The app provides the perfect platform for house-hunters to rent, buy or sell property on the go. A key feature of the Lamudi app is its customised search function, which allows users to easily switch between the 27 countries available in the app.
The app also provides match alerts, with users receiving a notification as soon as a property that suits their needs hits the market. House-hunters can bookmark their favourite properties to access at any time and on any device.
All listings on the app feature high-quality photo galleries, detailed property information, maps, and multiple contact details for property owners or agents. Users can also share their favourite properties with family and friends via Facebook, Twitter or email.
