Ask Avenue makes connecting with realtors to find your dream property easier than ever before. A free app, Ask Avenue is a unique way to connect with local real estate agents.
Ask Avenue, by Avenue Interactive Inc., is a pretty cool real estate app. Instead of you just having to browse through all of the local listings on your own, this app connects you (virtually) with a certified real estate agent in your own area that can help find you the homes/apartments/living spaces that interest you the most.
Past conversations with agents can be reviewed or deleted if they’re no longer of use to you, and searches for homes or agents is not limited to the GPS region of your iOS device.
Specifically, Ask Avenue allows you to change your city of location prior to making inquiries, making it possible to house-hunt prior to ever actually arriving in a location.
While actually using Ask Avenue was a really easy experience, it is important to note that use of the app is tied to your Facebook account.
For interested users who don’t wish to connect their two accounts or for anyone who does not have a Facebook account, using Ask Avenue isn’t really an option; this factor can definitely detract from the overall appeal of this app.
Appearance and Layout:
Ask Avenue has a fresh, clean feeling about its user interface. The design is very user-friendly, and its layout makes it easy to get around the app even when you’re just starting to use it.
This user-friendly design is one of the stronger features of the app and makes working with it a pleasure. Resetting your searches to be area-specific instead of GPS-based is also easily done.
This app has very few things cluttering the screen at any one time, and I felt like this minimalistic approach was great for keeping my focus on the photos provided by the agents.
As a whole, the layout of Ask Avenue is easy to understand, and personalizing the app to best fit your own real estate needs is very easy to accomplish.
This is a free app. It’s easy to use, and I felt that questions were answered in a timely manner. However, with the prevalence of easy-browse real estate apps already on the market today, it’s hard to recommend Ask Avenue over those already more popular apps.
Additionally, we’d like to suggest the ability to register with an email address since the connection to a Facebook login will definitely deter some potential users.
Ask Avenue requires iOS 9.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedited fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
