Techno house hunters head to LJ Hooker

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - HOT PROPERTY -

LJ Hooker has launched a new app for smart­phones and tablets to make it eas­ier for prospec­tive house hunters us­ing cut­ting-edge VR codes.

LJ Hooker Port Dou­glas prin­ci­pal Michael Sam­son said home hunt­ing has never been as easy or in­tu­itive, thanks to the new photo recog­ni­tion fea­ture.

“You sim­ply point your iPhone or iPad cam­era at a prop­erty photo and the en­tire list­ing pops up on your screen right there and then,” he said.

“There’s no wait, no hunt­ing through mul­ti­ple list­ings or typ­ing in com­pli­cated web ad­dresses.”

VR stands for “visual recog­ni­tion” and does away with any need for QR codes, the black-and-white squares that ap­pear in many real es­tate ad­ver­tise­ments.

Mr Sam­son said the updated LJ Hooker app with VR Code photo recog­ni­tion tech- nol­ogy is avail­able in the Ap­ple app store, with an An­droid ver­sion is avail­able soon.

"Just use our app to take a snap­shot of any of photo of an LJ Hooker list­ing and you will go right to the web­page,” he said.

To down­load the free app, search for LJ Hooker in the Ap­ple app store.
