The new app actually has not bee
n merely upgrad ed.
It has been redesigned from scratch. Many of its features have been transformed
and the new version of the app offers a wholesome experience of property
search. Here is how one can effectively use the app for searching properties
for rental or purchase. For the sake of ease, let us consider take into account
the real estate sector of Chennai.
House search options
Let us assume that an end user is interested in flats for sale in Chennai. When this user starts using the app, the menu items offer distinct options for finding homes for purchase as well as rental. In case a person wants to search for PG accommodations and hostels, then there is a separate option that allows him/her to do so. One can also search for property agents using this app.
To search for flats, the end user merely has to type the name of the locality in Chennai where he/she is interested in purchasing a flat. The search results come up on the map of the locality and one can browse through and shortlist properties as per one’s own convenience. The end users are prompted to log into their housing accounts so that whatever properties they choose from the mobile device can also be viewed on other platforms as well.
Using filters effectively
The new app offers almost all the filter options that are available on the portal itself. For example, if the end user is looking for three room apartments in Chennai, then he/she can use the filters to opt for three room apartments only. In case one wants to see both independent homes and three room apartments, the filters allow them to do so. There are numerous other filter options available which allow an end user to find a
home according to his/her
budget, area, etc.
Find House related information
The app allows end users to find the specifications of each of the flats for sale in Chennai. These specifications include original photographs, details of amenities, details of
society and locality as well.
There is a Lifestyle Index which independently and objectively scores every
single property and is a useful tool to assess the lifestyle offered by each.
Find locality related information
The app has an option called “Local” which allows end users to see all kinds of amenities (Banks, ATMs, schools, shopping complexes, hospitals etc.) in the locality where the end user searches for property.
Find amenity related information
Within the property specifications, there is the locality map which only shows that property. Then the end user can see all amenities with respect to that property.
Housing.com app provides a seamless property search experience with features
especially created for handheld devices.
