Searching for a home just got simpler. Realtor.com has launched the realtor.com Express Home Search app for iOS9. The express version of the realtor.com Real Estate app offers six key features, including school search and 3D maps, as well as a streamlined interface.
"Empowering people by making all things home simple, efficient and enjoyable, means we have to be where our users are, giving them access to the information they want anytime, anywhere in a mobile format that best suits their needs," said Tapan Bhat, chief product officer for realtor.com.
