When it comes to modern technology, a lot of times we’re inundated with advertising for new apps that have hit the market. Less time is spent on showcasing apps that are busy creating hype all on their own, which is the case when it comes to real estate industry disruptor Zillow.
With a rich history in the industry dating back to 2006, the company has taken its time to grow its physical and digital products, in order to offer consumers with the best possible experience. Let’s explore Zillow as a brand today, while also looking at how their core app (and app suite) has turned them into an industry-leading force to be reckoned with.
An Introduction to Zillow
Zillow launched almost fifteen years ago and has been growing from strength to strength since day one. Headquartered in Seattle in the US, the company is well known for its ability to serve the full lifecycle associated with owning or living in a home. This includes helping consumers with buying, renting, selling, financing and even remodeling. With an active database of more than 100 million homes in America, the introduction of its popular suite of real estate apps (which includes over 24 apps across all platforms) has solidified them as a brand that is not only here to disrupt the market, but here to stay for the long haul as well.
Zillow’s Core App Features
Zillow’s primary app, which has an impressive rating of 4.7 out of 5 on the Apple Store, is all about reimagining how you go about the process of buying, renting and selling. The app itself, which was seamlessly designed, includes the ability to do all three, as well as giving users access to millions of listings across the US. What was particularly good about the user experience on first use, was that it included assistance every step of the way, including the registration process, as well as when it came to finding relevant listings as well. Spend some time on Zestimate (their independent home valuation tool) when you first check it out, which can give you a better sense as to what your home may be worth, based on location, size and other factors.
What Sets Zillow Apart
In times when user data and privacy are at the core of global discussions, Zillow works to empower their customers with data, inspiration and knowledge, all the while taking important steps to safeguard the data of their users. Considering they have a lot of data in the first place, this is an important tenet to their business. From a more practical sense, Zillow helps to connect consumers with resources based on their individual real estate needs, essentially becoming a “go-to” hub for anyone needing assistance in buying, selling and renting. Ultimately, it may even become a one-stop-shop, disrupting the real estate industry on a larger scale — a likelihood, but only time will tell.
How To Go About Getting The Zillow App
Finding the right app to learn more about the real estate market in your area doesn’t need to be difficult, and if you’re about to embark on a journey towards buying, selling or renting a home, look no further than the app store on your phone. Zillow’s website can also point you in the right direction to get your hands on the app, as well as offer you some more insight into how their processes work, what you can expect when using their products, and how to reach their team if you need additional support. If you’re looking for a real estate app that will go the extra mile for you, and ultimately secure the best possible deal for you based on your specific needs, you need not look any further than this exciting piece of technology.
