For the first time in 5 years of the Yandex.Real Estate service, the company launched the mobile application of the same name

    September 3 can be considered the official release date of the first mobile application for the Yandex.Real Estate online service . Now the Yandex company (in combination - the developer of this application) has every chance to expand the audience of the service through a mobile audience.

    Users of the desktop and mobile versions of the application will be able to configure synchronization between them. The user can mark favorite options that he found while sitting at a personal computer. After that, they will be automatically saved in the mobile application. Moreover, the phone numbers of the people who posted the ads will be stored separately in the mobile application and prepared for the call.

    From the Yandex.Real Estate mobile application, the entire database of housing rentals, apartments and houses for sale from the desktop version will be available. For busy and pedantic users, it is possible to filter ads by such parameters as the number of rooms, cost, type of housing (new building or secondary) and location on the map. Search for apartments in new buildings is available for Moscow, St. Petersburg and their regions.

    The Yandex.Real Estate app is available for download in the Yandex.Store, App Store, and Google Play mobile app stores from September 3.

    The Yandex.Real Estate version for mobile devices appeared 5 years after the release of the desktop online version. At the dawn of its formation, the service acted as an aggregator of ads. And only in December 2014, real estate agencies and private homeowners were able to offer their ads for placement directly. Nevertheless, as before, ads on the service are placed for free. According to Yandex, the total service audience in Moscow and the Moscow region, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region over the past year (August 2014 to August 2015) grew by a quarter, and revenue doubled. Representatives of the company did not disclose absolute indicators, RBC reports .

    But competing companies do not sleep on the expensive sofas of their comfortable offices. Avito, for example, it attacks on two fronts at once: the all-Union fame has been earned by its housing search services on the Avito Announcements site and third-party . The first of them is the leader in the App Store rating in Russia in the Lifestyle category. The second is financed by the Singapore-based Korbitec group . Another competitor - the "cyanogen Group" - has a project "TsIAN.Nedvizhimost" , ( "Property and Prices") and . The group takes 19th place in the ranking of the most expensive Runet companies according to Forbes. According to, in November 2014, the total audience of all the projects mentioned was approximately 4.3 million unique users.

    In late August , Rambler expanded its range of functions on the Rambler.Real Estate portal and launched a legal service to verify the “cleanliness” of apartments, reported . For this, the portal has entered into a special agreement with legal experts. As it turned out, Russian users are willing to pay for the “cleanliness” of apartments in every sense of the word. Moreover, according to the developers, the cost of this service will be significantly lower than in real estate agencies. While the service is available to residents of Moscow, but in the future it is planned to connect the cities of the Moscow region and other regions.
