What is the history and popularity of the app?

RealtyPin was founded in Charlotte, North Carolina in June of 2011 and within weeks had grown to include more than half a million listings. Despite its rapid growth in its user base, it generated mainly media attention within the real estate sector itself. The stiff competition in the real estate market, particularly at the time of the app's launch, makes the marketplace a crowded one.

What are the differences to other apps?

The main difference to other real estate buying and selling apps is that home sellers can profit based on the amount of traffic their listing generates. RealtyPin shares a portion of the app's profit with the people who have listed their homes on the site, based on the amount of attention that listing has generated for the site.
