Village Properties Mobile Application Updates, March 2014
A few new features have been added to the Village Properties mobile application this month – expanded property descriptions, property sharing, and agent profiles. Below is an overview of each feature and what the changes look like in the app. (Note – a larger version of any image below can be displayed by clicking on it)
Expanded Property Profiles
The property details pages have been updated to be more informative and easier to use. Instead of “hiding” the property description behind the “More Details” button in the action panel, property descriptions are visible right on the page. Clients can immediately read an overview of the property without having to press an additional button.
The “More Details” button has been moved to underneath the property description and provides clients with additional details such as square footage, year built, property type, build construction, and schools.
The new property sharing feature allows clients to easily share a property from the details page. There are two ways a client can share a property.
1. By using the “Share” button in the action bar, a client can share the property through their favorite social network or email. Social networks supported are Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest.
2. Using the “Email this Listing” button, a client can email the listing to someone by entering the recipients name and email address along with their own name and email address without having to leave the app to use their phone’s email client.
The application has been updated to include enhanced agent profiles, which contain the agent bio (from the website), a link to the agent’s listings (if available), and the agent’s contact information – office phone, mobile, email, text, and website. In addition to accessing the agent profiles from within the app, they can also be accessed from outside the application. Now, when users find your Village Properties website through a Google search on their phone, they will be taken directly to your agent profile. You can also use the website address for your Village Properties profile to make QR codes, to email your profile to clients, or to include a link to your profile on your social network profiles.
You can check your profile by finding your name and selecting it in the “Agents” section of the application. If you need to update any of your information, including changing, adding, or deleting contact information, please contact Chris Burns to make your updates.
