Mobile application helps home search
Published 02/07/2010 | 05:00
Globrix.ie has launched a mobile-phone service which will make it easier for home hunters to stay in touch with news of properties becoming available in their preferred locations.
The service, known as m.globrix.ie, is designed for mobile phones and will help in the search for rentable and buyable properties.
A geo-location feature allows people to find properties for sale or rent within a set distance from the user's current location.
Users can search and browse for properties by keyword such as street, town or county. Users can also filter results by price, bedrooms and property type, and a map for each property is also displayed allowing users to locate the property they want instantly. Globrix.ie mobile allows users to contact agents directly to organise viewings and find further information.
This is the first in a series of innovative initiatives that will be released into the Irish market over the coming months.
Estate agents can list on www.globrix.ie for free.
Globrix.ie is part of the Independent Digital portfolio which is the digital arm of Independent News & Media Group.
