Searching for your next home? This Nanaimo-focused app makes it easy!

Use the technology you know to find the home you’ll love

When the rental market is as tight as it is right now, no one wants to waste time with homes that are too big, too busy or too remote.

So what if your just-right home was as close as your smart phone?

Available for both Apple and Android platforms, the new Property Dive app puts the residential rental properties in your community right in the palm of your hand!

After rolling out in Nanaimo in late summer, the app has now expanded to other BC communities. Here at home, the app is connecting home-seekers with the properties they want, based on the criteria they need.

Better yet, because the technology is already familiar, the free Property Dive app couldn’t be easier to use: Like what you see? Swipe right. Not the right fit? Swipe left until you hit your match!

“No one wants to waste time running around and viewing prospective homes that aren’t the right fit for their family. Property Dive lets you customize your search parameters so you find exactly the homes that suit your needs,” explains Jody Epp, VP of Operations with app developer Beadle Technologies, based right here on Vancouver Island. “Embracing the intuitive, smart phone technology we’re all familiar with, finding your match is easy.”

How easy?

  1. Download Property Dive online at the App Store and on Google Play.
  2. Enter your criteria for your new home – location, the number of bedrooms and proximity to schools, for example, whether it accepts pets, if there’s in-suite laundry, secure parking, and so much more.
  3. The smart matching system delivers the selections that match your criteria – browse photos and listings, and pinpoint home locations on the in-app map, then swipe right for those you like, left for those you don’t. New matches will arrive on your home as they come on the market.
  4. Contact the owner or manager, and arrange to view your prospective new home!

App users will find more than 100,000 current listings, drawn from existing sources such as UsedNanaimo.ca, UsedVictoria.ca, rental.ca and rentboard.ca, as well as from property owners and managers who can submit their available properties. While the app initially launched in Nanaimo, then Victoria, it’s now expanding to other markets, with fine-tuning to enhance the user experience, Epp says.
