Markets in Everything: Zillow iPhone Ap
Imagine strolling through your neighborhood and, with a glance at your iPhone, finding out instantly how much just about any home you walk by last sold for. What if your iPhone could also display your location on a map that pinpoints nearby homes for sale and any that have recently changed hands? That's the promise of the new location-based iPhone application unveiled today by property valuation and listings giant Zillow.
Users can pull up details on just about any home they are interested in -- not just those that are for sale. "Basically what we've done is put the power of Zillow into the palm of your hand," Zillow COO Spencer Rascoff said. "Pushing the baby stroller around your neighborhood will never be the same."
