Homesnap Releases Android Version of Popular Real Estate Mobile App

Only Real Estate App to Make Real Estate Engaging, Social, Fun

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Homesnap today announced that its popular Homesnap app is now available for Android. This announcement comes on the heels of the release of Homesnap's first-ever mobile real estate platform. The new platform, with native apps for iPhone, iPad and Android, integrates unrivaled big data, simple home search and a built-in social graph with the magic and fun of Homesnap's signature feature, which lets consumers snap a picture of any home to find out all about it.

Other real estate apps, like Redfin, Zillow and Trulia, are lite versions of their search-based home listing web sites. Homesnap is unique, built specifically for mobile users in the real world -- it is home discovery, not just search. Homesnap is built for casual browsers and serious buyers alike. Additionally, Homesnap provides powerful tools that allow real estate agents to interact with current clients and attract new ones. The app brings together an unmatched blend of real estate big data -- from tax records to school boundaries to complete MLS data, plus tens of millions of photos -- to give consumers all the information they want on any home, right from the curb.

Like Homesnap's successful iPhone and iPad apps, the new Android version is built around an iconic mobile feature -- just by taking a picture, users can instantly identify any home, get its value, bedrooms, baths, square footage, lot size, last sale date and price, schools, taxes and more. A new aerial map feature, "Explore," allows consumers to browse homes visually, guided by homes others have snapped, right down to a specific block and every home on it. Homesnap will develop all three mobile platforms with consistent features moving forward.

Homesnap is the only app making homes and home buying a social experience, mirroring the way people search for and buy homes. Users can easily add friends from Facebook, Twitter or their smartphone's address book, making it simple to trade snaps, comments and recommendations with friends, family, agents and extended social communities much as they do today in the real world. Real estate agents can use Homesnap to track the homes their clients snap, recommend homes they might like, and trade comments about specific homes. Clients can see their agent's recommendations, give their reaction, and plan home tours, including their social community in the process.

"Homesnap is the only app that understands how people find and buy homes and aids them in their journey," said Homesnap co-founder and CEO, Guy Wolcott. "By bringing Homesnap to all major mobile platforms, we are out to change the real estate ecosystem -- meeting the demand of an increasingly mobile generation, making real estate engaging, useful, and fun."
