Doorsteps.com has been in the business of getting people into new homes for a while. Now, they’re taking that show on the road, with a new mobile app that they’re calling the ‘Tinder of Real Estate.’
It’s an apt comparison. Doorsteps Swipe takes your current location, and puts up a picture from realtors.com of a house for sale near you. You can either swipe to the left or give a thumbs down if it doesn’t suit you, or swipe to the right or give a thumbs up if you like what you see. Based on your responses, the app will get a sense of what you’re looking for in a house, and show you more of that, while giving you feedback – perhaps telling you something about your tastes that you hadn’t thought of before. If you’re looking to move far, far away from your current location, you can manually enter a location or choose ‘Surprise Me,’ which will show you houses from random locations.
So, where do all those right swipes go? To get the most out of the app, you’ll need a Doorsteps account. Once you’re done swiping for the day, you can go to their website, where you can see all of the houses you liked, along with more detailed information that can help you start (and end) the process of buying a new house.
Doorsteps Swipe is available for free on the iTunes App Store.
