Hamptons Inter-national has be-come the first UK residential estate agent to launch an iPhone appli-cation for buyers and sellers.

Users can look for properties and check prices by using a built-in search facility.

They can also access property details and pinpoint the location of houses they are interested in buying.

The application allows users to email details of homes and contact Hamptons directly.

Shakeel Barok, managing dir-ector of Hamptons, says: “The way consumers search for property and the media they use to do this is changing dramatically so estate agents must move with the times.

“The launch of this application reflects our commitment to driving innovation.”

The application is free to down-load from Apple’s App Store.

Rightmove launched a similar search application last August, while property information website Mouseprice.com unveiled a facility in November which provides house valuations.
