Voice Activated Property Search With Amazon Alexa
Stellar MLS is Committed to Accessibility, Inclusivity, and Equal Access to Data in the Real Estate Arena
New! Finding Homes powered by Lundy Inc. is a voice-activated property search engine available exclusively in Florida for Stellar MLS customers, your prospects, and homebuyers and sellers searching for homes in the Stellar MLS coverage area! Making real estate data accessible by syndicating it to voice on the Amazon Alexa platform gives blind and visually impaired individuals the opportunity to participate in the home buying experience with convenience.
Finding Homes is primarily designed for the blind and visually impaired, but may also be used by anyone who would like to search for property listings by voice. The application works by taking key data on residential listings and delivering listing information in small but informative sentences. On top of that, users can search by property address or set a search by telling Alexa about a property character like flooring type or the number of bedrooms.
Lundy Inc. is continuing to enhance Finding Homes and looks forward to sharing future versions of the application with Stellar MLS customers.
How Finding Homes Works With Amazon Alexa
1. Use an Alexa device or download the Alexa app to your phone or tablet. If using the Alexa app, make sure the app is open on your phone.
2. Start by saying, "Alexa, start Finding Homes."
3. Finding Homes will suggest search options, or you can ask about specific property features. Alexa will also send a complete list of available questions to your Alexa app so you know what you can ask. Alternatively, you can also ask for the complete list to be said out loud by the device.
