A mobile site for home-searching on the go
There are a lot of apps out there for people who like to check out home info from their phones while on the go -- Zillow's, Trulia's and Smarter Agent's, for instance. Now comes online real estate broker Sawbuck Realty, which says it has just launched the "first location-aware mobile real estate search website" at m.sawbuck.com.
Why a site and not an app? Sawbuck says it preferred to go with tech that "doesn’t require a download, opening a separate program to see search results, or a specific mobile platform." The site is designed to detect where you are by your smartphone's GPS.
My phone is not smart ("you stupid phone" is, in fact, what I often find myself saying to it as I'm trying to use it), so I haven't tried out any home-related apps. Have you? What's useful and what isn't? Do you use them as a tool for home searching or lookylooing?
