Point and Click: New Mobile App from Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Area Leaders Simplifies the Twin Cities Home-Search Process

  (November 25, 2011)

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) November 25, 2011

The real estate search has gone high-tech. Certainly, its been heading that way for years, as people rely on their computers and mobile devices to find properties. But a new mobile Twin Cities real estate app takes the technology one step further, while at the same time harkening back to the days when finding a place to live meant getting in the car and covering ground.

The new mobile real estate app, available from Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Area Leaders to both iPad and iPhone users, takes the search for Minneapolis and St. Paul area single-family homes to places its never gone before. Thats due in large part to a feature called HomeSpotter from, which leverages augmented reality technology and allows people to access information simply by pointing their iPad or iPhone.

Searching for real estate used to mean spending the afternoon in the car, hoping to stumble across a For Sale sign in a desirable neighborhood, said Andy Asbury, broker/owner of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Area Leaders. This new mobile app simplifies the process because it allows users to simply point their iPad or iPhone down a street theyre interested in. Then it automatically pulls up information on all the homes available for sale.

With HomeSpotter, users also can point their iPad or iPhone at individual homes or buildings theyre interested in. The technology works by overlaying property information on the iPad or iPhones camera feed. It generates all the pertinent information home-buyers need price, square footage, and number of bedrooms and bathrooms, for example and also includes a radar feature that shows them to see properties for sale on other streets in the area. The available properties are shown on screen as icons, and users can tap on them to learn more about them.

The app, available for free download from the iTunes Store, also includes traditional functions that allow users to search for available real estate via parameters such as location and price.
