13 real estate applications for Android phones

For years, the cell phone darling has been iPhone, but between February and May of this year, the market share of all smartphone platforms (including Apple) declined. All platforms but Google, that is, which rose 4%.

According to ComScore:

For any marketer (real estate or otherwise) to remain relevant, they must know the growing trends which we’ve seen most fail to do. The tech world continues to be Mac fanboys, yet consumers are slowly diversifying their choice in smartphones as shown by the last six months alone, and Google is coming out a clear winner.

Unfortunately, the applications available for consumers to search real estate are quite limited. The app library has a variety of obscure local real estate search apps, but national brokers and search portals are surprisingly lacking as are quality calculators and the like.

Here are 13 real estate search applications for Android phones:

Do you think the quest for all brokerages to be in all places at all times is unwise, or do you think it is worth the investment to be where consumers are trending?

    Brokerages need to position themselves to have their listings found by the consumer. Technology is changing so fast that it’s difficult to choose the perfect platform and application. As far as technology is concerned, less is not more….More and more buyers are shopping with their smart phones while driving through neighborhoods and we want them to call us, regardless of who has a house listed.

    I’ve used nearly all the ones on this list, and unfortunately haven’t had very good luck finding active listings with any of them. Maybe location based search works better on the iPhone.

    FYI – there are only 12 apps on the list 🙂

    Some of my buyer clients have a few of these on their smartphones and, since they are free, then they decide to use ’em all.

    Making sure that your listings are complete with plenty of photos makes your listing much more interesting to these “visual consumers”. Bad pics and you are sunk.

    12 not 13, now that’s funny!

    Am still awaiting the Redfin app for the Droid. Charlie Pitkin’s add of “Karl’s Mortgage Calculator” makes a good #13.

    real estate and phone dealing are same. As you know that is is phone that make a dealer famous by name and numbers. most on buyer and seller start deal by phone after that they meet face to face. real estate isn’t miner topic that can be ignored and………….
