Trulia’s New Smartphone App

If you think about it, there’s an app for everything; there are food apps, health and fitness apps, gaming apps, and even mobile banking apps. The one app, however, that’s new to the market are real estate apps. Before, buying and selling was done through online listing services, but now the real estate industry is branching out, making it easier for buyers and sellers to access online listings through mobile devices. From computers to smartphones, it’s easier to gain access with the touch of a finger.

There are a few online listing services that have created their own apps, like HomeFinder and Zillow, but none of them compare to Trulia’s mobile platform. Trulia has become a common name in the real estate industry. This is because their top priority is finding the right home in the right neighborhood for all. And by launching this app that fits right into the pockets of the user, it’s great news for those with busy schedules because when looking to sell your home, time is just as valuable as money.

Offered to both Android and iOS users, Trulia’s smartphone app provides many features. For one, the greatest feature that is recognized by consumers the most, is the ability to alert users to new listings nearby them.

The Trulia’s smartphone app notifies the consumers when a listing has been made, it can be at any time of the day, any where during the day. After downloading the app, users can opt in to this new feature, where consumers get alerts when a “for sale” or “for rent” home that meets their search criteria hits the market from a quarter of a mile to up to five miles away from where they are.

The application was created to alert consumers of new, local listings when they’re out and about, not at home searching online. Therefore, consumers can still carry out their daily routines, instead of vigorously house hunting. The other great thing about this feature is consumers get to choose how they can see these alerts, either on their lock screens or within the app’s notifications center.

In addition, consumers can choose to receive alerts on newly listed homes based on a variety of sorting, including whether they’re for sale or for rent, price range, and number of bedrooms and bathrooms. This narrows down the search and mimics the website’s famous setup.

Trulia believes this feature will attract more users and thus, gain more downloads. In turn, making Trulia’s smartphone app quick and painless, similar to that online. Buyers and sellers will appreciate this app and never have a problem buying a home again.
