New apps ease home-searching process

A number of new apps have come out allowing for on-the-go property searches in Canada. One the latest is offered by Chicago-based ForSaleByOwner.com, which includes U.S. and Canadian properties.

The app, unveiled this week, allows users to search nearby listings when they are in certain neighbourhoods, highlight open houses, and get notifications of price reductions, among other features.

“Today’s buyers want details about a house immediately,” said Eddie Tyner, general manager of ForSaleByOwner.com. “They don’t want to wait to get back to their computers – and why should they?”

The Financial Post this week also featured a number of useful apps for homebuyers, including Realtor.ca, Zoocasa, Dream Home, MoveTools, and PropertyGuys.com.
