booj launches latest version of its mobile applications for real estate
We're excited to announce that we have officially released the latest version of our mobile app! Available for both Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, the app offers account syncing, agent branding, a variety of different search options, the latest in mobile mapping technology, and much more, making it easier for customers to search for homes on-the-go.
In order to create a seamless experience for customers throughout the home buying process, our app syncs to a customer’s account area, ensuring saved data is accessible anytime, anywhere.
Due to SSO integration, users can choose to login to the app through their existing Facebook or Google account, helping reduce barriers to entry often associated with account creation.
By default, the app is branded to the brokerage, but agents also have the ability to promote agent branded apps through a custom URL or QR code that is available in their admin. When the app opens for the first time, the user is taken to an agent branded welcome screen where they are prompted to login or register for an account.
Once a preferred agent is selected, customers can read testimonials, view their active and sold listings, and save their agent's contact information directly to their phone in a simple click.
Journey Search allows customers to view properties within close proximity to their current location. This search will continue to update available properties as you travel.
Through the Perimeter Search feature, customers can draw boundaries on the map view, allowing them to only view available homes within the perimeters of their search.
Scope Search displays property information on the device when a customer aims their phone’s camera down a street. Information on available properties appears in a pop-up for easy viewing.
Additional Search Filters
Users have the option to narrow their search results using traditional search fields, including property type, price, number of beds/baths and more.
The mapping technology available through our app offers a wide range of features, including:
The search form autocompletes as you begin typing an address or MLS number.
For areas with a high volume of properties for sale, listings are clustered for easy viewing.
Staying consistent with the new web map search, map pins are color coded based on property status.
Users cab hide the listing from their search results if it is not of interest to them.
Localized Search and Data
Neighborhood Boundaries Integration
Neighborhood boundaries will appear on the map when a user searches by a particular neighborhood. Only homes that matches a user’s search criteria will appear within the boundaries on the map.
Neighborhood Statistics and Information
On the property details page, users gain access to rich neighborhood data, including housing market details, the population breakdown, nearby schools, and more to help gain insight on a neighborhood.
Drive Time Integration
Users can find a home based on drive time from important points of interest — such as their office, their child’s school, or their favorite coffee shop.
Other App Features
Once a user clicks through to a property details page within the app, they’re able to easily see additional information on the home. Within the property details page, users also have quick access to the mortgage calculator, can find similar properties and view a map of the area to see the listing’s location.
Recently Viewed Properties
Users can quickly see, at-a-glance, recently viewed properties for their current session.
If a user has alerts setup within their account, they can opt in to receive push notifications when a home matching their criteria hits the market. Users can schedule a showing or request more information directly from within the app to ensure they don’t miss out on the perfect home.
Users who are interested in finding a nearby office can now do that within the app. When a user clicks on the Offices tab, all offices appear on the map. A user can then get turn-by-turn directions to it’s location.
