Hutbay.com, a Nigerian real estate marketplace dedicated to helping home-owners, home buyers, sellers, renters, real estate professionals and property managers find and share vital information about homes and real estate has today released an update of its Windows Phone 8 app in a move to put Nigeria’s real estate at the fingertips of the growing mobile population.
The Windows Phone app which works with Windows Phone 7.5 and 8 enables search for properties by city or state, viewing detailed information on homes including photos, ability to contact agents by email or call, refer a property to a friend easily with little effort.
Launched last year August by Olatunji Owolabi and Popoola Oluwaseun, Hutbay.com says it is dedicated to helping property hunters and homeowners find and share vital information about homes and real estate. Hutbay aims to put real estate in top cities and real estate in top states at its fingertips along with thousands of homes in smaller cities and towns. Its listings are submitted directly by agents.
The team say the new update has a “faster and intuitive way of viewing all properties available for sale and for rent in a particular area. Users can also make custom search tailored to their preference or based on selected parameters (e.g. property type, number of bedrooms, maximum price etc). Navigation to each property details (where you can view more information and photos, call or drop the agent in charge of the property a note, share the property with family, friends, and professionals via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and even SMS) is made faster.”
The update will help users create property alerts, send real estate related enquiries to agents and get feedback.
