KARACHI: Leading property portal Lamudi is going mobile, with the company today unveiling a new mobile app, for both Android and iOS users, for house-hunters in Pakistan.

The app, Lamudi: Real Estate for Sale and Rent, features a wide selection of agency and property listings, giving global house-hunters a free platform to find real estate on the go. From today, properties in Pakistan, Morocco, Mexico and Colombia will be featured on the app.

Lamudi has designed the app in order to meet the growing demand for mobile internet services in the emerging markets, especially Pakistan. A recent survey from the International Data Corporation (IDC) showed that mobile was catching up to desktop PCs as Pakistani consumers’ prefered using smartphones to access the web.

Saad Arshed, Country Director of Lamudi.pk, said: “It is no secret that house-hunting can be a stressful process. This app helps take the pressure out of searching for property, allowing you to look up homes for sale or rent at anytime and on any device.”

The app’s filter options have been optimised to allow users to narrow their search by country. A key feature of the app is the match alert function, which notifies users whenever a property that suits their needs hits the market. Users can create favourites lists to bookmark their preferred properties. All listings feature high-quality photo galleries, detailed property information, maps, and multiple contact details for property owners or agents.
