Real Estate Technology in 2011

By FrederickBooster

Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes

Remember when cell phones were the size of bricks?  Chris bought his first mobile phone the first year we were married… 25 years ago. (yes, that’s right, it’s our silver:)

It cost $1500 and we financed it!  (Check out this Seinfeld clip if you need a funny reminder about 80′s technology.)

Wow, have we come a long way.  Here is a list of some of the best technology for Frederick home buyers and sellers:

There are several iPhone and iPad apps that make house hunting really easy.

  • Home Search features instant access to the most accurate and up-to-date real estate listings. Updated every 15 minutes, it shows homes for sale in any city on a map instantly with multiple photos and details.  Like most online search tools you can sign in and save searches with your own criteria. FREE
  • has a Mortgage Calculator App which has 4 useful calculators:  Buy or Rent Comparison, Debt to Income, Monthly Payments, and Refinance. Handy.
  • WalkScore has an app that gives you the Walk Score from where you are standing.
  • My favorite app is Around Me.  It let’s you know what is closeby.

Our own MLS Finder works well on an iPad. Later this year they’ll be coming out with a version that works on iPhone and Androids. I’ll be sure to let you know when that occurs.
