The search power of Realtor.com is now available on the iPad at http://www.realtor.com/mobile/iPad. Launched today by Move, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOVE), the leader in online real estate, the Realtor.com iPad app is the only real estate search app delivering everything from listings with maps and GPS directions to personalization tools that keep users organized and connected when searching across country or across town. Realtor.com mobile apps are also the only real estate search apps with access to Realtor.com, the largest and most accurate collection of online property listings, with more than 80 percent of all property listings updated every 15 minutes.
Today, 10 properties are viewed every second on a Realtor.com mobile app, including the iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 7, and now iPad at http://www.realtor.com/mobile. Realtor.com mobile apps have been downloaded 3.6 million times and active users have increased by 79 percent in four months.
“With a Realtor.com mobile app, there’s no waiting or wondering anymore if a property is on or off the market, how much it costs, or if it will fit your needs,” said Steve Berkowitz, chief executive officer of Move, Inc., operator of Realtor.com. “Mobile is changing the way people buy and sell homes and our iPad app opens up real estate to millions of people with an amazing visual search experience. It combines mobile’s instant gratification and investigative component that everyone loves with Move’s search technology. We’re very excited to expand our mobile offerings and deliver the power of Realtor.com to millions of iPad users.”
Finding the ideal home among the millions of properties on Realtor.com is fast, easy and fun with the Realtor.com iPad app:
“The Realtor.com iPad app gives buyers and agents everything they need when they need it most to work together successfully in finding properties,” said Realtor.com President, Errol Samuelson. “In the past year, Realtor.com mobile apps have contributed to a 240 percent increase in consumer outreach to local agents, and open house views have increased by 459 percent in just four months. Even more exciting, in-app communication between agents and consumers (1) has increased by 148 percent since December. We’re very excited with the fast adoption of Realtor.com mobile apps by agents and consumers. We expect these numbers will only improve with the launch of our iPad app because it includes so many easy-to-use interactive features that encourage collaboration between agents and consumers.”
