Must-have features for your real estate app
Any realtor or estate agent needs a feature-packed mobile app to succeed in this highly competitive industry. Here are a few features you’ll definitely want to include in yours:
Enables users to discover properties listed on your app. Make finding their dream home simple with a smart, easy-to-use search feature.
You need this so your app users can sort and filter your properties. Cost, property type and location are helpful ways to filter property search results. And you can add any others you want.
This is one of the most important features to have in your real estate app. It lets your app users shortlist the properties they like, remove or add extra ones later on.
Live chat or chatbots help you to connect with potential customers while they’re using your app. Helping them through live chat, makes it much easier to convert them into customers.
To convert your app users into customers, you need their data. Lead capturing or “get in touch with us” feature captures your app users’ data and sends it to you.
This isn’t essential but it could be a smart additional feature of your app if you only show properties listed in your user’s location.
“I want to visit your property.” These are the words, every realtor or a property dealer wants to hear. This feature allows you to capture the data of all interested customers.
What do you get in your real estate app?
There are apps and there are apps… We build industry-standard apps that not only fulfill your business needs but also sync with other property discovery platforms, APIs and MLS. Here’s what you can expect.
Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
MLS allows you to sell other broker’s properties on your mobile app or website using a centralised-shared property database. This facility means you can make money while displaying and selling other dealer’s properties, under an agreement where you share a commission.
We make sure your apps are ready to integrate with the IDX system. That means you can connect or disconnect with MLS (see above), anytime you want. It’s not just a one-time integration but a plug and play – where you can add or remove MLS from your app, whenever it suits your business.
Why Builder Studio?
Software as easy as ordering a pizza. It’s true! All you need to do is find an app that’s similar to the one you want to build, then decide which of its features (things like Facebook login or push notifications) you want to remove and add any new ones you like.
The future of your app?
The success of your mobile app depends on its functionality, the marketing you do for it and the number of properties listed there. Today, it’s very difficult to operate your business without having marketable digital assets that not only display your products but also generate leads and business for you.
We’ve helped numerous realtors to put their business online and would love to help you transform your business too. So, what are you waiting for? Start building your real estate mobile app, without coding a single line.
