Real estate agents are getting nervous. In the past, they kept a lot of information pretty close to their chests and spent half their time attempting to keep the buyer and seller apart to maximise their commission. And with rates often at between 5% - 6% that's a significant amount of money that they are trying to protect. But things are changing fast. Gone are the days when it was all down to neat little photos of available properties in the real estate window. These days, according to the National Association of Realtors, 92% of buyers are using the Internet to search for a new home and 68% of first time homebuyers are those dreaded millennials who are computer savvy and used to dealing with everyday actions online. What's more, they want things to be simple and cheap with as little paperwork as possible involved.

To address this, the real estate world is changing. There are now several online startups emerging that bypass the traditional agent (along with their exorbitant fees) and simplify the process to save you money. Open Listings is one such of these. This free new real estate app for iOS serves as an all-encompassing homebuying companion that delivers as much as the traditional real estate agent but for a fraction of the cost.
