Leading Property site Lamudi launches world-first Android & iOS app in 28 countries including Saudi Arabia.
Global real estate portal Lamudi has today launched an Android app to help house hunters in Saudi find property on the go.
The app, Lamudi: Real Estate for Sale and Rent, hosts more than 400,000 property listings from Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa. The app covers all the cities in Saudi – giving house-hunters a free mobile platform to buy, rent or sell real estate on a mobile device.
The apps from Lamudi, a Middle East Internet Holding (MEIH) company, are designed to meet the growing demand for mobile internet services in the emerging markets. Android remains the dominant mobile platform worldwide, according to recent figures from Statcounter. In Jordan for instance, Android is the most popular platform, with Google’s operating system capturing nearly 70 percent of the local mobile market. But iOS is also on the rise.
Lamudi’s Co-Founder and Managing Director, Antonius Salis, said: “Android is the future of the smartphone market not just in Saudi, but worldwide. For this reason, we have focused on rolling out the Android app to Lamudi’s 28 countries to reach the maximum number of users with our unique property platform.
The Lamudi app is Saudi`s first because of the sheer number of cities and variety of listings. So whether you are looking to rent a villa in Jeddah, invest in an Apartment in Riyadh or buy a building in Dammam, the Lamudi app helps you find your perfect property match.”
Country Manager for Lamudi Saudi, Khaled Alali, said: “It is no secret that house-hunting can be a stressful process. This app helps take the pressure out of searching for property, allowing you to look up homes for sale or rent at any time and on any device.”
Both the Android and iOS apps have customized search functions, allowing users to easily filter results by country. A key feature of the app is the match alert function, which notifies users as soon as a property that suits their needs hits the market. Users can also create a list of favorites to bookmark properties, which can be accessed at any time and on any device.
All listings feature high-quality photo galleries, detailed property information, maps, and multiple contact details for property owners or agents. House-hunters can also share their favorite properties with family and friends via Facebook, Twitter or email.
