I just saw a great application for the iPad that will interest anyone whose doing real estate listing presentations, or any other presentation for that matter. A company called Avatron.com has launched the “Air Display” app that wirelessly turns any iPad into an extra monitor for desktops or laptops. Users can orient their iPad vertically or horizontally and what’s running on your laptop will show up on your iPad. Pretty cool huh?
I immediately thought of our customers using PropertyFinder 2G. A Real Estate Agent doing a listing presentation can interactively change comparable sales criteria and produce new reports right there with their client. Just log into PropertyFinder 2G using your laptop wireless connection and show the seller what’s on your screen using this new iPad app. The display is much brighter and clearer than the standard laptop screen, but you still have the interactive ability you gain while using PF2G on your laptop.
We’re working on building iPad access for all our property research, property valuation and marketing tools. For now, this is a great work around.
Look for the Air Display app in the iTunes store, and keep reading these blog posts for product updates on new ideas for using DataQuick’s property research and valuation tools.
