A few weeks back, a couple of buddies were looking to rent a cheap apartment. This got me thinking. Well, with all the foreclosures in the country why would anyone spend time looking for an apartment and eventually receive the monthly shock dosage of “RENT DUE BY….”. You get the picture.
I threw together this simple app built with with Adobe’s AIR, Java and Google Maps to allow anyone using it to view foreclosure listings and interactively checkout that listing’s area demographics. The demographic data is pulled via web services from StrikeIron.
