Magicbricks.com, an Indian service which deals with the real estate and property segment, has announced the launch of its property listing and management solution on mobile. The new solution aims to make the whole process of listing properties, media upload, property management etc. easy for realty professionals and property owners. The logic behind this new development seems to be that more of their users (property owners and realty professionals) are now using their mobile phones and mobile internet to go about their property business. This new solution will now help brokers and property owners to use MagicBricks on the fly.
Magicbricks says that builders, brokers and industry professionals rarely access the web from their desktops due to nature of their work. They are primarily on their mobile phones. The new webapp allows these professionals to go about their property management needs in a simple manner from the comfort of the small screen. In addition to uploading media, these professionals can use the location tagging feature to make it easier to make their property discoverable by others. They can edit and delete their listed properties and view all the contacts made on your listings.
Sudhir Pai, Business Head at MagicBricks.com spoke about this development.
“While most property portals across the world have apps to search properties –they don’t have apps for posting listings. To advertise a listing users still need to go to a desktop to create their posts –this is primarily due to the challenge of uploading photos, videos, etc. required. This is the challenge we met at MagicBricks.com and have brought an easy, quick and rich content property-posting interface for the mobile browser.”
Users can go to http://m.magicbricks.com/mymagicbox on their mobile phones and access the MagicBricks service. The webapp is built using HTML5. Users need to be registered on the service before going ahead and using the service.
This is how the webapp looks.
Windows Phone app:
Besides the webapp, the service is also available on their Windows Phone app. The app’s offers all the features of Magicbricks in addition to the property listing and management tools. The UI and design differs from that of the core service but it does have all the features that the webapp offers.
If you are a property owner or a realty professional on MagicBricks then this will make your life easier.
