Redfin Adds Tour Requests On iPhone, iPad

Seattle-based online real estate service Redfin said this week that it will now allow users to request in-person home tours with agents directly from its iPhone or iPad apps. Redfin said that the requests can be made with a "few swipes of the finger" and is as easy as ordering a pizza. The new update is just one of the latest enhancements by the firm to make all of its web-based features also equally available on its mobile apps. The company said the move came as it has started to see traffic to the site from mobile devices grow exponentially.
