Parts of this app are accessible, but overall it is so patchy that it is impossible to get coherent or complete information from this app.
The problems are evident from the very first screen, which is a map showing map pins for any properties that are for sale close to your current location. At the top of the screen are icons to toggle this display between map, hybrid, list and camera. None of these icons are recognized by VoiceOver.
Along the bottom of the screen are 5 more buttons:
None of these buttons are recognized by VoiceOver.
Even if you manage to get to the information page for a property, VoiceOver will not read all of the page. The biggest problem is when trying to view sale prices, where the only thing that VoiceOver will read is the property address.
There are other issues, but the ones mentioned already are enough to make this app useless to anybody who relies on VoiceOver.
