The Canberra Times has a story on St George’s new “housefinder” app for the iphone which is now operational in the ACT.
Launched by St George Bank and mobile platform specialist Insqribe, ”Housefinder” allows users to simply point their iPhone’s camera at a property that interests them to find out free real estate information.
St George Bank managing director for southern NSW and the ACT Andrew Moore said the Australian industry-first application would be a useful tool for people hunting for a house.
”With this new app, you can point the camera on your iPhone at a house or apartment in which you are interested and the screen will display current for sale or rental information, as well as data on what nearby properties have sold for recently,” Moore said.
The only problem appears to be that the data is reliant on Australian Property Monitors.
But for you real estate mavens who make a lifestyle of looking at houses I can see it being a bit of a must-have.
