Downloading a real estate app to search for homes and estates

    If you are anything like me, I don’t download every app in the marketplace. In fact, I’m pretty stingy with Home searching without an appthe apps that I do download. Every once in awhile, I look at my phone and other mobile devices to do an “App House Cleaning”.

    I delete those apps that I have not used, but downloaded, because I thought it was a “good idea” at the time.

    Apps have the ability to track what you are doing within themselves. That does not sit well with me. However, the internet and websites do a great job at this too. That is why I always recommend a local site and system that has MLS, multiple listing service, access and is owned by a single party. Someone that can be held accountable if you start being harassed…

    SCVnest and SCV661 are systems which are directly connected to the local Multiple Listing Service.

    We built them so a Real Estate home search app would not need to be downloaded to see the latest real estate listings that are for sale. 

    We had an app once – Beautiful like those offered by – – Zillow – Trulia and Redfin. I found with the new technology and HTML 5 applications, having an app to search for homes was not necessary for the savvy and exacting methods in which people are searching online for homes.

    Some of those sites I mentioned are Syndication websites. Although, they are used by a lot of people for finding homes, they are in business because of selling your personal and private information to real estate agents willing to pay for it. And Folks – their Businesses are Booming!


    The Real Estate Syndication websites are not directly connected to the Multiple Listing Service. You are missing listings and homes for sale. You are also seeing others, appearing as if for sale, which are not for sale!

    To search for real estate listings for sale, you do not need to download anything onto your phone. You will see the same updates and information contained on an app, without having to download one.

    Our real estate search sites adjust to the speed of your device. They, as an app does, require an internet connection. After you have your internet connection and access our Home Search Sites, you will be viewing the listings which are for sale on a platform that is Non App Driven.

    Our home search systems are robust and require no learning curve. You enter in the address, zip code, mls number, city, enter some home equipment parameters, if you desire, and will see the latest real estate listings for sale immediately.

    Our HTML 5 websites are GPS equipped and enabled. If you want to search for homes nearby your location, you can also enable this feature!

    Our system will also email you, if you desire, the newest real estate listings fitting your criteria immediately. That occurs at the same time the local Real Estate agents are notified of their existence. Just after they are entered into the Multiple Listing Service within each Board of Realtors.

    To me, IMHO, this is the way to go. I have asked many of our clients and they are happy we have built our Home Searching websites in a responsive nature, thereby adjusting to the user’s interface.

    Cell Phone, Tablet, or Laptop – they all work seamlessly to provide you with the best real estate search experience without you needing to tie up space on your mobile device by having to download an app.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
