Realtor.com has long been a trusted source for house hunters. It’s the official site of the National Association of Realtors®, so not only do you get accurate listings and tons of information, Realtor.com also focuses on giving you access to real estate agents and brokers associated with the National Association of Realtors nationwide.
You’re met with a variety of options when you launch the Realtor.com app. You can browse Nearby Homes for Sale, Open Houses, Recently Sold and Rental Locations. Any search produces a long list of properties, which you can sort by price, number of photos, newest and distance. You can also view these properties on a map, if that’s more helpful. Click on any listing and you get a slideshow of photos as well as property information.
The property information gets pretty granular, including details such as the home’s flooring materials, room dimensions, fireplace locations and heating features. Really, you get whatever the property’s agent provides Realtor.com.
Speaking of, you also get a photo, name and contact information of the real estate agent working the property whom you can quickly email or call for more information, all through the app.
See a house you want to check out in person? You can save any property to your Realtor.com account or share it via text, Twitter and Facebook.
A cool feature we dig is the Area Highlighter. You can draw a circle or shape around a desired area on a map, and the Realtor.com app will only populate listings in that area.
There’s also a handy tool called Area Scout. Enable this while you’re driving around town (in the passenger seat, of course) and Realtor.com will populate the map with nearby listings.
This app saves all of your past searches of locations too. In addition to the saved listings within your account, this is helpful to remember those homes for house-hunting drive-bys on the weekends.
