I think this project will be fantastic as long as you guys pay careful attention to interface design. There's certainly a need for this type of application in the market, but as you'll see when you do the hard-copy proposal, it's difficult to display large quantities of information on such a small screen. You guys might consider text-to-speech...

You might also consider adding a "visual bookmark" feature whereby people can take pictures of houses they're looking at and store them for later comparison. I've been apartment/house hunting several times in my life, and I always forget the details of the first place 1/2 way through touring the second.

All in all, a cool idea and a great presentation.

I think this is a great idea that could really change the way house-hunting goes. I feel that if you could specify search options perhaps on a website that would then send them to your phone (so it would know the price range, sq. footage range, etc.) it would really be cool.

You did a great presentation. I especially liked the design of the slides. Very nice.

Very well researched project.

What about including something like the "Japanese bar code reader" in your service. You could do an easy template on your website for "For Sale" signs or even offer free signs. On the sign, there would be a code of which you can take a picture of and this would identify the object. Another idea would be to assign a simple unique number or code to every object, so that users without GPS or built-in camera could easily access the info of the object.

Great presentation guys!

So I was thinking that since you have your phone in the palm of your hands, it would be great if you could integrate a GPS-based Agent-tracker. Basically, depending on your location, you could get the local phone numbers of agents from Century21, ReMAX, etc. Century21 already has an office locator built into their website, so all you would have to do is associate the GPS Location with a zip code use it to pull data from their online database.

Good luck...I think this is going to be a great project!

It seems as though it would be hard to get the appropriate information from the websites that you are thinking of searching onto a interface that the user can interact with.

If sucessful however, I see this program as having a solid audience and being very useful.
