VociePad Announces the Release of "Talking" MobileIDX Websites for Real Estate Professionals

Louisville, KY, Aug. 14, 2011 --( Only one month after releasing its MobileIDX® Mobile Websites to real estate professionals nationwide, VoicePad announced today the addition of on-demand audio streaming on its mobile sites.

This added feature—an industry first—provides a better alternative than playing property tour videos on a mobile device, which typically result in long load times and pauses in video play caused by the video buffering process.

 Now, mobile web visitors can instantly listen to an automated audio presentation of property details in either English or Spanish in conjunction, while simultaneously viewing property photos from a web-enabled mobile phone.

To view a VoicePad MobileIDX website and listen to the streaming audio presentation, log on to (using a mobile phone).

Unlike an online video or virtual tour, VoicePad’s mobile audio functionality runs independent of photos and does not rely on Adobe® Flash® or other video platforms. Home buyers can easily select photos to view from a photo “carousel,” while listening to an audio presentation.

“There is simply not enough available wireless bandwidth to create a consistently positive User experience with virtual tours via a mobile browser,” said Randall Standard (top right photo) CEO and founder of VoicePad. “Our new audio streaming and image handling capabilities give the mobile consumer a property search experience that keeps them coming back to the mobile site, instead of driving them away in frustration.”

The CEO & Founder of the company, Robert Eisenstein (top right photo), began offering Public Speaking Appearances, and was quoted as summarizing the previous year as, "gigantic leaps forward in making Rent to Own an option that should always be on the table for both Buyers and Sellers."

Bigger Steps In the Coming Year

Eisenstein and HomeRun Homes are mapping out another powerful year, with some very helpful new projects on their agenda. Some of these projects include; making a mobile-version of the website (for Androids, IPhones, IPads, etc), adding additional payment options for customer convenience, creating a video tutorial series for the website, and creating a page devoted to the listings (Ads) RSS feeds from the website.

The company is also looking to add more countries to cover multiple different emerging markets (South Africa, China, Russia), and they hope to make further alliances with non-profit organizations to assist them in meeting their goals.

Eisenstein forecasts that with the further integration of Rent to Own as an option to buy or sell a home, "it could even stoke the fires of recovery in some languishing regional housing markets."
