A new real estate app specifically made for the Santa Barbara market has hit the app store for both Andriod and iPhone. Homestack is a Southern California based technology company that developed the app called “Homes in Santa Barbara.” Their new, free app is designed to help buyers and sellers stay up to date on the real estate market in the greater Santa Barbara area.
“It’s like having the information real estate agents have, right at your fingertips,” say the app developers.
The app has a direct connection to the Santa Barbara Multiple Listing Service and can ensure accurate market data in real time. This feature is what sets it apart from other mainstream home searching apps in the market. The app is very easy to use even for the real estate novice. In the app, you can browse active, pending and closed listings and view a comprehensive open house directory.
“In the past, buyers have had to use a number of outlets from newspapers to the web to access open house information. With the app, all the opens are listed in one place, which is super convenient when looking for a home,” state the developers.
For those who intend to sell, the app can be a useful for browsing recently closed listings and understanding local market value. Sellers can even inquire to find out what their home is worth. The app pulls from the Santa Barbara County MLS, the trusted source for buying and selling homes in the greater Santa Barbara area.
For those buying homes, the app acts as a personalized concierge. It has a “smart search” function that can help buyers build a search around their price point, location and preferences. Buyers can mark their favorites, write notes about the property, share the listings with others, and keep their home search organized. It is also simple to set up a showing. Buyers can arrange this through a one-click process connecting through phone, email or text with an agent. The app even includes an advanced mortgage calculator. The app browses homes in Santa Barbara, Montecito, Goleta, Carpinteria, Santa Ynez and surrounding areas.
