ArriveHome, an agent-matching app that connects homebuyers with nearby agents on demand, in an Uber-like style, is expanding its features and geographical reach.

Launched last year in Colorado in partnership with REColorado, the state’s largest MLS, ArriveHome recently branched out to California and Arizona. The startup has also added several new features to its app for Apple iOS devices (iPhone and iPad) and Google Android devices (such as Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets), including increased safety measures and the ability to house hunt with an exclusive agent throughout the search.

ArriveHome works by presenting a live map of nearby agents or properties to the user. Those looking for a home can then reach out to individual agents to get answers to questions about a property or arrange a showing.

Todd Narlinger, the co-founder of ArriveHome, told Inman that the company is excited to bring the map to new locations. Specifically, the app is now working with ListHub for the California and Arizona home data.

“[We are] melding the ‘on-demand/Amazon effect‘ into real estate giving the consumer faster, easier access to properties,” Narlinger said. “No more sign calls or long e-mail threads that do not get returned quickly enough.”

The app is free for house-hunters to use, but agents pay $39.99 per month in California, $29.99 per month in Arizona and $19.99 per month in Colorado to join and gain access to potential clients.

One new feature is an “exclusive agent” snapshot, in which homebuyers can select a single agent to help them with their home search. A homebuyer who selects this feature will have all other potential agents disappear from the map.

Two additional features include: “ghost mode,” which hides your location on the map while still letting you see all the nearby properties, and the integration of third-party vendors such as TrustStamp and Forewarn to better protect client information.

“The agent can instantly see their clients favorited homes and the client can instantly find their connected agents location on the map,” said Narlinger, who hopes that ArriveHome will be available nationwide in the next year. “Any agent can create a more personalized, self-branded app experience for their clients as well as stay available to visiting home shoppers.”

According to Nalinger, the company also has big plans for the upcoming months — ArriveHome will be rolling out a full searching website and branching out to more states in the next 60 days.
