Real Estate Just Got More Stylish With Digs By Zillow

Home pricing service, Zillow, just released a new app called Digs by Zillow. It has all sorts of stylish pictures of homes you can’t afford…but want to live in.

○ Browse images by space, style project cost, and key word
○ Collect and save images to boards. Add descriptions and comments
○ See project estimates for kitchens and bathrooms, based on your location
○ Share images to Facebook, Twitter and via email
○ See the home details of an image with Zillow’s home database
○ Follow other users, comment on images and contact home professionals

HomeSnap is a rather creepy real-estate app that allows users to discover information about houses it takes pictures of (what it’s worth, number of rooms, heating, etc).

The app uses location and probably compass data to figure out which house the user is looking at and has the user take a picture. The picture likely doesn’t aid in the function of the app. It’s probably just a reminder for the user. Once the app figures out what house is in question, the user is supplied with information like worth, school district, similar homes, prices of other homes in the neighborhood, and more.

HomeSnap gets its seemingly private information from the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), a service used by real-estate brokers. It now feels a little less creepy to know where the app gets its information. But the kind of information this app can retrieve just from compass and location data is still quite amazing.

Finding the right home isn’t always as easy or as fun as it should be. In years gone by, it was a stressful process of scouting out the best realtors and travelling far and wide for the best place. Now thanks to the wonders of iPads and real estate search engine Trulia, budding homeowners can do everything from the comfort of their sofa if they so wish with the Trulia Real Estate Search app.

Users can simply and easily search for homes that are for sale or for rent. Full-screen interactive maps are on offer as well as a plethora of neighbourhood specific details and high resolution photos. It’s possible to search homes via GPS or location entry and recently sold places are also easily viewed for research or simply out of curiosity.

All the vital information can be organised neatly with sorting functionality covering everything from price to age, number of bedrooms and bathrooms.

Map tools offer up some very useful features for those looking for a home rather than just a house. There’s community information such as restaurants, shopping areas and gas stations to give users a rough idea of what to expect from a prospective area.

Once the ideal home is made apparent through a search, users can then contact the listing agent through the app, saving hassle. Users can even share a prospective house with friends for a second opinion.

Trulia makes for a really attractive way of searching for homes. It’s simple to look through offering high resolution photos on one half of the screen with the other half covering the descriptive elements as well as the ever useful price history too. Whether looking for a new family home or simply checking out dream apartments, Trulia is a great way of looking around the local vicinity.

Trulia Real Estate Search is available now for the iPad and it’s a free download.
