Realtor.com® Enhances Popular Real Estate App For IOS And Android





SAN JOSE, Calif., July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, realtor.com®, the leader in online real estate, operated by Move, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOVE), announced version 5.0 of its free realtor.com ® real estate app for iOS and Android. The latest version features several key enhancements to offer users a more interactive, enjoyable and seamless house-hunting experience. Users can now view larger, higher resolution photos and share listings for the first time on social media channels including Facebook and Twitter.

In addition to sharing listings on social networks and viewing listings with larger, higher resolution photos, users will be able to quickly access shortcuts using a new shortcuts menu. iPhone and Android users will be able to view listings in a new photo gallery tab and see photos of listings without leaving search results, which will create a more visual experience to aid in the home buying process.

"The house hunting process can be cumbersome on its own," said Errol Samuelson, chief strategy officer of Move, Inc. and president of realtor.com ® . "With every new offering from realtor.com ® , we make that process easier with new tools and capabilities. We are continuing to improve and enhance our customers' experiences, and this update is another step to put consumers first and help people love where they live."

The realtor.com ® real estate app already boasts search-enhancing features including search-by-school functionality, which was added in April, and the ability to draw and create a custom search grid directly on mobile devices. Real estate agents can also use the app to connect and search with clients to help everyone stay connected while looking for a home to buy or sell.

"Our world is constantly becoming more connected, so being able to add a social element to our app for users to share their real estate journey with friends and family was an absolute must in our development," said Scott Boecker, chief product officer at Move, Inc. "The realtor.com ® app allows users to share the experience of buying and selling a home and get feedback they desire while easily navigating the market."

Since its 2009 launch, the realtor.com ® real estate app has been a top resource for those on the hunt for their perfect property. In the first quarter of 2013, the number of realtor.com ® mobile app users grew by over 60 percent and accounted for nearly 50 percent of all listing detail pages viewed. The v5.0 update continues to help home buyers find their dream home and find it first.

Realtor.com ® leverages its unique, direct relationships with more than 800 Multiple Listing Services (MLSs), enabling consumers to search 98 percent of all for-sale properties listed in the U.S. With on-the-go access to this robust database and approximately 90 percent of listings updated every 15 minutes, realtor.com ® provides the most accurate and comprehensive information in the industry.
