Realtor.com Increases Search Power of Android App

Enhanced Search and Personalization Features Added to Realtor.com® Android App

CAMPBELL, Calif., June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Realtor.com is adding its signature Area Scout and 'My Real Estate' experience to its Android app, giving Android users a more powerful and personalized real estate search experience. Launched and available today by Move, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOVE), the leader in online real estate, other key enhancements on the Realtor.com Android app include a new home screen to find recent searches and saved listings faster, enhanced contact features that make staying in touch with agents easier, and instant access to all nearby open house events within one to 20 miles of a user's location.

Realtor.com mobile apps deliver the largest and most accurate collection of online property listings with more than 80 percent of all property listings updated every 15 minutes and the remaining updated every one to 24 hours.

The free Realtor.com Real Estate Android app was first launched in November 2010, and is compatible with Android 2.01 and later. It can be downloaded at http://www.realtor.com/mobile/Android or at the Android Market(TM): https://market.android.com/details?id=com.move.realtor&feature=search_result.

Today, 13 properties are viewed every second on a Realtor.com mobile app including the Android, iPhone, Windows Phone 7 and iPad. In May, more than 1 million active Realtor.com mobile app users viewed 35.6 million homes on Realtor.com, a 33.5 percent increase in home views in one month. In the past three months, active users of Realtor.com mobile apps have increased by 40.7 percent and user outreach to agents while using a Realtor.com mobile app has increased 24.3 percent

Key benefits to Android users resulting from today's Realtor.com Android app update include:

  • Know the list prices in a neighborhood at a glance anywhere in the U.S. with Area Scout. It's fast and allows users to see the list price of all homes in a neighborhood down to street levels. Tap the list price icon and a listing detail bubble instantly appears on the map surfacing the street address, number of bedrooms and number of bathrooms. Tap again and the user is taken to the listing's detail page.
  • Personalize your search with addition of the "My Real Estate" experience. As a result, Android users can instantly access 'My Listings', 'My Saved Searches' and 'My Recent Searches' by using one easy-to-find icon visible throughout the app. Once stored, these searches and listings are available via each user's personal Realtor.com account on a desk top and on all Realtor.com mobile brand apps. Users can also sort, refine or filter search results according to what's important to them - price, distance, square footage. Users can also create new searches for homes or open houses based on their location, MLS ID number, by city, state, or street.
  • Staying Connected with an agent from each listing detail page via email to ask questions or to schedule a tour is now effortless for Realtor.com Android app users. Android users can now also store their agent's contact details within the app so it's easier to send notes, comments and ratings about properties to your agent without having to enter their email address each time. In addition, users can now select email addresses from their phone's contact list with one tap and listings are instantly forwarded for sharing and consideration with your friends, family or agent.

"Realtor.com is committed to giving people the tools and connections they need to buy and sell homes with the technology that meets their lifestyle. By continually updating all of our apps so they deliver the power of Realtor.com anywhere and at any time, buyers and agents can remain better connected and more productive together," said Realtor.com President, Errol Samuelson. "Through mobile, Realtor.com is helping turn what once was a lengthy process into literally a matter of hours or days. To say we're excited about where our mobile technology is taking us would be an understatement. We expect these updates and those planned later this year will continue to evolve property search."

In February 2011, the Realtor.com Android mobile app was the only real estate search app showcased at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, the world's largest mobile exhibition and congress. Spanning 219 countries, the GSMA Mobile World Congress unites nearly 800 of the world's mobile operators and 200 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem.
