We believe that every home search is a conversation.
HomeSpotter is beautiful, mobile-first home search, with built-in chat that makes collaboration fast, easy and fun.
We strive to provide an experience that’s easier and better for consumers and their agents. And we believe it can be done in a way that benefits the broker and MLS, too.
Agents and consumers have, for too long, had to copy, paste, email, and text property links all over the place as they went through their home search.
This didn't make much sense to us.
So, our idea: combine a great mobile property search experience with a familiar text message like interface so that working and communicating with others through a home search was simple.
Imagine texting property photo slideshows, not just links; enabling multiple conversations between your friends and family; even enabling chat between two agents that have full access to agent-only listing information.
Share, save, comment, chat ... messaging meets home search. 100% mobile, 100% better than the old way. That's what the next evolution of HomeSpotter is all about.
HomeSpotter works with many MLSs around North America - MLSs like California Regional MLS (CRMLS), NorthwestMLS (NWMLS), NorthstarMLS, Triangle MLS, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV), Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB), RealtyMobi, Heartland MLS, HiCentral / Honolulu Board of Realtors, Spokane Association of REALTORs, MetroList Services, BAREIS, Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches (RAPB / BeachesMLS), Saskatoon Region Association of Realtors, Association of Regina Realtors, Greater El Paso Association of Realtors, RMLS, Bay East Association of REALTORs, Contra Costa Association of REALTORs, East Bay Regional Data (EBRDI), MLS of Hilton Head Island, Southern Oregon MLS, Garden State MLS (GSMLS), and many others.
Improvements to the agent roster. Consumers can hide listings they don't want to see again on the map.
Ratings and Reviews
I love this app. Even though I am not a client I find it very entertaining. It is so cool to see all the homes that are up for sale. I love figuring out how to work it and you can message your agent. You can even look at homes in other countries or states. It shows you photos of the homes, prices, when they were built, and more. This app is just a great way to spend free time. And I have found many homes I like. This would be very helpful for finding a new home. I personally would rate it 6 out of 5 stars. ;) (if I could)
After using this app for a while I have grown to really like it. I like having the listing agent contact information and the ability to make contact directly from the app to clients as well. One feature I really loved was being able to look up supplements/disclosures on the fly. It saves time and paper to have it in your pocket or on a tablet vs printing it all off. Why did that go away? This is keeping it from getting 5 stars. Even scheduling a showing was easy, but this feature was huge. Please bring it back!
Slow to upload updates.
I would love to see photos updated more frequently. Agents often add photos later and I’ve watched where it takes weeks for the new photos to be added to the site. Also, there are often open houses listed on other sites that don’t appear here. Perhaps a Friday update or even Saturday morning would capture more of the late-comers and changes.
Otherwise, this is has been my favorite app to use with my clients.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
