For reference purposes, the results should be available anytime time the app user want to access them. The app should allow the sellers to include necessary details such as the number of rooms, size of the rooms among others. This will allow the prospective buyer to have an idea of the kind of house to buy.
Uploading images for the houses on sale should be easy, with a limit on the size of each image. To avoid slowing down the app when perusing through the pages, bulky images should be avoided.
For easier access, the app should have the capability to operate on several gadgets and be compatible with common operating systems. Prospective buyers and sellers can install the app on their mobile phones, tablets, or any smart gadget. It should always remain up-to-date, and at the same time, allow the users to be able to download and install the updates with ease.

The app should also have an easy to use interface, to allow several home buyers and sellers access it with ease. Every home buyer want to log into the app, see a number of houses that interests him and contact the seller, without spending so much time. The app should also allow an agent or broker to post a house on behalf of homeowner and get his or her commission with ease.
