House price AR app

Picking up from where the last blog post left off and on some more Layar news, a couple of new AR apps of interest to prospective property buyers are the 'Sold House Price Data 2010' and 'Average Sold Price Data 2010' property information services AR apps.

Using these two applications users can see actual sold property price data overlaid on a street scene, all viewed through the camera of their mobile phone. Additionally, users can also switch to a Google Map view to access 'Take Me There' directions or even use a feature called 'List View' for easier overview of multiple properties. On top of this, filtering can be applied on a search radius up to 5km and include property types (such as detached, semi-detached, terraced, flats etc.).

The second app is free while there is a cost incurred for the first one as it provides data for individual properties rather than averages. Another great example of how mobile AR is being put to good use.
