What makes HomeSpotter stand out from other apps?

HomeSpotter gives agents and clients a centralized location for all their messaging and collaboration needs, plus a digital toolkit that’s powered by your MLS—with access to real-time information so you’re always in the know!

With HomeSpotter, you can search by status, including Contingent, Pending, Expired, and Withdrawn, unlike other apps, which only showcase Active or Sold listings. The app is full of high-res photos, the most up-to-date property and neighborhood details, and an option to search using Augmented Reality to instantly view nearby properties. In select markets, users can also calculate commute times between a property and commonly-visited destinations.

Plus, our app has the industry's leading search service, which is powered by our MLS integrations. These tools allow agents and clients to filter results based on commute time estimates, school attendance zone boundaries, zip codes, and much more (may vary by MLS).
