Starting today, iPhone users now have the power of REALTOR.com at their finger tips. Whether searching for homes nearby or looking for listings in a particular neighborhood, iPhone users now have instant access to all details, including photos and contact information for the listing agent, with REALTOR.com for the iPhone.
“We’re committed to enhancing the experience consumers have when they’re searching for real estate on REALTOR.com,” said Joe DeTuno, senior vice president, product management. “Our new search capabilities for the iPhone are relevant enhancements that give consumers the full power of mobility and immediate access to REALTOR.com in a manner that fits naturally into their everyday lifestyle.”
Industry experts(1) predict consumers will purchase approximately 3.4 million iPhones this year, with an estimated 45 million units sold by the year 2009, making the iPhone potentially one of the most popular hand held devices used to search online for real estate.
A leader in wireless real estate search, REALTOR.com also enables consumers search capabilities through their REALTOR.com Mobile application on cell phones and PDA devices running Windows Mobile 5.0, including HP hw6965, HP hw6925, Palm Treo 700w (or Palm Treo 700wx), AT&T 8525, Cingular 8125, O2 Xda Stealth and Audiovox XV6700.

…if only the freakin’ iPhone was e-Key capable, I could tell you what I was getting you for Christmas. Sorry, no iPhone for you, honey.
Blame Apple & GE for not being able to get into homes in Austin, not me!

I am not sure why you would need the contact information for the listing agent since there is a big sign in the front yard with the agents number. Also, if the search capabilities are anything like the website, then the mobile application will end up being practically useless. That is why everyone is slowly moving away from realtor.com and going to other sites like Trulia.

IMO, if they were truly “committed to enhancing the experience consumers have” they’d overhaul the entire site and make it useful.

But what if they’re simply “committed to enhancing the public image of the experience consumers think they’ll get”?
