UK-based RightmoveRighthere.com recently introduced a new app which enables users to search for nearby properties for sale on a satellite map.
The web app, Virtual Signz, uses the web address RightmoveRighthere.com and displays virtual ‘for sale’ or ‘for rent’ boards in the selected region.
Buyers, sellers, agents or just the ‘plain curious’ allow the website access their location, after which they are able to see homes for sale or rent within a half-mile radius via Google Maps, and the search can be expanded by zooming out of the map.
By clicking on the displayed virtual signs, users are re-directed to Rightmove listings. The app is free to use but agents can pay to have the virtual boards display their own branding.
Virtual Signz (VSignz) is the brainchild of Corin Ashbee-Waugh, who has previously worked for agents such as Chancellors as well as running his own firm.
