Scotland's largest dedicated property platform s1homes.com says the launched of its new mobile app dedicated to the rental market for both iOS and Android will strengthen its position in the Scottish market.
Build in-house by the s1 technical team, the new app allows users to find a rented home anywhere in Scotland. Users can search, save their criteria and create property alerts that can be received straight to their device or by email.
For letting agents, the app will give them even more access to potential Scottish tenants, since users can contact them by just clicking the email or call option.
The app launch coincides with the return of s1homes.com's 'Local knowledge' campaign ” which will run across radio, digital and social, with the aim of reinforcing the message that if you want to rent in Scotland, 'use the folk from Scotland'.
Marketing Director Wendy Pauley says the development of the new app, reflects s1homes.com's strategy of moving forward to strengthen its position within the Scottish market.
“Home-seekers in the rental market have much more of a sense of urgency than buyers," Pauley says.
"Users searching for rental properties have different needs and we’ve developed an app that focuses on speed and convenience to suit those needs.
" The new app offers their rental users an easier way to find a home on the move. It makes it much simpler to scroll and store properties from your phone and be notified as soon as new properties become available, which is exactly what a rental homeseeker wants.”
Launched in 2001, s1homes has grown to become the biggest property site in Scotland with over 30,000 properties for sale and rent.
It attracts over 500,000 homeseekers every month.
