There’s very little that smartphones can’t do; whether that’s doing your weekly shopping, enabling you to find the answer to any question that pops into your head, or facilitating your home search, they’ve got it covered.

With that being said, how exactly do you find a new home using your mobile phone? We have the answer!

Quick Search

If you’re in an area that you like the look of and want to know if any properties are up for rent, or sale, then a quick mobile search is great for giving you the information you need!

It can also let you know if the amenities you need are readily available in the area, such as schools, easy transport links and job opportunities.

Mobile Websites

The majority of companies, including Real Estate Agents, will have their websites optimized for mobile phones, so if you’re out and about and fancy checking up on your local agent’s website, you can!

Finding a home on your mobile like this is simple, convenient, and saves you plenty of time, especially if you’re the type of person who never has enough time in their day.

Apps

Even more streamlined than mobile websites are applications; and many of the larger websites used for searching for new homes have an app. Right Move and Zoopla in the UK both have apps for iOS and Android, as well as Zillow, Redfin and Homelight in the US.

You can perform a quick search and save it, and check back whenever is convenient for you to see newly posted properties. Between apps, mobile searches and mobile websites, we think apps are the most time efficient and convenient way to look for a new home on your mobile.

Benefits

There are a few benefits of home searching on your mobile rather than a desktop, or on paper. Here are a few:

  • It saves a load of time, especially in comparison to searching through newspapers and the like.
  • It’s incredibly convenient. You can just whip out your phone and have a quick look any time, anywhere. There’s no need to set up your computer or bust out a newspaper.
  • The process is very streamlined, especially when using apps.
  • Using your mobile phone to search for a new home makes it simply to show others. You can just send them a link, or hand over your phone. Simple.
