Today, tech startup CoopSnoop announced the unveiling of an open public beta for its digital real estate search platform. After adding a simple bookmarklet users can “Snoop” listings on over 800 real estate websites. The “Snoops,” as they are known, from diverse sites are stored in a central workspace where they can be tagged, rated, commented on and organized. Users can create teams and invite others such as spouses, roommates, parents, friends or real estate agents to collaborate, share Snoops,comments and view each other's ratings.
CoopSnoop has also rolled out a tool for users to easily add listings to a "route" and generate detailed directions as well as a printable and shareable map which can then be used for a day of house hunting.
The company also announced the availability of free native apps for iOS and Android devices that allow users to collaborate on the go. When visiting a home users can easily add photos that are automatically uploaded to the platform for later viewing or for collaborators to see.
"The platform is intended to ease the pain and help simplify the process of finding and choosing a new home," says co-founder Jay Erickson. "People often use spreadsheets, standard bookmarks, accounts on multiple sites, or lengthy email chains which bring unnecessary frustration and chaos to a process that can be exciting, efficient and fun. We also feel it is a great tool for agents to share listings with their clients and meet them in a place where consumers are already doing their own searches and work to vet new homes."
The company is currently soliciting and listening to feedback from the beta closely as it continually improves the platform and hones the feature set for its website and mobile apps.
