As of August 2011, 82.2 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones which is a 15% increase in the last three months.
Smartphones and tablets are expected to outsell PCs in 2012 by 14 million.
No matter whether you are an expert on smartphone technology or see no reason to trade in your old mobile flip phone, Mouse On House can help you reach out to an ever growing mobile
consumer base. Users of these smartphones and tablets expect an experience similar to their home or office computer except it can happen anytime and anywhere. In other words, a potential buyer could be at a coffee shop, waiting in line at the grocery store, at a youth soccer game or walking in a neighborhood searching for a new house.
We researched what functionality smartphone owners were using and how to best deliver our virtual tours to that audience. Instead of creating more steps to view our tours on a mobile device by developing apps, and making more work for you by keeping up with all the different versions, we made Mouse On House systems smarter. Just use the one unique URL created for your property site and our intelligent technology reads the screen size to deliver a full size or mobile version of your tour – it happens automatically!

We want to help you in addressing this growing mobile market, so when you order a Mouse On House virtual tour before July 29, 2011 we will give you a free sign rider with heavy duty magnets to list your unique property URL.
