SEATTLE, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Redfin, the technology-powered real estate brokerage, today announced the Redfin Home Tour Request feature for its iPhone and iPad applications. As always, touring a home with a Redfin agent is free of charge with no obligations.
"Mobile tour requests help Redfin customers move faster, and in today's market of scarce inventory, speed matters," said Andy Taylor, Redfin's director of product management. "Now, when you drive by a house you like, you can request a tour quickly and easily from your iPhone."
To request a tour of any active listing, customers tap the new "Add to Tour List" button, choose the desired home to tour, and choose a time. Once a request is submitted, a Redfin tour coordinator calls the customer within two hours to confirm details and finalize the schedule. Tours can often take place on the same day they are requested.
Redfin Home Tour Requests compliment the company's other speed- and convenience-oriented mobile features, such as Mobile Instant Updates about price or status changes, and email notifications that alert customers within minutes of a home appearing on the market.
