"Searching for homes is a mobile activity," says broker/owner Greg Fox, "No matter what you see on a computer screen, people still visit the homes. This mobile app allows you to tour a neighborhood and search for houses."
This is the first true Real Estate App released in South Central Kansas. The program fully integrates Smartphone or Pad technology, vs. a Thin App design that utilizes the device browser for data. This integration allows GPS and other features to function seamlessly for the consumer.
Smartphone sales in North America accounted for more than 50% of all cellular sales in the last 6 months. As this market continues to grow, the need for technology that allows consumer to have mobile access to Real Estate will become a consumer demand.
