Home Owner 5/5
Redfin has been a great source for information on homes, thank you.
Overall a helpful tool 3/5
Redfin is a good app. Simple, transparent, and with good filters to narrow down real estate search. It falls short of a 5-star app because of two strange behaviors:
1. It doesn’t let you view all the homes for sale in a city based on Great Schools rankings. You have to zoom into a very small area for school-based filtering to apply. Until then, the filter simply doesn’t work. The way I like to do property searches is to look at an entire city (or custom area), filter on Great Schools ranking 8+, and then play around with the resulting options. The app doesn’t let you operate that way.
2. In select cities such as New York City, it requires that you re-enter your password to view the complete listing. Even after re-entering, the app takes you back to the restricted version of the listing as if you still haven’t entered the password. You need to kill the app and re-open it immediately to see the unrestricted listing. It’s a pretty annoying bug that affects me almost every session.
Lotto ticket 5/5

Thanks for opening your site for people who want to dream for one day winning the lotto will buy there dream house from you
In New Homes tab on selecting a home and going back takes you to top of the page 2/5
When you are in New Homes tab, you select a home and then you go back you expect the page view to be at the same home before you selected but it goes all the way to the top. Super annoying
Like doing business with Redfin 5/5
We listed our house with a Redfin Agent. She’s amazing!
First impression - not great 3/5
We scheduled a tour and did not receive a confirmation until the next morning at ~1:30 am. Then, 15 minutes before our scheduled tour, an agent texted and said the tour was canceled because the owners weren't home? Not a great experience...
School ratings removed 2/5
Terrible idea to remove school ratings from listings. I am forced to use Zillow.
Useful! But what happened to Open House Schedule?! 4/5
Great app for searching through MLS though not all properties seem to be listed. But the latest iteration dropped the “save to Open House list” link which was one of the best features and most useful. What happened!?!?
Something is wrong 1/5
When you click on a house the maps is not visible and when you click on a house sometimes the wrong house shows in the picture and when you go back, you go back to the top of the list and I am forced to scroll down to the house I was looking for
Awesome app 5/5
Redfin is just great! It helped me look through a lot of houses and I loved how updated it is. The minute a house is off the market, it updates the app. Very efficient and fast. Not a single bad thing about it! I totally recommend!!!
Good app 5/5
Love this! Very accurate!
Update to previous review👍🏻👍🏻 5/5
Thank you for fixing the “auto scroll”.. The annoying refresh back to the top of the New Homes section has stopped... Love this app!! It’s super helpful in finding houses...
1st time home buyer 5/5
This app is great I was able to get my home using this app.
Accurate information 5/5
I enjoy using Redfin for its accurate information. For example, its school rank is very accurate. It is not the nearby schools which may not be applicable to the property you are interested in. Its estimate of nearby houses is also very helpful.
Good app but too many glitches lately 4/5
By I Luuuuv Movies
Redfin has been the main app I’ve used to search for homes. I’m not sure why, but searching for homes has been more difficult than necessary lately. When I click on a home on the new homes notifications page and try to go back to the notification page, it always starts over and takes me back to the top of the page. Once upon a time, it would take me back to where I left off. This needs to be fixed ASAP because it’s very inconvenient. Other than that, the app is fine.
Ray Agoglia 1/5
By Ray from Rockaway NY.
I received too many emails and most of them did not come close to my criteria
I like the app but it I can’t find the filter for how much land you’re looking for.
Love it, but now New Homes feed messed up 5/5
New Homes feed has a bug in the latest version. Every time you click on a home to see details, and then go back, it goes to the very top of the list instead of going back to where you left off (like it used to in the previous versions). Then you have to scroll all the way down and pick up where you left off (last home clicked).
Hate the new update 1/5
I’ve been using the app with ease for the past couple years but hate the newest update. Every time I go back from seeing a house to the new house list it goes all the up to the first house on new home tab. Please fix! Thank you
Price Drop Pain 1/5
By Disgusted sleeper
I used to love this app until you added houses with a price drop into the “new” category! Now I have to shuffle through a bunch of houses I don’t care about to see any new houses. What a waste of my time! Thanks!
Annoying after latest update 2/5
When looking at recommended houses, if I select a house then hit back to go back to the list of recommended homes, it takes me to the top of the last rather than where I left off.
I found my home with Redfin app 5/5
It’s been about five years since I purchased my home. Thanks to apps like Redfin it give home buyers more power to search for property. I almost didn’t need an agent LOL thanks Redfin
Redfin Vs. Zillow 4/5
Redfin is a lot more accurate when it comes to market status, but Zillow is a lot more user friendly. I use Zillow to search and Redfin to verify status. If Redfin were to work on their user friendliness, there would be no competition.
Good app but navigation is inconsistent 4/5
Good app but I wish there was some consistent with all the screens. I’m a big fan of back gestures but that only seems to work with some screens.
Fastest updates on 5/5
it’s the most convenient,easy ,fast and durable app to find your dream house in sec !by knowing they have excellent agent and good offers
I’m living in Tacoma, Wa looking to transfer and relocate to Phoenix,Az
Great app 5/5
By gui ho
Really easy to use and understand
Good app ‘cept for 06/2019 issue 4/5
Been using the app for years and I like it more than others. Preferred home buying app. That said, since the last update when view new homes list, after clicking on and viewing a home in the list, Hit the back arrow to return to list (previously it would pick up where I was in the list) now it returns to the top of the list every time. Super annoying trying to scroll to where I left off especially when there are a lot of homes in the list. Please fix. 🙏🏻
New home feed in the last update is stupid 1/5
After last update, the new home feed will always jump to the very beginning after I return from the home detail page, and I need to scroll down the list all the way back to the last home I looked. I don't quite understand this change because it only makes me feel more inconvenient when I go through the new home feed.
Redfin app 5/5
By Ian dodgers
So much easier and most informative house search app I’ve used. In our house search and trying other house search apps we found that Redfin has the most accurate and updated pricing and home value than other apps we tried. Love how I can see the school, click to find the score of the school, trend in price for past few years, Redfin estimates value, etc.
Greatest App and web site for real estate 5/5
By Arc Obscured
I have been looking for years to purchase a place and anytime I go to another site to see if there are more things out there I am miss. I never find a site with more; just less. Also from an old friend who is a realtor, said this web site - when there was no such thing as apps - said this one updates the most from the MLS listings.
List jumps back to top after viewing listing 1/5
There has been a bug recently introduced on the iOS version where upon return to the list of homes, the app jumps back to the top of the list rather than where one was / most recent viewed listing. This makes the app hard to use and frustrating for the user. Please fix this!
If Redfin were a person 2/5
By Jelly o the month
Me: I only want to see single-story houses.
RF: Okay. Here you go.
Me: Most of these are two-story.
RF: Yeah, but they’re for sale and I really want you to buy a house.
Me: Can you just show me single stories in this part of town where I want to live, please?
RF: Sure, and I can even remind you when they become available!
RF: Here are some house I thought you’d like.
Me: These are nearly all two-story homes, and NONE of them in the part of town I want to live.
RF: But I really like them.
Me: But I don’t want...
RF: I’ll show them to you tomorrow, in case you change your mind. And the day after that. And the day after...
Annoying, irrelevant notifications 1/5
By 67 1of2
Why do I keep getting notifications about status changes on 750k and millions dollar homes? In my settings I’ve selected nothing over 350k!
Every notification I get does NOT have a photo. What’s up with you’ll? Please get these issues fixed!

By sr valenzuela
Es una aplicación muy buena y acertada porque nos facilita mucho las cosas muchas gracias
App commute is broken 4/5
Loving the app but the commute feature is broken
Lacks key filters 1/5
Not able to filter out split entry
Listings Not updated 3/5
Redfin has same issue as other reality apps, listings are not updated with their latest status, causing a waste of time and frustration since listening that appear “active” are not available anymore.
Best app for house hunting! 5/5
Awesome app! Best one I’ve found for finding a place.
Just a suggestion for new features:
Filter on commute - I don’t want to see any houses or get alerts for places with over an hour commute. It’s hard for people who don’t know an area to zoom around on a map and assume traffic patterns and in some places distance does not equal commute.
Monthly budget filter - you show HOA and estimated monthly mortgage based on the users input - most people budget monthly so would be handy to filter on this as well
Waiting 10 minutes for password reset email...not good.
Best RE App! 5/5
It makes me happy to know that Redfin is investing in their own software development.
Rent a home 5/5
Is it possible to rent a home at Redfin?
Recommend homes are way off 2/5
I love everything about this app except for the Recommended Homes feature. The app is constantly making recommendations for homes that are not in my search area and 100-200k over my price range. The Recommended Homes feature should use my saved searches to eliminate homes that are not applicable.
Decent app. Bad recent update 3/5
Why did you change the filters menu. It’s now made for kindergarteners, not power users. Very hard to go in and switch to “price reduced in the last day” and back to regular search sorted by newest.
Still a bug for at least 6 months where it will hang 50% of the time if you switch from “price reduced” to all listings over a map area that has a lot of homes for sale. Have to force quit the app and come back in and the correct listings will be there.
App with the most update information 5/5
Redfin updates their information within an hour of it being changed in RLS. This is much faster than their competitors. I love how you can put the schools on the map. I would love to be able to see information on different neighborhoods like what Trulia does. If they could do that it would be the best and most complete realtor app out their. I would also change how you get to your favorites so it’s more accessible.
Highly recommend to any buyers 5/5
I am buying my first home through Redfin and I always had this doubt on how the whole process is different from hiring a realtor, well the answer is simple, if you pick a realtor you will only be able to see choices they send us, and it’s more painful to have them beside you taking from one house to another and the more house you see the less patient they get.. however with Redfin the best thing I noticed was I can search all the homes listed by any realtor for free through their app and all I have to do is choose the location where I need my house and all lists pulls up automatically, once you select the house you will have a person from Redfin who will take you for the tour and they don’t get tired at all.. second best thing is Having Erick grande beside you, a person whom you can rely on and he has options for any troubles.. saying this Redfin provides you a deal money that you can use at the end of closing, I would recommend this app to anyone I know or would recommend to any buyers who had trouble buying their dream house
Just Easy to use 5/5
By Mrs Driel
I enjoy Redfin because the website is user friendly and just easy to put in exactly what you want and search the area!
