Canadians will now be able to shop for a new home right from their mobile device (as long as it’s running Windows Phone 7) using the REALTOR.ca for Windows Phone 7 released by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA).
“Allowing people to check out houses whenever they want, wherever they want, will make the home and property hunt that much easier,” said CREA President Georges Pahud. “Today’s consumers want portable, on-the-go information and REALTORS across Canada are happy to be able to meet this need with the new REALTOR.ca app.”
Much like the Realtors.ca website, the mobile app will allow users to search for real estate across Canada and view photos, listed properties and open house information. The app also leverages the devices’ GPS capabilities to facilitate searches.
CREA has confirmed that iPhone and BlackBerry versions are coming soon. There is no word yet on an Android version.
