App Reviews

  • Good tool

    By Pleased Consumer - 2016
    I enjoy using Redfin in our home search. The notifications are very quick and the links from your email always work and take you exactly to what you’re looking for. The map and directions features are great, and being able to see schools and other businesses on the map is a nice feature to show approximation from the home. Unfortunately you can only pick min and max prices by jumps of $25k. I wish we had more control over this. To be able to choose in $5k or $10k increments would be ideal. The recommendations aren’t really tailored to your needs. They take into consideration everything you’ve ever looked at, meaning if you click on a $375k house just to see how beautiful that house is, you’ll start seeing homes in that price range too. I wish there was a way to apply filters to the recommendations too so you could search more freely and accurately. The street view feature is a great touch. Being able to see if the house has been updated, how close it is to the neighbors, or if there’s a business nearby for when you come tour it is great. The full details section is great for understanding layouts and dimensions, also for inclusions and exclusions within the house. I would say to also remember the calculation tool is an approximation but it generally is fairly close. Overall a good app!
  • Pricing sort is driving me nuts!

    By LadyBugV1
    I used to love this app but am ready to drop it just because of the pricing sort. I get it has some glitches but I can live with those. THIS glitch, I simply can’t because it affects the entire experience of looking for a home. Each time the search refreshes itself, I have to remind the app to apply the sort order I’ve already selected (Low to high pricing) because the sort is now in some Redfin preferred order. Of note - when you go to change the setting, it still says it’s in low to high pricing sort order (untrue) since the houses are not listed that way. To fix it, I have switch the order to high to low or any other sort, go back to the app to “awaken” sort , then go back again to sort settings and switch to low to high and then back again to the app for the sort to actually reset itself to my preferred sort. Using the map - Imagine you move your search 5 miles east - you have to repeat the above process again because the home results are no longer listed in low to high pricing. In one 15 min use of the app, I have to repeat this insane reawaken and reset sort order several times! It tells me the designers don’t actually use their app. Incredibly annoying especially since it used to work properly a while back!! FIX IT please!!
  • I need a reset button

    By NCErinT
    Redfin is my go to house hunting app... & I’ve been following the market for several (like 4) years now. I do not use the desktop version , so I cannot rate that portion. Overall, this app is great. That being said, I am beyond frustrated with the “🔔 New Homes” tab (bottom, middle). Usually, this is a great feature that lists newly listed houses that Redfin believes you will be interested in. One of the reasons I used to like it was that it used to be a shortcut to finding back “that newly listed house” I was talking about so I could show it to them. However, my algorithm has somehow gotten off and it has started to show me homes far outside my price range & occasionally out of my area. There is no way that I can determine to fix &/or reset this. I can’t delete the house from the “New Homes” list nor does “x”ing the house out remove it from the list. It’s not like these houses are showing up in my actual searches, so why bother “x”ing them out? This has basically made the entire feature useless. I would love to reset it and have my “new home” tab back...
  • Much better than the other 2 RE apps

    By ColoMomof4
    Everyone searching for a home knows about the other 2 RE app (Tr & Zi - which are both owned by the same company). I’ve used both of those apps extensively in my searching. They each have a few features/ available data that the other does not. So in order to get complete info on any given home (taxes, school info, street view of home, sometimes even the written description, etc) - you would have to go to both back & forth between both sites/apps. I’ve only recently learned about Redfin and the Redfin app. Much better! Redfin has ALL of the features/ available data in one place. It’s easy to use in either list or map format. And it seems to be more current as to when homes go on & off the market. I deleted the other 2 apps and am now using RF exclusively. Happy Home Hunting!
  • Stuck in landscape mode!

    By Just Your Usual Reviewer
    The functionality of the app is pretty good, it works more smoothly and consistently than the web site which frequently fails to load maps or other features. The problem is the app is locked into landscape mode forever! You’re going to spend hours with this app and having to hold your iPad sideways to a couple of hours gets pretty uncomfortable. For the first time in several years as a heavy iPad user, I felt physical pain from being forced into a sideways grip. If you can get over that or you already customarily use your tablet in this way, with a kickstand or keyboard stand for example, you’ll adore how well the app works. I’d gladly give this thing five stars if it didn’t cause me physical pain to use. Just don’t zoom in too much or the app will for some unknown reason deluge you with already sold homes instead of homes for sale!
  • So close

    By Tigerlady6409
    I love the layout of Redfin. I LOVE that it factors in things like tax and ins on the payment estimates. And if this app would stop being glitchy, it would be a 5 star HANDS DOWN. I’m looking in a crazy sellers market. House go up and HOURS later they’re pending. I need an app that allows me to SEE the houses. I can click on a house. I can look at the pictures, but since your last update, whether or not I can scroll down to see the amazing details is random AF. Before that, it liked to close out at random times. I can’t say if it’s still doing it, because I rage quit after the 4th or 5th swipe up to see the details. For buyers, this is an amazing app. At least on IOS, be prepared for the glitches. I hope you work it out soon! I’ve have 7 weeks before we move and I need to find a house ASAP! I LOVE this app enough to leave a review and hope you get it worked out!!
  • Love the notifications based on your filters

    By ToriLovesSoftware
    This app really helped me find our dream home. It helped us understand the local market. I love how you can pull a report on what houses were listed for vs what they actually sold for with days on the market. Zillow does not offer this capability. It helped us understand how to negotiate our offer to purchase a home by including enough time to sell our current home. I also love the updates on how our home is appreciating. They only throng they could do better is the estimates on current value. I feel like this is too conservative because I have seen the Redfin value of 2.0m and then the home is listed for 2.6m and sells within a week all cash offer. I have seen a few of these examples.
  • The layout is great, notifications are terrible.

    By GratefulDean1
    We’ve tried all the various real estate apps while searching for a new home. Redfin has the best and most intuitive layout. Street view is great, the way they show pricing on the map is great. But, and this is a huge but, the notifications are absolutely atrocious. Let’s say you come a cross a house that looks amazing but is double your budget but you want to check it out , or a ridiculously expensive condo that you just want to take a peak at but your main search is for single family homes. Well, you will then be inundated with notifications for those types of property at the larger cost. There doesn’t seem to be a way to say: “I want notifications for houses between $400k and $500k in these areas only”. Or, for my wife and I “We want house in that price range with schools that are ranked 7 and above” (that would be money. I wish I had some coding skills) We are in a city where homes move fast, like 3 days tops for properties in our budget. So, we need valuable notifications that will help us on our search. Not cascading notifications in awful neighborhoods for homes that we would never consider buying. I hope the folks at Redfin read these reviews.
  • Need to expand area and minor quirks but LOVE this app

    By lorimack3
    By far the most superior real estate app available. My biggest complaint is they’re not everywhere. When I’m searching an area that says “Redfin is not available in this area,” I use Trulia, which I completely dislike. There are quirks in the data such as the map that is supposed to show the layout of the property. Many times the property lines are inaccurate. I always verify with state parcel pages. School information is also often times missing on the phone version but available on the computer site. Otherwise, this app is so user friendly and visually appealing. Please, please expand your area!
  • Always my favorite real rstste engine

    By jerry franc
    Very informative, many pics, map, good descriptions, all necessary info at fingertips. I give Redfin AAA+ rating for tacklin their job and being a true masters. And no I am not their employee, but after going through Zillow and Realtor. Com I always end up with Redfin as most user friendly search. When I eas a real estate agent I used to double check properties from MLS and Redfin and found out that some agents purposefully did not list properties on MLS but had them hanging on Redfin because the wanted to list & sell themselves and double up commission. Many times I found an active property on Redfin thst was not MLM listed. Just throwing it out there for you to know
