Augmented Reality for Real Estate is in full swing. National US real estate brokerage ZipRealty released an updated version of its iPhone application that uses augmented reality to enable a person to look through an iPhone to see information about homes listed for sale and recently sold homes.
ZipRealty users may now look through their iPhone, via the camera, and see real estate data about the homes nearby overlayed on their screen. Clicking on a listing shows all details, including prices, interior photos, square footage and third-party value estimates. A “radar” embedded within the app quickly shows which direction to point the phone to see more homes for sale or recently sold properties — even if they are behind you — along with the same detailed information overlaid on the homes’ images.
