A Smartphone App For Searching Potential Halifax Real Estate

A new Home Finder smartphone app was released by Halifax today, which provides users a new method for looking into property information over their Android or iPhone devices. It’s a new way to check for Halifax real estate properties, which are now made easier to find.

According to a customer survey done by Rightmove, mobile platforms are now being used by property companies, making it easy for respondents to find their desired properties.

House hunters are finding it easy to use this method. Whenever they see a property on sale, they will know the details instantly. This is the main purpose of Rightmove’s smartphone app to find the property they need using modern technology.


Grapple developed the Halifax Home Finder, which is simple to use and appealing. These are actually the key elements that developers should remember when innovating a real estate app.

On its first page are a search tool, access to your chosen properties, mortgage calculator, and a guide to the home purchasing process.

A quick search will bring out all your selected properties in a list or displayed map, which then can be filtered by the number of rooms, price and other criteria.

It details property images, sales history and repayment calculator, which can be accessed to check if you can really afford it.

Property Notes

Once you have selected from among the Halifax real estate properties to view, the app will allow you to write down notes about the property you wish to search around.

It’s even possible to capture property pictures and add ratings up to five for the different criteria. All details to include the pictures will be emailed as a PDF and can be printed.

Augmented Reality

This is where the app is different from all other property apps. Aside from searching for properties on the map, the home finder can allow you to view the vicinity using a camera.

So, for instance, if you are walking around Nova Scotia and want to know properties on sale in the area, you just have to hold your phone and see how it is signaled on screen.

The results from checking out Halifax real estate can be filtered corresponding to its price, how near it is to local schools and availability of transport facilities.
