Tuscaloosa Apartment Guide Makes House-Hunting Easy with Mobile App

Tuscaloosa Apartment Guide has released an iPhone and Android (News - Alert) App to help locate suitable apartments in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. All of the communities in this region are listed on the national site, ShopApartments.com.

Jim Andrews, publisher of Tuscaloosa Apartment Guide, said, “At Tuscaloosa Apartment Guide, we are tireless in our efforts to connect renters with the perfect new home. To augment and enhance our printed product, we’ve eagerly embraced new tools and technologies as they’ve emerged, and incorporated them in ways that improve the user experience.”

According to officials, the online edition, TuscaloosaApartmentGuide.com, can be found on Facebook (News - Alert). Tuscaloosa Apartment Guide also offers a mobile site, QR codes, text messaging, iPhone and Android applications at ApartmentGuideApp.com, and a digital print at flip4apartments.com.

“We have also endeavored to serve the apartment industry in other ways such as education, information exchange, and consulting, to add value and assist in any possible way. Much has changed in the nearly thirty years of serving the multifamily industry, and we plan to be here, whatever that looks like, thirty years from now,” Andrews added.

The apartment guide publishers strive to bring renters and owners of homes together on a common platform. Hence, they have released the mobile app version besides the firm’s printed offering. The publisher offers as many ways as are possible to facilitate apartment hunting for renters, who can look for those houses that have the required features and amenities.

Tuscaloosa Apartment Guide has more than 300 distribution points for the printed book, such as grocery stores, convenience stores, retail outlets, university offices and community racks in the Tuscaloosa area.

Tuscaloosa Apartment Guide clients will be represented on the national site ShopApartments.com for West Alabama as well.

Recently, Agent Image, the Web design and Internet marketing firm, launched two new products targeted to meeting the growing mobile Web design and marketing needs of real estate professionals. With mobile-optimized sites, as well as custom-designed apps, agents will have new ways of reaching out to leads.

The app’s features include GPS directions, a property photo gallery, a mortgage calculator, an event calendar, and more. It also allows users to share properties through social media or e-mail.
