Virginia-based Homes.com®, announced the launch of its Homes.com Rentals Mobile App, the company’s first dedicated rental app optimized for mobile users.
The company claims its new app is the first in the market to offer current commute times for points of interest such as user’s place of employment, gym or shopping, tailoring the app to today’s on-the-go consumer.
Users can easily browse an expansive database of rental listings on the Homes.com app, including rentals listed on sister site, ForRent.com, the exclusive provider of apartment listings on Homes.com.
Homes.com developed the smartphone app for use on both iOS and Android devices and included iOS7 features such as natural navigation gestures.
“With year-over-year rental search traffic growing on Homes.com by more than 514 percent on mobile devices, our first priority in designing the rentals mobile app was to create an optimal shopping experience for renters,” said Brock MacLean, executive vice president of Homes.com. “The new app allows consumers to customize searches, instantly view and save listings, and connect with agents or property managers. Whether a renter is searching for a place to celebrate, create or unwind, the place to find it is Homes.com.”
The Homes.com Rentals App is the only app currently available from national real estate search sites that allows renters to easily filter search results based on pet-friendly rentals. Map searches are made simple with slide and tap navigation, all while referencing a geo-targeted map for an easy view of points of interest throughout the search experience.
As a benefit to advertisers, the new Homes.com Rentals App will launch with expansive rental inventory provided exclusively by ForRent.com and participating Homes.com agents, brokers, and MLSs. Additionally, all consumer inquiries will be sent to the advertiser for lead follow-up.
The new Homes.com Rentals App can be found within the Homes.com Mobile App Library.
