  1. Personally i feel that a real estate search mobile app should include a 360-degree or virtual tour based on the Virtual Reality (VR) technology. After searching for an ideal property, users just want to see every aspect of the property. Inside and outside viewing of the property can help them narrow down their preferences. An interactive real estate search app can enable users to get a lifelike experience of the property they like.

    Apart from virtual tours, users like high-quality images of the shortlisted property from different angles. These images can act as a catalyst for making a purchasing decision. The mobile app development company can also integrate features based on Augmented Reality technology to show how a specific property will appear after renovations.
