The free app, with Champion’s “X-Ray VisionSM,”combines GPS technology and information that is updated every 15 minutes to display the most current properties in the Multiple Listing Service.
Available for the iPhone, iPad, and Droid, the Champion Realty App can be downloaded at no cost from the Apple App Store or at ChampionRealtyApp.com.The app shows properties within one mile of your location and augments the information with images and facts. Among key features of the app:
· X-Ray VisionSM scans the neighborhood as you hold your phone or iPad at eye level and rotate, so the display changes to show listings in the direction you are facing. Tap the thumbnail on your screen to see more details about a listing and view photos from inside the home.
· Location Tool places your current location in the center of a map on your screen and shows where nearby properties are found.
· Lasso Tool lets you draw a defined area with your finger and see all listings in the area you select.
· Map view shows all listings for an area and, with the pinch or slide of a finger, presents larger views and more information.
· Additional views include satellite view, single column with a listing’s picture, price, square footage and other statistics, and multiple column view.
· Large, high-resolution photos from inside the home show layouts and features.
“Champion always strives to stay ahead of the curve, and we are really excited to be the first company offering this tool in Maryland,” said Jon Coile, CEO of Champion Realty. “While you’re sitting in front of a house, you can pull up details and photos in real time—or you can look at other neighborhoods of interest. This app makes it easy for people to find properties, which benefits buyers, sellers and real estate agents.”
