Global real estate portal Jumia House has today unveiled a world-first Android app for house-hunters, available in 28 emerging markets worldwide.
The app, Jumia House: Real Estate for Sale and Rent, hosts more than 400,000 property listings from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America, giving international house-hunters a free mobile platform to buy, rent or sell real estate on the go.
Sacha Poignonnec, co-CEO of Africa Internet Holding, Jumia House’s founder, commented on the launch: “The Jumia House app is the first app of its kind in the world, due to the vast outreach of the app to 28 different emerging markets around the world, 17 of which are in Africa. This is a huge step for Jumia House in bringing the global real estate market into the pockets of millions of new users, who will now have access to the world’s largest online real estate platform on the move. Jumia House is revolutionising the way that users are searching for their ideal home, and will continue to underline its dominance as the market leader in Africa and the world.”
“We are really excited to have the mobile app here in Ghana as most people access the internet on their mobile phones,” commented Akua Nyame-Mensah, Managing Director of Jumia House Ghana. “My favorite part of the app is the amazing search options.”
Both the Android and iOS apps have customised search functions, allowing users to easily filter results by country. A key feature of the app is the match alert function, which notifies users as soon as a property that suits their needs hits the market. Users can also create a list of favourites to bookmark properties, which can be accessed at any time and on any device.
All listings feature high-quality photo galleries, detailed property information, maps, and multiple contact details for property owners or agents. House-hunters can also share their favourite properties with family and friends via Facebook, Twitter or email.
