Redfin Buy & Sell Real Estate Reviews

    Highly recommend to any buyers

    I am buying my first home through Redfin and I always had this doubt on how the whole process is different from hiring a realtor, well the answer is simple, if you pick a realtor you will only be able to see choices they send us, and it’s more painful to have them beside you taking from one house to another and the more house you see the less patient they get.. however with Redfin the best thing I noticed was I can search all the homes listed by any realtor for free through their app and all I have to do is choose the location where I need my house and all lists pulls up automatically, once you select the house you will have a person from Redfin who will take you for the tour and they don’t get tired at all.. second best thing is Having Erick grande beside you, a person whom you can rely on and he has options for any troubles.. saying this Redfin provides you a deal money that you can use at the end of closing, I would recommend this app to anyone I know or would recommend to any buyers who had trouble buying their dream house

    Love this app!

    I usually don’t write reviews but this app is one I enjoy using, its very easy to navigate and understand, you can “heart” houses you love and come back to them to determine which ones you want to view. They also have a function that allows you to contact the realtors and see when they have open houses. It shows when a house you are looking for is already sold or pending so you don’t waste your time. It gives you estimates of pay and has filters to determine what your looking in a house. I’ve used many apps like this to look for houses but this is by far my favorite one and it is now the only one I use. The only thing I wished this app had is a place for the ones you “X” out In the same way they have a place for the ones you “heart” I dislike that I have to scroll through houses I’ve already looked at and don’t want to see. Even with that this app is a 5 out of 5!

    To the developer: can you please make it more difficult to “unheart” favorites? I’ve now had multiple instances of accidentally “unhearting” favorites while scrolling through them. The heart is located right where a right-handed person would naturally scroll when still trying to be able to see the picture list. Because I’m searching four counties and over multiple months, I can’t always remember exactly where each house is located, particularly if it’s a new favorite. And searching by street name (if I remember it) is ineffectual. There are then literally hundreds of houses that I have to individually search back through to find the favorite. Maybe remove the “unheartable” heart from the scrolling list (so that you have to click on the entry to get to the clickable heart)? When it’s on our favorites list, it’s not like having that heart there adds anything. Or add a “are you sure” pop up? Otherwise, this app has been awesome in helping me keep track of the market as I get ready to purchase. Thanks!

    I need a reset button

    Redfin is my go to house hunting app... & I’ve been following the market for several (like 4) years now. I do not use the desktop version , so I cannot rate that portion. Overall, this app is great. That being said, I am beyond frustrated with the “🔔 New Homes” tab (bottom, middle). Usually, this is a great feature that lists newly listed houses that Redfin believes you will be interested in. One of the reasons I used to like it was that it used to be a shortcut to finding back “that newly listed house” I was talking about so I could show it to them. However, my algorithm has somehow gotten off and it has started to show me homes far outside my price range & occasionally out of my area. There is no way that I can determine to fix &/or reset this. I can’t delete the house from the “New Homes” list nor does “x”ing the house out remove it from the list. It’s not like these houses are showing up in my actual searches, so why bother “x”ing them out? This has basically made the entire feature useless. I would love to reset it and have my “new home” tab back...

    Great but with issues

    Update! Still don't have agents and missing out on houses because no one is available to show them 😡😡😡 I really enjoy this app and have been using the agent feature to look at homes. While that is a great feature I'm now realizing they don't have enough people to show homes and sometimes you can't get into a home for days because they don't have any agents to show it. Also, I don't like the insight feature. We just looked at a house for the third time yesterday and in talks with our main agent to put in an offer but now the agent who took us yesterday goes in and fills out a tour insight saying how fantastic the property is and notifications are going out with it. That's fantastic for us buyers who are trying to work a deal and now feel this will bring more showings and could cost us the property. So apparently Redfin is great for sellers and not so much for buyers. The other feature I'm not a big fan of is the notifications of new properties way out of the price range I've been looking. Why would it send me these when it's not even close to my search?

    App provides great info, only fails to transition notifications between networks

    I have been using Redfin for a while now (more than a year), and have been happy to get updates and notifications regarding houses/real-estate properties, based on my filters. One issue that bothers me though, is this: I have set Redfin to not work over Cellular network; now, if I open a notification while on Cellular network, the app opens to a blank page with a popup; at this point I lose the notification and the page, even if I switch to a WiFi network. I think it would be useful, if Redfin let me “pulldown” on the page to reload it, after having switched the network (if all of this is even possible). But this does not mean I don’t like the app. It works great, and provides me with awesome information about the properties that interest me, allowing me to make well-informed decisions and choices.

    Much better than the other 2 RE apps

    Everyone searching for a home knows about the other 2 RE app (Tr & Zi - which are both owned by the same company). I’ve used both of those apps extensively in my searching. They each have a few features/ available data that the other does not. So in order to get complete info on any given home (taxes, school info, street view of home, sometimes even the written description, etc) - you would have to go to both back & forth between both sites/apps. I’ve only recently learned about Redfin and the Redfin app. Much better! Redfin has ALL of the features/ available data in one place. It’s easy to use in either list or map format. And it seems to be more current as to when homes go on & off the market. I deleted the other 2 apps and am now using RF exclusively. Happy Home Hunting!

    Messy and unhelpful, bordering on useless

    It’s almost like this app is actively trying to get users to not use Redfin. No matter how I “tune my recommendations,” I constantly get notifications for houses way, way outside my price range, in cities I’ve never searched for, etc. And I’m not even going to go into how it constantly resets the sort, map view, etc. I do not get at all what the “Recommended” sort option is supposed to be showing me, but you seem set on forcing it on me regardless of what I do. Whatever it is, it’s not at all useful. I have to sort and re-sort again to actually see new properties. This isn’t Facebook, guys. You don’t need some stupid algorithm. You’re selling something. Just show me what I’m looking for in the order I ask for it. Why is that so hard? What are you doing with all this nonsense, other than putting tons of roadblocks and annoyances in the way of your users? Maybe hire a UX expert or something because, man, this entire app is just littered with irritating little things that add up to an entirely repellent user experience.

    Overall a helpful tool

    Redfin is a good app. Simple, transparent, and with good filters to narrow down real estate search. It falls short of a 5-star app because of two strange behaviors: 1. It doesn’t let you view all the homes for sale in a city based on Great Schools rankings. You have to zoom into a very small area for school-based filtering to apply. Until then, the filter simply doesn’t work. The way I like to do property searches is to look at an entire city (or custom area), filter on Great Schools ranking 8+, and then play around with the resulting options. The app doesn’t let you operate that way. 2. In select cities such as New York City, it requires that you re-enter your password to view the complete listing. Even after re-entering, the app takes you back to the restricted version of the listing as if you still haven’t entered the password. You need to kill the app and re-open it immediately to see the unrestricted listing. It’s a pretty annoying bug that affects me almost every session.

    Love the notifications based on your filters

    This app really helped me find our dream home. It helped us understand the local market. I love how you can pull a report on what houses were listed for vs what they actually sold for with days on the market. Zillow does not offer this capability. It helped us understand how to negotiate our offer to purchase a home by including enough time to sell our current home. I also love the updates on how our home is appreciating. They only throng they could do better is the estimates on current value. I feel like this is too conservative because I have seen the Redfin value of 2.0m and then the home is listed for 2.6m and sells within a week all cash offer. I have seen a few of these examples.

    Almost there, but no shortcomings

    This app is so close to being truly useful, but it has several glaring flaws. Generally speaking, I still think it’s better than Zillow (which I find has data accuracy issues), Realtor and Coldwell Banker, but the problems below impair my experience as a buyer. 1) The automated ‘Recommendations’ ignore search settings like price range and city and there is no way to ‘tell’ the algorithm what you don’t want to see. Why show me a house that is 50% above my price range and in a city where I have NEVER CHECKED A LISTING? Training the recommendation algorithm could be implemented using a ‘swipe left’ to eliminate a recommendation. Right now, ‘swipe-left’ circles back through a property’s picture gallery. Not super helpful and a waste of a gesture. 2) There is a ‘commute time’ feature when viewing a listing, which is great, but no way to filter results by it. I would like to be able to specify a commute (a user could select whether that commute is house-to-work or house-to-train) and see ONLY properties within that commute. The others are irrelevant but keep showing up. 3) There is no way to exclude specific cities from results. I don’t want to see properties in cities I do not want to live in, no matter how far I zoom out. Adding these features would make the Redfin app MUCH more useful for buyers like myself.

    So close

    I love the layout of Redfin. I LOVE that it factors in things like tax and ins on the payment estimates. And if this app would stop being glitchy, it would be a 5 star HANDS DOWN. I’m looking in a crazy sellers market. House go up and HOURS later they’re pending. I need an app that allows me to SEE the houses. I can click on a house. I can look at the pictures, but since your last update, whether or not I can scroll down to see the amazing details is random AF. Before that, it liked to close out at random times. I can’t say if it’s still doing it, because I rage quit after the 4th or 5th swipe up to see the details. For buyers, this is an amazing app. At least on IOS, be prepared for the glitches. I hope you work it out soon! I’ve have 7 weeks before we move and I need to find a house ASAP! I LOVE this app enough to leave a review and hope you get it worked out!!

    Stuck in landscape mode!

    The functionality of the app is pretty good, it works more smoothly and consistently than the web site which frequently fails to load maps or other features. The problem is the app is locked into landscape mode forever! You’re going to spend hours with this app and having to hold your iPad sideways to a couple of hours gets pretty uncomfortable. For the first time in several years as a heavy iPad user, I felt physical pain from being forced into a sideways grip. If you can get over that or you already customarily use your tablet in this way, with a kickstand or keyboard stand for example, you’ll adore how well the app works. I’d gladly give this thing five stars if it didn’t cause me physical pain to use. Just don’t zoom in too much or the app will for some unknown reason deluge you with already sold homes instead of homes for sale!

    Needs help

    Please add lot size to the thumbnail view. Also please add a sort for lot size in descending order. Some people don’t care about anything but the lot possibility. It’s very cumbersome to search in that case. Also- open house list should be super easy and not require a Redfin agent to be contacted just to glance at a property. Every weekend there should be a suggested Redfin adventure map, plotting a driving map to potential properties to explore. With the incentive for using the Redfin agent on each property. Push notifications could also notify you if there is an open house nearby that fits your search criteria. We have explored areas in the car and not found it easy to get from one open house to the other, driving. App needs to take the open house hours in to account and suggest a route to see all within the “draw” area and search criteria.

    Fastest updates from MLS!

    We had been house searching for months and I had EVERY other app on my phone with search notifications enabled. I had heard Redfin was the fastest so I downloaded it as well and saved a search with notifications set up. This app is the reason I was notified within minutes of my dream home coming on the market. The other apps had a few hour delay before I received the same notification from them. Because of Redfin notifying us so quickly we were able to schedule a prompt showing with our agent and were the first to submit an offer in a very competitive market. We just closed on the house. THANK YOU Redfin! If you download more than one app I would recommend this one and Estately.
