Specialist new homes portal What House? recently launched a mobile app dedicated exclusively to new homes.
The app is launched in conjunction with the governments newly announced "NewBuy" mortgage indemnity scheme which will supposedly guarantee 95% loans up to £500,000 for newbuild home buyers.
According to What House?, 2011 saw 11% of UK’s house sales as new build.
The What House? app is designed to target this market as well as luxury homebuyers, retirees and investors. The app "gives homebuyers quick and easy access to detailed information on thousands of new homes" and is available as a free download on iPhone, Android, iPod and iPad.
