The numbers tell the story. In recent years, there has been no greater trend than the growth of mobile communication and technology, which has become the most important medium for information transfer in the world. Just consider some of these statistics:
In 2011, over 324 million mobile devices sold in the US, meaning that our mobile penetration rate increased to over 100 percent;
Ninety percent of homebuyers use the Internet to help find a home; and
At least seventy-five percent of them drive by a home as a result of their Internet search.
More and more, homebuyers want to engage and go online from mobile devices, not from desktops.
We want the portability of having these same functions on our mobile devices while in a neighborhood of our choice, to visualize the streets of that neighborhood on maps, and to pinpoint all available properties in the area.
Enter The Heritage Texas Properties Mobile App – Wherever Life Takes You, We’ll Be There!
If you own a smartphone and are looking for real estate, have we got an APP for you!
Information at your fingertips wherever you are, anywhere, anytime!
Heritage Texas Properties offers an innovative, user-friendly Mobile App which provides you with the ultimate in home search capabilities and forever changes the way you’ll search for properties.
Thanks to the GPS functionality available in today’s smartphones, this interactive application pinpoints your physical location and immediately returns detailed information about homes for sale or rent in your geographic area. Phones without this GPS functionality can still utilize the app to do a search by entering an address, city, community or zip code with the same results.
Available on nearly all mobile platforms, just search for “Heritage Texas Properties” in the app/play store (iPhone/Android/Blackberry) to download and instantly have the real estate information you need in the palm of your hand! In addition, you can text “heritage” to 87778 or scan the QR code below to download the app.
Here are just a few of the ways you can use our app in your home search:
Search based upon your own GPS location, or enter an address or zip code and get a list of available properties closest to that address.
See the available properties surrounding your location, expand search or refine according to price, distance, property type, or bedrooms and baths. Select properties you like to get details, view photos, contact an agent for information, or request an appointment.
Displays the address, price, bedroom and bath count, approximate square footage, estimated mortgage payments, taxes, and description, plus specific features. Save “favorites” or send them to family and friends via email, text, Facebook or Twitter.
Map listings to see their location on an interactive map. Zoom-in or zoom-out to get views of the property and surrounding area. Select a home on the map and see its information.
HTEX.mobi – Another Useful Mobile Tool
For those who need quick, but similar, information and don’t wish to download an App, or who do not utilize GPS functionality on their mobile device, Heritage Texas Properties has yet another useful mobile tool in htex.mobi – a service dedicated to answering one’s real estate needs, directly to their mobile phone. Like our Mobile App, htex.mobi allows real estate consumers to search a property and its details directly from their mobile phone, as well as find information about our office locations, agents, useful links and even a mortgage calculator.
The process is as simple as logging on to htex.mobi (no “www” needed here) from your phone and clicking on the appropriate link. The property search feature is a direct link to the Houston Association of Realtors MLS database with over 40,000 listings. If there is a “For Sale” sign in the front yard of a home, whether our sign or the sign of a competitor and you want to know more, htex.mobi can provide you with all of the listing information and more:
Click on property search. Enter the property address. The search tells you how many bedrooms and baths the house has; you can read a description about the listing and see photos of the inside. And if that gets you excited to see the listing, you can schedule a showing. All while you sit in front of the property.
