A new app for real estate junkies
Luckily, there's now an easier way to get your "how-many-bedrooms-and-what-does-it-cost?" fix, thanks to a new, free iPhone app.
HomeSnap (which is currently functional in 13 U.S. cities including New York) lets you take a picture of any building to instantly glean all sorts of useful info: what it's worth, when it was last sold, lot size, price per square foot, etc. Just stand in front of your desired building and take a pic. Then behold as the app uses a combination of GPS, MLS and public records to locate the exact address and pricing/space details. That to-die-for Park Slope brownstone we've been coveting, for instance? It’s $1.6 million and was built in 1894.
You can click for more information like number of bedrooms and baths, local school districts and similar homes that are on the market. Plus, if a building is for sale, you can often see interior shots and listing details.
With an app like this, who needs Selling New York?
