Italian property website Idealista.it has launched a new app which allow users to draw the zone they want to live in on a map using their mobile device.
Available in Spanish, Italian and Portuguese the new app, Idealista, allows users to save their search and automatically receive notifications when available properties are published on the site.
“It's an innovative new formula to help you find the ideal home,” says Idealista founder Jesús Encinar.
“Idealista improves the mobile user experience because it allows you to draw a search area directly on to a map; save your research and then receive notifications of new listings posted in the area," Encinar says.
He says research using Idealisa is more precise as it is specifically customized to the location a user desires.
“With this new feature you can draw the zone you want in the city with your finger. It lets you discover all the homes for sale or for rent within the area of interest.
“It means users will only see ads for the houses that really interest them,” Encinar says.
“The new app also allows you to save your own research and create an alert system so when a new property matching your criteria is posted on Idealista.com you’ll be the first to see it."
The mobile app is compatible with both iOS and Android.
