A good app should not be complicated. Viewing the images of the houses should also be easy. The app should allow the user to make contact with the seller, providing a feature for inputting contact details. If the seller has any discount to offer on the house, and commission to the brokers, the app should enable the seller to do so.
The app should have a search button where buyers look for houses they wish to buy. A good app allows the user to filter the search results using desired keywords such as price, location, etc. Once the search results are available, it should also save the results for easier access in case the app user want to refer to the open listings of the previous search again. The app should allow the sellers to include necessary details such as the number of rooms, size of the rooms among others. This will allow the prospective buyer to have an idea of the kind of house to buy.
The process of uploading pictures should be easy and the app should have a limit of the size of the image to be uploaded. Pages do not open easily when the users upload bulky images.
The app should be compatible with several devices and operating systems to allow several people access it. Prospective buyers and sellers can install the app on their mobile phones, tablets, or any smart gadget. It should always remain up-to-date, and at the same time, allow the users to be able to download and install the updates with ease. The home app should be free to download and install, without charging the user any cash.
The graphical user interface should be easy to use so that several home buyers and sellers can be able to use it. Every home buyer want to log into the app, see a number of houses that interests him and contact the seller, without spending so much time. Brokers will also want an app where they can refer or sell a house on behalf of the homeowner and get their commission without encountering too many difficulties with the app. If the broker has been paid the commission and the buyer decides not to proceed with the sale, the app should state the refund, mostly a 50% commission refund.
