Summerlin® Offers New Home Finding App

With the city’s largest open house this weekend, Summerlin® offers new home buyers a technological advantage in their new home search process: a mobile app that allows users to see detailed floor plans, vivid photos and captivating photos of new homes in the community. Named “Best Website and Mobile App” in the Southern Nevada Home Builder’s 2014 Silver Nugget Awards, Summerlin’s free home finding app was the first of its kind to be launched in southern Nevada. Downloadable on any smart phone and tablet, the app offers a variety of options that help narrow down the search for your dream home.

“We designed this app to help make the house hunt easier,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, director of marketing for Summerlin. “We know the majority of new home buying begins online, so the app allows perspective home buyers to not only search for homes based on specific criteria, it also offers a direct connect application, linking users to on-site sales agents via phone or email once they’ve found a floor plan they like. While driving through The Mesa, The Ridges and The Paseos villages this weekend, new home buyers can access our app to help build a list of floor plans they want to visit.”

The app currently features Summerlin’s nine homebuilders and allows buyers to search using criteria including builder, home type, price range, number of bedrooms and location.  It also allows users to map neighborhood locations, review area amenities and save their searches. 

The new home finding app can be downloaded by searching “Summerlin” in your app store.
