    Why print out all of those search results when you can have them on
    your mobile phone or in your Dash GPS car navigation device?

    Today, real-estate search site Trulia rolls out mobile versions on the
    iPhone and the Dash.
    (also a Blackberry version I think.)

    Trulia's New iPhone House Finder
    The free app lets iPhone-toting house hunters find listings and open
    houses in their vicinity. But it's not the only smartphone real estate
    tool

    House hunting? Forget the listing agents and classified ads. Now you
    can find homes for sale with a few taps on a smartphone.

    Trulia, one of the Web's most visited home listing sites, on Aug. 25
    is introducing a tool available on Apple's (AAPL) iPhone that can
    locate all the listings and open houses in a user's vicinity.

    The free software application uses navigation technology to summon
    data and displays the results on an interactive map. It lets users
    call up such information as price, photos, square footage, and number
    of bedrooms. Another tap of the screen sends a call or e-mail directly
    to the listing agent. "It's all about convenience," says Trulia CEO
    Pete Flint.

    Trulia is also releasing home listing applications for Research In
    Motion's (RIMM) BlackBerry, Samsung's BlackJack, and Dash Navigation's
    Dash Express, which provides navigation services using GPS technology.
    Trulia's service will also be available on various mobile operating
    systems, and on devices made by Sony Ericsson and Nokia (NOK).

    Competitive Playing Field
    Trulia, which boasts information for 70% to 80% of the properties on
    the multiple-listing service database of real estate listings, will be
    the biggest listing site with an iPhone application. But it's hardly
    alone. FrontDoor.com says it will introduce an iPhone application
    later this year that not only searches nearby listings, but also
    integrates video and information about what it's like to live in a
    given neighborhood.

    StreetEasy.com's two-week-old iPhone application, which provides
    location-based for-sale listing information for New York City, has
    been downloaded about 5,000 times. The application was designed with
    New Yorkers in mind, letting surfers see available properties not just
    in a neighborhood, but also in a given building.

    Coming versions of StreetEasy's iPhone software will make it possible
    to search for open house and broadcast observations about specific
    buildings. "People are experiencing real estate by walking down the
    street; they're not experiencing it in front of the computer," says
    Dawn Doherty, StreetEasy's vice-president of business development. "It
    takes people involved in searches one step closer to the tangible
    product."

    Greg Swann, a broker for BloodhoundRealty.com in Phoenix, says that
    while the Trulia application may undermine the role of buyers' agents,
    it will probably be a boon to sellers' agents and customers. He's
    quick to add that as empowering as the iPhone apps may be for buyers,
    they can't replace the advice and negotiating abilities of a good
    Realtor. "Anyone can change their own oil," Swann says. "But then why
    is there always a line for Jiffy Lube?"

    And, as if I needed no further evidence of why a "WinMo" magazine would
    morph into an iPhone magazine (see other thread) you just highlighted the
    reason yourself! Your Digg.com link called "Using an IPHONE to find your
    dream home" links to a Newsweek article titled "Using a CELL PHONE to find
    your dream home!" (Emphasis mine in both cases.) Whoever "dugg" it,
    apparently thought it needed a little "punching up" iPhone style.

    (The actual linked article mentions using iPhones and Blackberries for
    real-estate hunting equally, BTW.)
