Listings on the iPad



Dutch property portal jaap.nl loves to stay ahead of the curve. It’s constantly updating in its quest to take on market leader funda.nl – in fact it even launched a property search application to go with the release of Google Wave, Google’s vision for the future of email. So it’s hardly surprising that jaap.nl has jumped on the release of Apple’s iPad to show just how good listings can look on the device.

Google Real Estate – Should Agents Bank On It?

The news just over a week ago that Google was “entering” the UK/European market has sent the share prices of Rightmove and Seloger into a tailspin. Seloger dropped by 9% while Rightmove has plummeted a whopping 17%. Seloger has since recovered to its pre-news price while Rightmove continues to be significantly down.
