No other Android application combines Redfin’s rich feature set with listing data directly from the Multiple Listing Services used by brokers. As a result Redfin for Android shows users all the homes for sale, in more detail than any other application can provide.
Redfin designed the Android application from the ground-up to support the most demanding home-buyers and real estate aficionados with features like:
- Full detail on every listing, with more than 20 fields for each home in the native application, and dozens more a tap away;
- Full-screen photos, for luscious detail on every bathroom and kitchen;
- Full price history, so users see how a listing’s price has changed since its debut;
- Photo upload, so users can add photos taken by the Android camera to a listing already on Redfin’s site;
- Agent Insights, which give Android users comments from Redfin agents with firsthand experience of a listing;
- Price-drop notifications, so users can follow a listing via Android and get email updates when its price drops or its status changes;
- Synchronization with Redfin’s website, so that favorite listings, crossed-out listings, private notes and home-tour schedules are the same on the device and on the web.
Delivering proprietary data about the home and its price history to registered users, Redfin for Android is already more powerful than Redfin for iPhone, the top-rated real estate app in the Apple iTunes store.
"Now Android users can enjoy the speed and power of a native application, and the convenience of full listing data on a mobile-optimized page. We built this application to be more powerful than any other Android real estate app – registered users can access a candy store of data on homes that we are not allowed to show the general public — because our business depends on guiding serious buyers through the entire process, whether browsing from a computer or out on tour, on your own or working with a Redfin agent."
