The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) today released its app for the Apple iPhone.

The free application brings many of the features and functionality that can be found on the industry trade groups website plus some mobile specific features.

Taking advantage of the iPhone's GPS technology, features include:
  • Properties Near Me - get up-to-date property information, photos and driving directions;
  • New Listings Near Me - recent listings in the area you're visiting;
  • Open Houses Near Me - find open houses near your present location;
  • My Agent - Contact either your agent(s), or the listing agent for more information about a specific property;
  • Property Search - Search for houses and properties across Canada,

Within settings, users can set their default language, unit of measure, how properties are displayed, and a search radius for "Near Me" searches. Scheduled Open Houses can also be added to the device's calendar.

The new app is available now from the iTunes Canada app store.
