A good real estate app should be simple to use. Viewing the images of the houses should also be easy. A good app should allow the seller to include the contacts details, in case a prospective buyer needs to make contact. The real estate app should also allow the sellers to list some of the discounted homes for sale, as well as any commission offered to the broker who wish to sell the house on behalf of the seller.
The app should have a search button where buyers look for houses they wish to buy. Searching using keywords should be enabled. The search result should be saved and availed the next time a user want to refer to the previous results. The houses posted should have all the required details. This will allow the prospective buyer to have an idea of the kind of house to buy.
When uploading the images, the process should not be complicated, and the app should state the size of ideal images to be uploaded. Pages do not open easily when the users upload bulky images.
The app should work with common operating systems and devices. Mobile phones are the preferred gadgets where the prospective home buyer or a buyer will install the app. It should always remain up-to-date, and at the same time, allow the users to be able to download and install the updates with ease. Most apps are free to install, and do not charge any money to install the application.

Brokers too should also get a chance to post houses as brokers, and sell on behalf of the owners. The app should also state the cases that leads to a broker refunding the commission, e.g. if a sale did not go through.
