RPR mobile™ is now available for all REALTORS®
Since my last update, RPR mobile™ was approved by Apple, and is now available for download in the App Store. Also as noted previously, the Android version is available for download from the Google Play Store. This gives REALTORS® a new level of access to the data found in RPR while out in the field. Now REALTORS® using RPR mobile™ can instantly view the properties around them, and get listing, sales, valuation, assessment, deed, foreclosure, school, photos, maps, market trend information and more. I encourage you to take a moment and download the app onto your device.
Additionally, with the release of RPR version 1.34, the RPR product and development teams have just wrapped up development on a new feature that allows our RPR mobile™ users to draw a custom search area using the maps directly on your smartphone. Look for more information on this enhancement in the coming weeks.
