Best Real Estate App Ever 5/5
By Matt C B
I get the fastest and most accurate information from Redfin. Very easy to use and sends me homes that I actually would be interested in.
Bad filters 2/5
Searches do not use the filer parameters. When i click on “must have pool” the search show houses with pools.

Wrong property glitch 1/5
Uninstalled Redfin and using Zillow now. Ridiculous how this shipped to production with broken core functionality.
Edit: Saw another review mentioning realtor.com app. Tried it out and like this better than Redfin or Zillow. Thanks man! No reason to use Redfin now.
App glitch 1/5
Click on one property and you get another?
This app is so glitchy. I have an iPhone 11.
Can’t access first property in list because you have to select the property above the one you want to view to see the one you want.
What happened to the neighbor maps where you could view crime and noise? Oh right that’s Realtor.com
Issue with carousel picture view 3/5
By JazzMan in St. Paul
Overall this is a very good app. Recent updates have made selecting a property weird.
When the map is on the left and the carousel of thumbnails of properties is on the right, if you select with your finger a property (i.e. click on the thumbnail) the system pulls up the property after the one you want.
If you click on the street address, then you get to look at the property you actually wanted to see...
iPad issues 3/5
By Ere I am
Won’t remember sort preferences, as has been noted by users for years. Now showing many listings in the list that aren’t actually there; clicking on them shows a different listing. Clearly nobody at Redfin actually uses this app.
can’t exit from map view 1/5
there is a bug that when you enter the map view from a specific listing , and switching to satellite map mode, and try to exit the map, and there is no back button or swipe to go back to the listing detail

No longer showing sales price 1/5
Redfin removed the sales price for properties now it only shows list price. This was the best feature of Redfin. Other apps have more listings and better search filters.
Easy Search 5/5
Love this app. Helps with everything I need to do when I’m looking for my exact search.
Love looking on this site as a realtor I am on the run and always use the site to see what’s new on the market.
Hate having to rotate my iPad to landscape to use it 2/5
It’s shouldn’t be rocket science to provide a portrait view in this day and age. There are times when physically rotating your iPad isn’t something you want to do.
Good app 5/5
By Manin dark
Very good app
Hard to organize homes 3/5
Your options are “favorite” or “not”. I can’t find the “add notes” section sometimes in listings. Do the sections change between homes!?
Review love the app very helpful on finding the right home 5/5
Great but with issues 2/5
I used to love this app but now I’m starting to get very frustrated. A year ago I was looking for house in another state but ended up moving June 19 to a different state. Today is May 2020 and I’m helping a friend look for a house. I have tried everything to stop getting updates on houses from the first state but nothing will stop them from showing in the update feed. I have emailed support but they are zero help and tell me to unsubscribe to the email. I’ve said 3 times it’s not through email it’s in the app. Anyway on to the next issue. My friend and I are connected as co-borrowers so we can share our favorites and use the comment section. Doesn’t work! It shows her name but she can’t see my comments and I can’t see hers. I get emails that show her comments but nothing under the comment section or in the shared favorites of this app. I don’t even see the houses she has saved. This app used to be the best and now it’s gone to crap. I’m really sad because a year ago I loved it.
Last update made it worse. 3/5
By V W Condo owner
Since the last update the app not opening when clicking on the listing on notification emails.
I just downloaded it 3/5
So far, my issue is, you have to view it in landscape mode. Not everyone wants to hold their iPad like that. As I use it more, I’ll edit my review, better or worse.
App no longer shared? 1/5
I signed on this morning and got an alert that “the app is no longer shared with you. To use it you must buy it from the App Store.” I go to the App Store and there’s no update, it just has me “open” the app. Then it diverts the the error again.
Great Application 4/5
Only thing that needs improvement is the lakefront feature. Still doesn’t sort out non lakefront properly as it should.
Filters need updating 4/5
When I filter my search to include properties with pools it is really frustrating that properties with community pools shows up. I want a house with its own pool and I feel like listing agents are cheating the system by adding a town house with no backyard to the pool list.
I love it but it drives me nuts. 4/5
I love the app and all the features that it has. Except one. I get notifications on houses to far away from me. I want to be able to se a perimeter on what towns I want to get notifications for. It’s absolutely annoying when I see there’s a new house but it’s no where near me. Please add a feature to accommodate this issue.
Redfin agent sees your viewing history 1/5
I tried to sell my house through Redfin and all of a sudden I have an agent assigned to me. Ok. But apparently they can see what I’ve been viewing and worse you can’t remove this agent!
I liked Redfin until this nonsense. Now I have to delete the app or else this agent can snoop on my viewing history.
Update: so... the developers added some “new feature!” for virtual house viewing, whatever that means. Now all of the places I viewed are dark green rather than light green. I wonder sometimes which apps are outsourced. It’s like... you had one job. Test before you release, maybe? Care about your product?
Trulia’s Upgrade 5/5
Much better content and information than Trulia, would like to see street view or google map integration

Great information 5/5
By Island Flier
I’m keeping tabs on Hawaii real estate while living on the mainland.
Great App! 5/5
I’m notified as soon as houses hit the market! Pictures and descriptions are on point. Love the app!
Great Home Review Site 5/5
By Bob Lerash
Easy to use, great options!
Great savings 5/5
I liked very much to work with Angela. The real state agent was easy to work with. Very accommodating
Redfin is the best 5/5
Best app for home purchases
Love the app 5/5
Has up to date information, thanks!
Values out of date 1/5
Redfin have not adjusted their home values for years so it is totally useless. Photos are taken from Zillow. Use Zillow or Others
Stop with the pop ups 2/5
I’ve used the app for about five minutes, and I think I’ve had to close more than 5 pop ups. Really? Do you really want me to rate your app based on 2.5 minutes of experience with it? Oh, and it’s crashed twice already.
Love it 5/5
By Hip Hop Realist
Easy to use and have a large listing
It’s ok but 2/5
not enjoyable to use since it fails to have a vertical viewing option meaning you must use two hands.
Best housing App! 5/5
Found the best deal thanks to the Redfin app!
Excellent app 5/5
Love Redfin and love the app too. I use this app the most every day and the app is easy to use. Redfin in general is great as well. Have seen plenty of houses and agents are friendly, helpful, available.
Doesn’t load photos 1/5
App does not load photos for the houses.
Update has killed this app 1/5
I used to love this app but since the upgrade
1. Filters no longer work. I get listings from places far outside my filter radius
2. Clicking on pictures makes the app crash or they simply take you to a white screen
3. Pictures will simply not load.
I guess it’s time to try Trulia, Zillow, or Realtor
app abuses badge icons 1/5
This app goes out of its way to not show up in notifications settings but then sets badge icon every time you open the app. Since it does not show up in notification settings it cannot be disabled. I reported it via their support a couple of years ago and got a generic response. I reinstalled in 2020 and behavior is still the same.
Dariush Sedigh 5/5
Needs more listings all Realstate’s land houses farms.
My go to app 4/5
Update: 5/12/20: Thanks for fixing the commute feature. Still has issues with certain homes coming up that I don’t want on my feed but the commute feature keeps me using Redfin as my go to app.
Update: 5/10/20 they fixed the commute feature and I was thrilled and then I don’t know what happened, I updated the app yesterday and now it won’t input the commute address at all and as other reviews state the feedback drop down arrow doesn’t work so you can’t send feedback. Come on Redfin! Get back on the ball.. you are a great app, prove it to us!
I love Redfin’s concept to real estate. It’s a great and innovative set up but the app just can’t to get it together. We’ve used them to buy and sell and love them so it’s frustrating.
Now they just got rid of the last remaining feature that made me prefer their app to other RE apps: “the commute” feature. You could save an address so every home showed automatically how far the selected home would be to the address. Saved me so much time! Now it’s gone for some reason!!! The reason why it’s also such an issue is because I always get search results that are completely NOT based at all on my saved searches. I can’t get rid of these homes as they don’t have anyway to remove a city from showing up. So I get homes from a different state even though I haven’t looked there for more than a year and a half. There is no feature anymore to say “don’t show from this area or this type of home”. For example, in my filter I want a house that has at least 4 bedrooms and at a minimum/maximum price. Why do I keep getting homes with 2-3 bedrooms at prices different than my filter range? What’s the point of the filter then?
Lastly, some houses show up as “off the market” but only here on Redfin. The other RE sites are showing them as active. Makes me worried we’ll miss a listing because of that. Please fix these extremely aggravating features!! I want to give Redin 5 stars but can’t at this point.
Location bunching stinks 1/5
Using much of the app is pretty easy, but when you try to decrease the resolution of where you’re searching so that you can see over a wider area, the prices and locations leap up to bunched numbers that make the app nearly unusable for me.
House hunting is no easy chore, and this app didn’t do much to help me in it.
Get rid of the bunching.
