Today is day one for iPad sales and many are lining up at the Apple stores to buy one. Can this be a useful tool in your home search?
The Wi-Fi version thatâ€™s for sale today requires Wi-Fi access for an internet connection but later this month they will have a 3G version available that can be used anywhere.
OK, so now you have internet access on the road and how is that useful when you are cruising neighborhoods? If you have an iPhone you are already familiar with the wonderful world of â€œappsâ€! The iPad gives you access to the same â€œappsâ€ but the iPad’s screen measures 9.7 inches diagonally, nearly three times that of Apple’s iPhone, so it is bigger & easier to view.
What â€œappâ€ can be of use to me in my search? I highly recommend the free Realtor.com iPhone Real Estate App. It shows homes for sale in any city or in your current location on a map instantly. Then you can find out the listed price and any available pictures. You can even rate them and save your ratings.
So now youâ€™ve narrowed it down to your favorites and you can contact your real estate agent to set up a showing of those you wish to see. Happy house hunting!
