We’ve just released the latest version of our iPhone for Portland real estate. You can download it from the iTunes here or search Turner Realtors in the App Store.
This is the first mention of the app as I wasn’t happy with the first version and I’ll be the first to admit that it could be better than it is. Ultimately there is a question as to whether buyers want to use an iPhone as a real estate tool? This version has an MLS search function that is connected to the Turner Realtors search property search engine. It will return results for all of the listings in RMLS but it is pretty basic at this point but will get the job done.
Honestly, the Zillow app has a more advanced search tool than ours as it is able to utilize the gps function but it doesn’t appear to have all listings posted to it. Either way, I think the apps are mostly just for fun and basic information. Perhaps that will change as the technolgy matures.
