NORFOLK, Va., Oct. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Homes.com® has re-launched its Homes, Apartments, and Real Estate search app with version 7.0 for iOS and Android. Completely overhauled and featuring new tools and resources, the app utilizes Homes.com mobile technology with advanced features for consumer ease-of-use. Redesigned with a modern look and improved speed and functionality, the new application introduces easier navigation, an innovative commute time feature and more options for sorting and filtering homes.
"Homes.com is consistently monitoring trends and market conditions to ensure the brands are providing the best possible technology to business partners and consumers alike," said Dave Mele, president of Homes.com. "The Renter Profile Insights Report shared that more than 50 percent of consumers take close proximity to work and school into account when choosing a location to call home. Therefore, the state-of-the-art commute time feature will be crucial in helping to get the most out of the search process. Homes.com continues to push the envelope so consumers can take advantage of cutting edge technology in the search for the perfect home."
In order to create more options for sorting and filtering homes, the updated Homes.com mobile app is a solid foundation from which to continue building additional tools and features for a continuously improving user search experience. The introduction of the commute time feature tool is only one of the app's main features. Additional highlights include:
- Commute Time: Automatically computes commute times to important locations. Key for today's on-the-go consumer.
- Infinite Scrolling: Users can scroll to continuously view results instead of running into dead ends, viewing thousands of homes without ever clicking a button.
