If the user knows what they are looking for it is a good idea to refine the search through the filter, otherwise their screen will be filled with every rental and sale available. When that is done the user will have the option of zooming in their gps location or scroll across the map looking for a home anywhere within reason.

Once the user decides on a home they wish to look into they can select the property and see further information available on it. The information is rather expansive, ranging from pictures and a description of the property, to charts of its value over time and a list of its previous sales. If the home is to the buyers’ liking, they can contact the seller through the app itself and set up further negotiations.
