Real estate portal Lamudi launches app for Android


On June 24, Global real estate portal Lamudi rolled out its Android app in 28 countries. The app aims to help house hunters in the country find property on the go.

With more than 400,000 property listings across Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and Afica, the Lamudi app makes for a convenient, mobile platform  to buy, rent or sell real estate on an Android device. The launch of Lamudi’s Android app follows the successful release of the company’s iOS app in four (Pakistan, Mexico, Colombia and Morocco) countries last week.

Lamudi’s Co-Founder and Managing Director, Antonius Salis, said: “Android is the future of the smartphone market not just in the Philippines, but worldwide. For this reason, we have focused on rolling out the Android app to Lamudi’s 28 countries to reach the maximum number of users with our unique property platform. The Lamudi app is a world first because of the sheer number of countries it covers in the emerging markets. So whether you are looking to invest in property in Manila, buy a high-rise apartment in Jakarta or rent a villa in Jeddah, the Lamudi Android app helps you find your perfect property match.”

Jacqueline van den Ende, Managing Director of Lamudi Philippines, said: “It is no secret that house-hunting can be a stressful process. This app helps take the pressure out of searching for property, allowing you to look up homes for sale or rent at anytime and on any device.”

Both the Android and iOS apps feature a customized search function, which allows users to easily filter results by country. One key feature of the  app is the match alert function, which notifies users as soon as a property that meets their needs goes up for sale. Also, users can create a list of favorites, allowing them to bookmark properties for easy access to property information.

With the app, all listings are shown with high-quality photos, detailed property information, maps, and multiple contact details for property owners or agents. House-hunters can also share their favored properties with family and friends via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
