Home Search Technology
Although there is no individual person given credit for creating the Internet, history shows us that the concept is not as new as we would think. Nikola Tesla dreamed of a ‘world wireless system’ and other visionaries like Paul Otlet brainstormed the idea of searchable storage systems predominantly for books and media in the 30s and 40s. Today we use the internet for countless reasons, including housing searches for 95% of buyers in 2018, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Annual Survey. The results also noted that 50% of buyers found their eventual home online.
Homeowners Financial Group believes that technology can serve a major purpose in the homebuying process by coupling technology with experienced professionals on the Real Estate and Mortgage side of the transaction. Powered by MobilityRE, we now offer our clients a free Home Search App that can be used on any mobile device. Connected to the MLS in real time, you can search your desired area for properties and swipe through photos to check out the must-have kitchen or backyard. The Alert function notifies you instantly when a new listing hits the market that matches your dream home criteria, enabling you to be first to make an offer.
Being a relationship-centric Lender, our Home Search app keeps you connected to the professionals guiding you through the process of your home purchase. The NAR’s 2018 survey reported that 86% of all buyers used a real estate agent, and we are happy to report that it only takes a single tap in the app to instantly request a property showing. It is also a quick tap to apply online and get prequalified, so have your Lender start working for you!
Leveraging technology can simplify your home search, and leveraging our Licensed Mortgage Professionals can provide the human touch needed to explore the best mortgage financing options for you.
