Renting a home made faster through mobile!
The ease, comfort and speed of Internet are being experienced in all spheres of life. At a click of mouse, people get every comfort at home. From grocery needs to property purchases, every thing is available online. This comfort increases manifold when it can be experienced on the move. A real estate mobile site allows customers to easily access prime properties within their city and budget with additional details like nearby facilities, directions, neighborhood, etc. on the move.
Recently, Niket Kohli, employed with an MNC in Gurgaon, relocated from Ahmedabad to Delhi. Being new to the capital, he had to figure out a lot of things; however, one of his major concerns was to find a rented accommodation for himself and his family. He started off with the traditional way of visiting real estate brokers and agents within the shortlisted areas. To his dismay, he could only visit three or four properties in the entire week based on whatever an agent had to offer. Each agent had different set of properties in different areas, hence a lot of time was wasted traveling to the different locations at different time.
Interestingly, Niket landed a job in less time when compared to what it took him for looking for a home. He says, “It was a colleague who suggested that I should look for properties on the Makaan.com’s mobile site”. Based on the discussion in office, on a fine Saturday morning Niket drove down to Gurgaon to look for an apartment of his choice. He reached for his smartphone and searched for nearby rented accommodations. On entering his requirements i.e. a 2BHK apartment and his budget of 25-30 K, he got over 3212 apartments that were available for rent. Subsequently, he contacted 5 agents through his phone. As he was new to the city and was not very familiar with the areas, the feature to see the properties on the map view came in really handy. He also got the driving directions (from his office) to the properties just by entering a few basic details. The site also helped Niket with nearby facilities like school for his children, metro and bus stations for local commute, hospitals, ATM, restaurants etc. for the shortlisted properties.
Sharing his contentment he says, “I shifted from the hotel to my rented home within six days of logging onto Makaan.com Mobile site. The site made my property search experience really hassle free and helped me choose the property which best suited my needs. Moreover, I could trust the property information provided by the site as it did not have any ulterior motive of earnings attached to itself. In the coming months I’ll want to buy a property in Delhi; however, with the availability of Makaan.com Mobile site, I am sure that I will not have to invest months in the process.”
The various advantages of searching properties on the mobile are:
- Search property from anywhere while on the move from your smartphone.
- Sea available properties on map in any city/location.
- Get directions to different properties.
- Review neighborhood and commute options while shortlisting a property.
- Browse photos of the property.
- Find and contact the property owner immediately or save the details for a later time.
The mobile site’s innovative features, design and gesture support made it an extremely useful tool for Niket throughout his property needs. Combinations of different filters make the site easily accessible. With the boom of Smart Phones, the website is a bridge between the customer and his/her real estate needs with less time consumption. The mobile site is turning up to be a boost for all individuals; it is a one stop property search.
