New Realtor.com App Makes Me Regret not getting a 3G iPad

Two reasons to love and be impressed by the new Realtor.com app:

1 – Draw – exactly that. Draw a search area, not limited by realtors’ or localities often vague, wrong or amorphous neighborhood descriptions

2 – Scout – homes for sale pop up as you drive around a neighborhood. (wish I’d gone 3G)

If you are a Realtor with an iPad, download this app.

If you are a consumer with an iPad, download this app.

“Draw” is what I have wanted for years.

I’ve been using this app for a couple days now, and everyone I have shown it to has been floored by the simplicity, the brilliance, the functionality, the (actual quote) “holy s**t, this is what real estate search on a tablet should be.”

Realtor.com team: Well done.

If you’re an MLS, build this app please. Zillow and Trulia – step up, because this is fantastic.

    No wi-fi is much better.. then get a 4g Thunderbolt phone and use it as a hotspot. The best way to cruise the interwebs on my ipad

    Jim, thanks for the post. I really love the draw feature as well–what’s really cool is you can also draw on just one street, rather than a larger area, so you can get really hyper-local in your search. Here’s a video that walks you through the feature: http://youtu.be/4UlIWz9NS_U

    Agreed Jim. They did a really good job with the app. The draw feature is killer.
    Like Dean says – just get tethering on your phone and you’re good to go!

    Please tell me that you traded in your iPad for a 3G one.

    In my opinion, anyone buying an iPad that isn’t 3G is totally missing out on the flexibility of the “instant-on” aspect especially when they are sitting with clients or are on the road.
