Smartphone users can now view Real Estate listings from 28 countries

Canadian home buyers and sellers can now access listings in 28 countries using their mobile phone devices, thanks to the latest innovation from Coldwell Banker®. A new international Coldwell Banker real estate interface includes listings from throughout Canada and the United States, as well as Australia, Mexico, Italy, Aruba and Colombia. Through this exclusive technology, a first for Canada, international property listings are accessible via a customized platform for iPhoneTM and BlackBerry® users.

When viewed on an iPhone, BlackBerry or other smartphone, the Coldwell Banker flagship Web site, www.coldwellbanker.com has a different look and feel, along with navigation specifically tailored for optimal viewing the mobile device. This includes property listings search and home value estimator functions. When a smartphone user accesses the site through his or her handset, the Coldwell Banker Web site automatically recognizes that it is being accessed by a mobile device and will serve up that specialized interface. Users do not need to download any special software to benefit from this enhancement to the Coldwell Banker mobile technology.

Now consumers in the home buying and selling process can easily search both domestically and internationally using their mobile devices. Now, surfing for listings has gone to a whole new level. In addition, smartphone users looking for real estate listings both domestically and internationally will be able to search for homes and utilize the brand’s home value estimator. In addition, consumers will be able to enter specific search criteria such as city, province or state, and price as well as optional filters including number of bedrooms and bathrooms. When a property is selected, users can view all of the specifications for that home and contact a sales representative directly.

It’s just one more way that Coldwell Banker technology blazes new trails to provide global consumers with listings anytime, anywhere. Want to know more about how to promote your listing or search for homes in exciting new ways? Contact your local Coldwell Banker real estate representative. You’ll be glad you called us first.
