You know how you can check in to flights on your phone and then scan your pass at the airport from the screen to board the plane? Well, Australian property marketplace Domain is launching just that for property inspections — it’s called Domain Check-in.
The company says from today, the industry will undergo a mobile check-in revolution just like the airline, travel and events industries have experienced in recent years, with the launch of Domain Check-in.
Now, when Australians are on the Saturday morning property inspection trail, racing between appointments, they can avoid the dreaded line to fill in their contact details on an agent's clipboard.
Users only have to register their details once to be automatically checked in at all enabled inspections, designated by the icon at the corner of a listing.
It saves both property seekers and agents loads of time and is another example of the cool tech tools Domain is bringing to market to help house hunters find a home sooner.
Domain Check-in enables home hunters with the Domain app to register their details once on their smartphone, browse properties for sale, add them to the inspection planner and automatically generate an inspection pass.
When arriving at an inspection, those details will sync with the agent’s phone, meaning there’s no need to queue to give names and contact details at each home viewed. All information about the property being inspected is also available at your fingertips in the app.
Domain Chief Product Officer Damon Pezaro says anyone who has spent time looking for property knows how time-consuming the process of inspections can be.
"People are used to seamless mobile registration processes in other industries, so we’re excited to bring the property market up to the same standards," he says.
“Property hunters should be asking their agents to get on board with Domain Check-in to make their lives a whole lot easier. It simplifies the whole process and saves weekends.
Belle Property's Nick Deflorio who trialed Domain Check-in with his buyers says house inspections have been totally revolutionised for those buyers using the app.
"It’s much more efficient and enjoyable for everyone, me included,” he says.
Check-in joins School Zones, Instant Alerts and Home Price Guide within the Domain Property App, oneof Australia's highest rated apps for property.
Domain Check-in is now available to Domain’s app users, with more than 3000 agencies across Australia on-boarding their property listings progressively.
