Domain Group is helping house hunters closely watch the property market, literally, with a new app for the Apple Watch due for release on 24 April 2015.
The Apple Watch app, uniquely augmented on Domain’s award-winning iPhone app, will equip home seekers with a personal companion on their property journey, providing easy access to the information they need throughout the buying, selling, renting and searching process.
“Finding a place to live can be a very personal process. It often takes up a lot of time and actually becomes a big part of your life.” he said. “We also know more and more people are looking for a home on their smartphones or tablets when they’re out and about, on the way to work or relaxing at home.
“The Apple Watch is a great piece of personal technology that will no doubt hook into this trend. So it was important for us to create a useful tool that integrates the search for property seamlessly into a person’s life, making their overall property experience more enjoyable and efficient.
“The app will also give wearers context–specific data, keeping them up-to-date so they can make informed decisions that are right for them. Having real-time updates related to the property market is a great way to empower consumers, and the Domain app for the Apple Watch lends itself perfectly to this.
"We're geared up for a big year in consumer technology development. Completing the pair of wearable apps, first for Android and now for iOS, signals the next phase of Domain's broader, mobile-first strategy,” said Pezaro.
Domain’s Apple Watch app will be available to download free from the Apple App Store following the release of the watch on 24 April 2015.
