Housing Hunting Made Easier

Article excerpt

Byline: Alice Bradley

IF YOU'RE mid-house-hunt, there's every chance you're an exhausted, scattered and slightly frustrated version of your former self.

Your weekend schedule is chock full of OFIs, auctions or trying to win over landlords.

But mobile technology has changed the way we look for houses - for the better.

Real estate apps can streamline the process, consolidating home details and alerting you when new listings pop up in your shortlisted areas.

Here are our tips for house hunting on the go.

1. Get the app, now with push notifications

First things first. Jam-packed open for inspections leave no time for fumbling around with handwritten lists that can easily get lost in the rush to get from Property A to Property B.

More than four and half million Australians are already using the app. Don't get left behind.

By enabling push notifications on your realestate.com .au app, you'll never miss out on that dream home again.

Forget checking your email or realestate.com.au 50 times a day to find out about new properties appearing in your search.

With push notifications, we do the hard work for you.

Getting push notifications is easy, all you need to do is start searching for property.

Save any search that you check frequently by clicking the star icon next to the search box.

If you're not already signed into your realestate.com.au account, you'll need to do that.

Notifications will be tallied up at 6pm everyday, so you can check in on your favourite properties on your way home from work.

It's just another way to bring you closer to the most comprehensive list of properties on the web.

2. Personalise your search

By providing a little bit of information from the outset - what suburbs you're interested in and the price range you want to stick to - your real estate.com.au account will be your best friend.

It will email you about auctions and OFIs. It will provide a map detailing your route to get to them. It will let you know when new listings pop up. And, it will tell you all this from whichever device you have on hand at the time.

Get email reminders to your phone about auctions, OFIs and new listings. …
