers have a real estate question they want it answered immediately," said Steve Israel, President of Buyer's Edge. "Mobile technology allows them to check on listings when they may be walking their dog past a beautiful new home for sale, or on their way to the office and like the house for sale on the corner, as an example. We used our resources to create a premier search tool to help them find a home in a neighborhood that offers everything they need to make a life in one of DC's finest communities."
Many of the Mobile Real Estate Apps are difficult to use, muddled with old information, and showing properties that are "Under Contract" or actually already "Sold," all in the interest of making the phone ring for the Seller's Agents of those properties. The Buyer's Edge App is different – showing only properties that are "Active" listings.
