Chase today announced good news for iPad users: It has customized the popular Chase My New Home app for the Apple tablet - and added features to make it even better.
More than 250,000 house hunters have downloaded the innovative Chase My New Home app to their smartphones since it debuted last fall. It's the only app on the market that guides users through the home-buying process from start to finish.
"As more consumers feel better about the U.S. economy, they are relying on Chase My New Home to help them find and finance their next home," said Lisa Foradori, head of marketing and product at Chase Mortgage. "Our app gives them the tools to make smart decisions."
My New Home's repertoire of tools -from searching home listings by ZIP code to calculating monthly payments- provide real-time help at each step of the home-buying process.

The new iPad app gives users more details about financing and about desired neighborhoods, including listings and neighborhood information - such as the school district and property history -- about a specific area.
Users of the iPad app also can access the new My New Home YouTube channel directly from the app. The videos offer practical advice from both homebuyers and the experts they will meet throughout the home buying-process. Viewers can learn about a wide variety of subjects from key mortgage terms and how to select the right real estate agent to what to expect at closing.
