Ratings and Reviews
Great app very informative, helpful to know status of sales especially if the property has already accepted an offer- which Zillow does not tell you. Wish there was an area for personal notes we could individually write as reminders to ourselves that would be seen just within our own login pages. Or a “thumbs down or X or no” button to remind us not to open up the page we opened up before (maybe just viewable to ourselves). Would be helpful even if we can see that we have viewed it already. Also wish there was a button for all the open houses that are available or upcoming weekends/days. Even better if they could be plotted on a map so it could help with planning since most open houses are on weekends for only 2 hours and all at the same time. Just wish lists but otherwise a great app.

Hi mganda, we appreciate your feedback and your suggestions. We'll add your idea to our list of potential enhancements. The listings that you've viewed will be colored light red on the listing pin and on the border around the listing price. The listings that you haven't reviewed yet will be bright red. If you're looking at list view, there will also be a banner that states 'Viewed.' You can turn on open houses by tapping 'Filter' in the upper right, then tap the toggle on for 'Open Houses Only.'
Usually my go-to but its glitchy
This has the best general layout and interface of any of the house hunter apps. Just wish a couple things were different. Information not on the website version is not here, and vice versa. Second, most annoyingly the map pins have TERRIBLE touch sensitivity. I try to select one pin on the map and it chooses a house not even close to what I selected. Try to select the pin again, and the displayed house jumps to another random pin I didn’t select. Try again, and it usually goes back to the first house, and back and forth. Just refuses to select and display the ACTUAL house I was selecting from the map. And finally, the map is slow to update listings after filtering. It will say X amount of houses met the filters, but then the map doesn’t display that. Have to zoom in and out of the map a few times to get it to update and display the correct listings. I do like the new green shading for schools. The previous colors made it seem like there were few good schools anywhere. I take school ratings with a grain of salt like that anyways.
Many missing features
The accuracy of data in this app is awful. As a former Realtor, I know that the company called MLS (Multiple Listing Service) requires all Realtors to UPDATE all listings with current status (option, contingent, pending, etc.) within a certain time frame. Many Realtors do NOT do this, because they are “farming for Buyers.” When a Buyer is searching, there is absolutely no way to determine if a property is actually still available. If you are looking to relocate, the lack of timely reporting is frustrating. It is worthless to call every Realtor to find out if the property is still available. Also, when you have “viewed” a listing, there used to be the words “viewed” on the listing within this app. When you are looking at 20-30 properties in a county, it gets confusing to not be able to remember what you have previously looked at, and maybe bypassed for a reason. The “heart” ❤️ feature is nice,,but again...totally worthless when the listings is not updated to reflect proper status. If the data in this app is updated every 15 minutes, and actual property status is missing, then the Realtors are playing the system.

Hi SuzyQDallas, we appreciate you updating your review. If there are any listings that you've seen that have the incorrect status, we'd like to look into them further. Please provide us with that information by contacting us here: email@example.com.
