UK estate agent Foxtons are avid supporters of Microsoft's Windows ecosystem. Not only has the company adopted Windows Phone, providing Nokia Lumia 820 units to agents on the ground, but consumers who are looking at property are able to use the official Windows Phone app to see the catalogue of properties in the Foxtons database. The estate agent has now released a Windows 8.1 app.
Specialising in London and South East England, the estate agent has numerous options available should you be looking to purchase new property or wanting to dive into rented accommodation. The Windows 8.1 app brings the Foxtons experience together with new features and improvements added by Microsoft in its latest OS release.
With the Windows 8 app, you're able to browse thousands of properties available, with the catalogue being updated throughout the day. A sweet feature of Foxtons listings is the quality of photos on offer. Sometimes when you see a property on other resources you like the look of, is in a sweet area and sounds great, there can be the feeling of disappointment when photos accompanying the listing are sub-par or non-existent. This isn't the case here.
Not only do you have great shots of your potential home, but there's an interactive floor plan. The small details are also included, showing how much council tax you'll need to pay and nearest transport links. If the property is just not for you after some evaluation, Foxtons makes it easy to browse other listings in the nearby vicinity.
Sharing property listings with friends is straightforward too, and is pretty handy when you want external opinions on a future investment. Much like other property apps on the store, you can save favourites, configure searches, filters and synchronise your account between the Foxtons website and mobile apps.
Grab the official Foxtons app from the Windows Store, as well as the Windows Phone version (QR code below) while you're on a download spree. Are you searching for property? How have you found the Foxtons Windows and Windows Phone apps?
