Well, I was going to write a post about the Big Zillow Blackberry Launch today but thanks to Sara, I don’t have to now. This is awesome news and definitely ReBlog worthy. I just did a Mobile Real Estate Webinar this morning and the question came up (as it always does) “When will you have your app for Blackberry?“
WOOHOO! The answer to that question gets answered today. Kudos to the team behind the scenes that has worked hard to develop and launch this app making Mobile Real Estate now available for all our BlackBerry friends too. Thanks for posting this Sara, you Rock! 🙂
When I talk to agents about Zillow’s mobile apps– it is inevitable that the question comes up… “What about an app for the Blackberry?”. I know a lot of agents use a Blackbery, I myself only recently switchedover to Droid.
Now with the launch of the Zillow Blackberry App, we have 90% smartphone user coverage to assist people with home shopping anytime, and anywhere when utilizing the GPS capablities on the app.
Zillow Mobile apps are used 6.5 million times each month, with more than 23 million visits to home detail pages. That’s nearly 9 home views every single second! Want to know how fast mobile is exploding? In January of this year, we were tracking at 6 homes viewed every second. This growth amazes me! And it isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
The location-based Zillow BlackBerry App uses GPS technology to find and follow users on an aerial map, homes for sale, homes for rent, Make Me Move listingsand recently sold data on the homes around them. Additional features on the Zillow BlackBerry App include:
- Multiple search filters that include price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and other valuable home-related information.
- Homes viewable on a map with high-resolution satellite and street view.
- Home search by location or by typing in a city, ZIP code or address.
- Full-screen color photos of homes.
Take a quick tour of the app:
