by Taylor Selcke There seems to be an app for everything local these days. You can search stores, restaurants, movies, gyms, and now—homes. New for Androids and iPhones, the Edina Realty Property Search allows its users to view listings on every home for sale in the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota, and western Wisconsin. All you have to do is pop in the city, zip code, or style of home you’re looking for and—bam!—color photos and complete property information are at your fingertips. For those who don't want to miss a beat, this makes it easy to track homes the instant they hit the market and look up stats on those "For Sale signs" while cruising through neighborhoods.
“Mobile Internet usage is quickly becoming the norm and is expected to bypass desktop Internet usage within a year or two,” says Bob Peltier, president and CEO of Edina Realty Home Services. “Our agents and customers can be confident that we’re not just keeping up with the latest mobile apps; we’re leading the marketplace with the latest and greatest mobile property search tools.” In addition to viewing properties, you can also share your favorites with friends and family via social media and view realtor profiles on the easy-to-navigate interface. But the best part? It's completely free. Welcome to house hunting on the go.
