Home buyers shop smarter with the Home Scout app

Let’s face it, in today’s world of house hunting the number of tools to aid home buyers in their quest for a dream home is nothing short of utterly overwhelming. Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com are just a few of the public search sites available and what home buyers may not know about these public search sites is the home data displayed is most times incomplete and inaccurate –missing up to 40% of the listings in many markets and displaying incorrect sales prices on more than 50%. In today’s competitive market that can be critical to home buyers.

At The Tuttle Group we want our clients to have the best tools and information available when searching for the home of their dreams. Not only does the Home Scout app offer 100% MLS listings in your local market but it also protects your personal information and never sells your data to advertisers.

Features of the Home Scout app include all the features you have come accustomed to expecting in an online search tool – such as setting a price range on your search, defining a preferred number of bedrooms/bathrooms or square footage, viewing homes available within desired school districts, and easily sharing property listings with family and friends. The Home Scout app, however, includes two additional features to really get excited about!

  • “Show Traffic” –You can actually see where traffic is moving or backing up in an area. Knowing traffic patterns can be helpful when looking to purchase in a new neighborhood.
  • “Points of Interest” – If a local coffee shop or market are critical to your daily commute, the “Points of Interest” feature displays every possible location near your potential new address.

We know how exciting it can be to purchase a new home, and it’s important to us that our clients have a seamless and enjoyable experience every step of the way.  The Home Scout app is just what you need to start searching like a pro!
