RealtyBaron has announced the launch of its Real Estate Answers app for ioS. The app enables users to surface market information that's expired, omitted, or erroneous in popular real estate search apps while remaining anonymous. This allows buyers and sellers a bridge between the information gap and data quality problems created by popular real estate search engines like Zillow.
"Not listing the height of the garage doors is very frustrating," said Edith Myers in a recent review of Zillow's app. "We own a F350 super duty which doesn't fit in a standard 7 ft door. We have to have 8 ft doors. Also, listings are not kept up to date, many are sold and not removed."
Without revealing a consumer's identity, Real Estate Answers instantly broadcasts questions to a pool of local real estate experts eager to offer their expertise and local knowledge. Answers are pushed to the consumer's device as soon as they are received.
Consumers can explore local activity by choosing from a list of nearby homes or enter any metro, city, ZIP code, or address in the United States or Canada to see questions and answers from distant locations.
When a consumer is ready to speak to a professional, Real Estate Answers can connect the consumer with a local real estate expert by phone within seconds.
"Unlike financial markets, real estate market information is imperfect and incumbent real estate search apps continue to struggle with data quality," said Marc Dugger, Founder of RealtyBaron. "Our Real Estate Answers app empowers consumers to request reliable and timely information from those who know best -- local market insiders -- without giving up identifying information."
