A Few Thoughts on the Launch of PocketList

PocketList-IconPocketList launched today (see here).

Pocket listings is a topic I’ve written about several times, and think about “off market” dynamics on a daily basis since Horizon is essentially a marketplace for off the market hospitality exchange.

A few thoughts after playing with the app this morning:

  • I like the fact they verify buyers before giving them access to listings. I actually think they should go one step further and only let people who are pre-approved access listings. (Update: they do actually require proof of pre-approval).
  • On the property page, I want the map to be more granular as to where the property is.
  • Results should be filtered by neighborhood.
  • The “questions” is appealing, though as a user, I wonder who is going to respond to me. The agent? The seller? Someone from PocketList?

Particularly for those in San Francisco, would love to know what you think of the product.
