San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
Trend Software Inc., dba PropertyMinder, a leading real estate technology provider, announced the launch of its mobile-optimized website designs which are now available on all mobile devices and platforms (iOS, Android, Windows phone, Blackberry) for real estate professionals. Keeping the needs of mobile users in mind, the layouts are designed for smaller screens and include IDX home searches. Most importantly, this allows real estate agents to lower the risk of losing mobile website traffic by catering to the tech-savvy homeseeker who expects instant information access.
Unlike the desktop version of a real estate website on a mobile device, mobile friendly designs are easy to read and seamlessly navigate on mobile devices. The responsive designs have been developed with the latest HTML5 coding, allowing the sites to be viewed in both portrait or landscape mode. Content is minimized to allow for quicker loading times and mobile detection technology will show the appropriate mobile or desktop version.
“It’s only a matter of time that mobile internet users will outnumber their desktop counterparts," Boris Gruzman, CEO of PropertyMinder said. "Helping our clients stay connected to their mobile users is our top objective this year. Mobile-optimized websites will help complement our existing Agent Branded, AgentView, and White Label mobile app solutions.”
Mobile friendly designs let home buyers quickly search for property listings on their smartphones and tablets. The agent is branded on every listing. Their photo, company logo, and contact information are displayed throughout the site so they can be immediately contacted. When a homeseeker uses the mobile IDX search, the nearest homes will load based on their GPS position. Alternatively, they may search by inputting their desired city, zip code, or MLS number.
Built-in contact and registration forms help improve lead capture. Every property listing displays vibrant property photos. Descriptions are in a clean layout and properties can be saved as a favorite for later review. Property listing information is derived from the local real estate Multiple Listing Service (MLS) which is always up to date and accurate.
With so many mobile platforms available and the popularity of on-the-go strategies in the real estate industry, real estate agents and homebuyers need the freedom and convenience to use websites that easily support any mobile technology. With the switch to HTML5, real estate companies, agents, and homebuyers have the freedom to use any mobile device on any platform, including smartphones and tablets, all with a clean user interface to ease adoption. With the cutting edge technology in the HTML5 release, PropertyMinder users will experience increased performance on all platforms.
