)-- Finding a new place to rent or own has never been easier or more fun now that the RE/MAX Northern Illinois real estate network is marketing a revolutionary state-of-the art real estate app that is free to consumers and RE/MAX Northern Illinois agents and works with both Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. (To see a brief video of the app’s highlights go to: http://goo.gl/EvF2H4.)
The RE/MAX Northern Illinois Real Estate App, which can be found in Android and Apple app stores, provides the most comprehensive real estate data available in northern Illinois because it offers active, sold and pending listings directly from the MLS and not third parties. (Visit http://www.illinoisproperty.com/realestateapp.aspx to download the app.)
Two of the most innovative features of the RE/MAX Northern Illinois Real Estate App are:
1. MAXview Technology, which allows consumers to use the camera on their mobile device to view homes for sale in their immediate area in real time and see full listing details and photos.
2. Commute Time Search, which provides consumers the ability to search for properties that are most convenient to them by entering desired drive times, transit times, cycling or walk times. Each variable displays homes for sale based on the criteria entered. For example, a user can enter a desired drive time to work for himself and spouse, as well as a desired walking or bicycling distance to a child’s school, in order to get a map of homes for sale meeting those criteria.
The RE/MAX Northern Illinois Real Estate app delivers all the features the public comes to expect with a real estate app, plus the ability to do highly interactive map searches, GPS enabled searches, and draw customized search areas. Results yield full listing details and large photos, as well as photos of comparable properties users can review side by side.
Consumers who sign up for a free “My RE/MAX” account can save their favorite properties and get a full market perspective by having access to detailed data about pending or recently sold properties.
“Once you start using this app, it’s hard to put down. It provides a multitude of relevant ways to search for a home that’s right for you,” stated Casey Reagan, Chief Technology Officer for the RE/MAX Northern Illinois network. “It’s been tremendously satisfying to deliver an app that helps people navigate one of the biggest investments in their life in an informative and fun way.”
RE/MAX Northern Illinois brokers will be able to personalize the app and share it with clients as their own in a variety of ways.
