RISMEDIA, Nov. 24, 2008-Smarter Agent’s Homes for Sale mobile search has launched, accessible to over 50 million AT&T and Sprint customers on 80 different cell phone models.
Over 99% of all mobile location-aware real estate activity is now powered by Smarter Agent. Smarter Agent is the only carrier approved, on-deck mobile search – meaning it has gone through significant security and usability testing to be chosen to be on the carrier (AT&T, Sprint) deck.
Smarter Agent delivers accurate and up-to-the-minute home sale information to a consumer’s cell phone.
What is seismic for the real estate industry, and what differentiates Homes for Sale from other mobile real estate applications, is the comprehensive nature of Smarter Agent’s platform:
More listings: This information is delivered from the country’s top brokerage firms, including cooperative access to their multiple listing (IDX) data feeds. This means just about every home for sale in a particular market can now be viewed by any consumer.
Reaches more consumers: Smarter Agent is already on more cell phones than most mobile applications of any kind. It works, elegantly and simply. Smarter Agent invented and patented the location-aware mobile GPS real estate search. Over the next 100 days, Smarter Agent will launch on every carrier, operating system, and just about every mobile device including iPhones, Blackberries and Android.
Where to get it, now
Smarter Agent can be downloaded from:
– a consumer’s cell phone via AT&T’s Media Mall,
– a consumer’s cell phone via Sprint’s Get New area,
If GPS is available on the consumer’s cell phone, Smarter Agent instantly turns the cell phone into a GPS-triggered real estate finder. This means with just one click, all of the local listings are immediately returned-no typing required! Should the consumer’s cell phone not contain inherent GPS, Smarter Agent also works on all non-GPS enabled devices with a simple to use interface that initiates the search.
Smarter Agent instantly returns all publicly allowable information on a property, such as sales price, taxes, beds/baths, square footage, interior and exterior property descriptions-even pictures. Mapping capabilities also let the user see where they are in relation to the homes. And a button reading “Call to See” routes the user directly to the Broker/Agent Partner, who can show the home.
To provide consumers with the best and most accurate home listing information, Smarter Agent has partnered with premier brokerages across the country, whose combined sales in the past 12 months exceeds $125 billion.
