Real Estate Tech Roundup 5/8/11

Each week, we take a look at the top stories in real estate technology from the past seven days. Here are the latest stories from around the world:

  • Singapore’s iproperty.com.sg is the latest portal to release an Android app, allowing users to search over 70,000 listings. “Smartphone users account for over 10 percent of the total website traffic to iproperty.com.sg, and we believe this figure will grow to at least 15 percent by early next year as smartphone penetration in Singapore is set to increase,” says iProperty Group CEO Shaun Di Gregorio.
  • zillow.com also made some updates to its mobile offering, adding personalisation features to its mobile website. A new map-based search, a “search nearby” tool, and the ability to sort search results by price, days online and other factors have also been added to the mobile website.
  • US real estate franchise Keller Williams says that, less than five months since its launch, more than 40,000 of its associates are using its online lead-to-close tool eEdge. “eEdge, a 2011 Inman Innovator Award finalist for Most Innovative Real Estate Service, is the real estate industry’s first fully-integrated front and backend platform for real estate professionals,” the company states.
  • US property information and analytics company CoreLogic has sold its India-based operations to business process outsourcing company Cognizant for US$50 million plus other charges to be determined at closing. CoreLogic India’s 4,000 associates will become employees of Cognizant once the deal goes through.
  • RentChimp, a web application that helps users track their favourite apartments, receive alerts, and get input from their social networks before they sign a lease, has launched an affiliate program. This program will reward RentChimp users who “like” the company’s Facebook page and share a link to it with their Facebook friends. The site currently sources its listings from Craigslist.
