Finding the right home isn't always as easy or as fun as it should be. In years gone by, it was a stressful process of scouting out the best realtors and travelling far and wide for the best place. Now thanks to the wonders of iPads and real estate search engine Trulia, budding homeowners can do everything from the comfort of their sofa if they so wish with the Trulia Real Estate Search app.
Users can simply and easily search for homes that are for sale or for rent. Full-screen interactive maps are on offer as well as a plethora of neighbourhood specific details and high resolution photos. It's possible to search homes via GPS or location entry and recently sold places are also easily viewed for research or simply out of curiosity.
All the vital information can be organised neatly with sorting functionality covering everything from price to age, number of bedrooms and bathrooms.
Map tools offer up some very useful features for those looking for a home rather than just a house. There's community information such as restaurants, shopping areas and gas stations to give users a rough idea of what to expect from a prospective area.
Once the ideal home is made apparent through a search, users can then contact the listing agent through the app, saving hassle. Users can even share a prospective house with friends for a second opinion.
Trulia makes for a really attractive way of searching for homes. It's simple to look through offering high resolution photos on one half of the screen with the other half covering the descriptive elements as well as the ever useful price history too. Whether looking for a new family home or simply checking out dream apartments, Trulia is a great way of looking around the local vicinity.
Trulia Real Estate Search is available now for the iPad and it's a free download.
