|App developers must tailor-make their solutions.|
In my nine years as a property consultant involved in the selling and letting of immovable property or real estate I have witnessed the emergency of various ITC applications meant to market real estate. I have been an account holding client of all these major websites for years and my hands-on experience with all that they offer and in real estate has given me valuable insight about real estate focused applications and I would like to share it with you. Of late they have worked hard to improve the quality of user experience by working on aesthetics and search capabilities. For example on search capabilities they introduced predictive text that suggest names of places as the person types in a convenience just like that offered by Google. But satisfying the needs of home seekers profitably demands more than pretty graphics and generic solutions that can be cut and paste from the internet. Home seekers demand tailor-made solutions that gives answers to problems they are facing on the ground as they do property search in the Zimbabwean market. I will therefore suggest areas that ICT entrepreneurs must work on in order for their applications to become million dollar enterprises despite the current economic subsidence.
