The New York Times has recently launched a new service that provides access to real estate listings directly from a mobile device.
The service offers the ability for anyone to search for properties by entering specific property criteria (such as location, price or listing ID), send the property information to a friend’s mobile phone or link to a mobile Web page containing full information and photos (if available).
As mobile phone technology continues to improve, 3Dwalkthroughs.com believes the media platforms supported by mobile devices will expand. For example it is probably just a matter of time before you can send a friend a link to a 3D Walkthrough or 3D Rendering to be viewed directly from a phone.
Some of the newer mobile devices such as the Iphone will also allow people to experience interactive capabilities of products such as our Interactive 3D Floor Plans or 3D Walkthroughs. The launch of the NY Times mobile service validates the importance of catering to a mobile market.
About New York Times Mobile Search
From your mobile phone you can go to http://mobile.nytimes.com/realestate (or http://m.nytimes.com/re ). From there you can search for a real estate listing, either by typing in the listing ID or by selecting search criteria such as location, price, number of bedrooms or specifying only new listings or listings with open houses. You may receive up to 200 listings at a time, displayed 10 per page. Click “Next” or select a page number to access the next set of listings or click “modify search” to narrow your search criteria and results.
