Real estate portal helps realty property search on mobile

Maxheap Technologies Pvt Ltd, which runs real estate and apartment management portal CommonFloor.com, has launched augmented reality (AR)-based search for properties and apartments. Named CommonFloor Real Estate, the app also enables GPS (global positioning system)-based properties search.

The company claimed that the app extends many features available on its website to mobile devices and links them with GPS to make the search less time consuming and hassle free. Using AR view, a user can point his phone in any direction and the app will automatically detect available properties in that direction in a specified kilometre range.

This is beneficial when a user is out on the street searching for relevant properties in the area. The property seeker can filter them according to their needs on mobile. They can then directly contact the owners/dealers who have posted the listing and also gather details like size, cost etc. The map or GPS-based search feature helps users to identify properties around their current location.

Users can also move the map to identify other nearby properties such as a particular school, work place or any other landmark.

A user can filter properties and projects on the basis of buying/renting, city, location within the city, type of property (apartment/villa/independent house/row house/plot), number of rooms, budget as well as size in sq. ft. After narrowing down on relevant properties, users can find out the details about each property, including the amenities available, approvals issued by local authorities, banks that will issue loans for purchase and floor plans.
