About Float

Float was created by an award-winning, marketing and design team from the Pacific Northwest. Responsible for successfully marketing thousands of properties in this tech-savvy region, they knew how important it was to utilize cutting-edge technology when searching for, buying, selling and renting homes. With the release of iBeacons in 2013, the Float team set out to create an easy-to-use tool for house-hunters, renters, real estate agents, builders and property managers to view and tour homes more effectively.

Here’s how it works. By simply walking in range of an iBeacon, Float allows you to view a home’s photos, features, neighborhood details, sales (or rent) price and more on your phone or tablet. A Float Beacon might be placed on a sign or next to a call box allowing you to see the home 24/7 – even before requesting an appointment. When you do tour a Float Beacon house, additional beacons inside the home guide you room-by-room, much like an audio-guided museum tour, explaining important features you won’t want to miss.

Float starts the conversation.
