What can you use the app for?

Homes.com is a property search that assists users in the hunt for the perfect home. The site offers a broad range of results, including properties that are for sale as well as rentals. The user begins by supplying a location or zip code. Dropdown boxes let users filter by property type, number of beds, number of baths and a minimum and maximum price. Tabs also let users jump right to apartments, condos, townhouses and foreclosures. Real estate agents can register their client’s properties so they appear on Homes.com. An advanced search options tab is also available so users can further refine results by square footage, lot size and year built.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Homes.com has been mentioned all across the web. The service is simple but serves a valuable purpose for anyone looking at homes or rental properties. Most users note the different types of search filters offered by the site. Users can browse by year built, lot size or square footage rather than just home type, price and location. The site continues to make property searching much more manageable for modern families, individuals and professionals.

What are the differences to other apps?

Homes.com provide many of the same features that most real estate sites offer. Users will find a few extra perks that make the application even more appealing. The home values function lets users get feel for what similar homes in their area are going for while the mortgage connection page helps user determine what they can afford and how to go about getting financed for it.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Homes.com creates a friendly atmosphere that invites users to browse. The experience is never pushy or overwhelming. Users can explore at their leisure or perform regular searches to stay on top of homes recently put on the market or changes in price. Sleek buttons make it easy to move around so even the most inexperienced users can quickly master the site’s layout and features.

How does the registration process work?

New users who want to take advantage of all Homes.com has to offer should click the black “Join” button found in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. A pop up form appears and asks for first and last name, phone number, city or zip code and email address. Users can also sign in with their Facebook, Google or Yahoo account using the icons along the right side of the registration form. The user can navigate to their dashboard after completing a short questionnaire.

What does it cost to use the application?

Homes.com is available to all users at no cost. There are no subscription fees. Charging for access would only cause most users to go elsewhere. There are many free real estate searches available on the web. Considering that most people will be spending thousands on a new home or hundreds on a rental, it would seem unreasonable to require a subscription fee. Homes.com is priced right where it should be to give users a good value for their time.

Homes.com is ideal for anyone who plans on buying, selling or renting a property anytime in the future. Users can compare the value of their home to the values of nearby properties that are similar or search for available locations in a specific city.
