New iPhone app launched for “property addicts and nosey neighbours alike”




.

A new iPhone app has been launched by property website Zoopla.co.uk. Designed for property consumers, it has been deemed the “ultimate resource for the residential property market”.

The free mobile app allows users to view available property listings, as well as sold price data, current value estimates and other local market information.

An extension of the Zoopla website, the app includes instant value estimates of all 27 million UK homes.
iPhone enthusiast and Head of Bridging at United Trust Bank, Alan Margolis, was quick to download the app and described it as ‘impressive’.
When asked whether he believed Zoopla’s latest offering would prove useful to the bridging industry he said: “Many lenders probably use Zoopla and other sites like it already, and of course most of our work is done from desk tops, so I can't see that the App per se is that useful for us office bound workers.
“However, I am sure it will prove useful for valuers when they are out and about looking at properties for lenders.”
Making use of Augmented Reality technology, the app displays images of a property along with any relevant information, such as the current asking price or current value estimate via the camera view.
With almost half a million properties listed for sale or rent, over 15 million sold house prices displayed and instant value estimates on each of the 27 million homes in the country, Zoopla believe the iPhone will be “welcomed by property addicts and nosey neighbours alike.”
