Mobile app and SMS notifications allow users to stay engaged in home auctions through real-time alerts and the ability to place bids via SMS
LUXEMBOURG, July 15, 2019 – Hubzu, a leading online real estate marketing platform, today announced the launch of new mobile technology features including a mobile app and SMS notifications. These features allow Hubzu users to further engage and interact during the search and online auction phases by receiving real-time notifications regarding auction outbids, auction end times, foreclosure auction alerts, auction bid prices and new properties. Bids can now be placed directly through the mobile app and via SMS, an industry-first feature – providing users the flexibility they need to remain connected during an active auction.
The Hubzu® marketplace features more than 3,500 active properties available for sale, and the new mobile offerings provide additional options for Hubzu users to search, learn, bid and buy through the tools that they are most comfortable using. Hubzu’s data shows that more than 50 percent of users who visit the website are doing so via a mobile device. Through mobile app push notifications and real-time SMS notifications, users can stay in the know about relevant property auctions and the latest bids.

McClain, Senior Vice President, Marketplace Product for Altisource. “We have created a way for users to stay up to speed on the inventory of properties marketed on Hubzu and not feel as though they are tied to the website in order to make a bid.
