We are pleased to announce the release of the Fine Homes Team real estate app for iPhones and iPads (II and the most recent release). Our apologies to Android users, but very soon we will release the Android version as well. This application is designed to serve people searching for a home in the metro-Tucson housing market.
You can find the “App” at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fine-homes-team/id511938203?ls=1&mt=8 , or if you go to the Apple Applications Store just search for the “Fine Homes Team” App. The avatar (included to the left of this article) helps to identify this application as unique to the Tucson area.
We heard consumer’s voice their frustration with mobile home search applications like Zillow and Trulia. These sites continue to post homes long after they have been sold. Why do they do that? They are in the business of selling “prospect leads” to Realtors. The more inquiries they have, the more leads they have to sell. Often the property a home buyer finds that may be “the perfect home” has been sold and has actually been off the market for months. We’ve solved for this annoying problem for consumers.Users of the Fine Homes Team mobile device application will see homes that are “Active” in the Tucson Multiple Listing Service when they use the “Nearby Properties Search” function. The “Active” status means they really are for sale. The information we serve up is complete with photos, vital statistics and a full description of the property. We’ve built in geo-location technology that finds your phone and delivers information on the home that are closest to you when you initiate your search. You can also find homes by specific address and by MLS# if you have it. Searching for a home when inventory is limited is difficult enough, now you can find the information you need quickly.
