RISMEDIA, December 15, 2009—HomeFinder.com, which connects home buyers, sellers and real estate professionals locally and nationally, announced the launch of “Open Houses,” an iPhone application dedicated to helping homebuyers find open houses and connect with a qualified local Realtor. The application, which is free, can be downloaded from the iPhone App Store and will run on both the iPhone and iPod Touch.
According to the company, HomeFinder.com has a significant number of open house listings, as a result of its partnerships with 130+ local newspapers across the country, uniquely positioning it as an indispensable source for consumers planning a day of house hunting. The Open Houses app features: One click access to open houses around a user’s location through the iPhone’s native location-aware technology; easy access to contacting selling agents via email or phone about a specific property from within the application; integrated mapping and point-to-point driving directions through Google Maps and the ability to save properties, view photos/detailed floor plans and browse HomeFinder.com’s listing database of over 3.5 million homes for sale
“The mobile platform is a perfect match for house hunting, which requires leaving the desk to go out and tour houses,” said Tim Fagan, HomeFinder.com’s CEO. “With the Open Houses app, consumers can now find- and get to- open houses from wherever they happen to be, without printing directions, property flyers or taking time to view homes that do not match their criteria.”
