HARRISONBURG--- A new real estate app is catching on in. The app is released by Funkhouser Real Estate and is the first of its kind in the area.
The app uses GPS to show properties for rent and sale nearby. Users can also draw around a specific area to see property information. The app also can use a camera to give an augmented reality display. It also lets users find realtor information and request walkthrough.
"It really does make the consumer as connected to the agent as they want to be, which is what we're finding consumers want today is information, a lot of it on their terms," said Pete Laver, Director of Business Development for Funkhouser Real Estate.
