Consumers Tweet for Information on Homes for Sale
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.–Homes & Land, a leading real estate publisher, has rolled out a new application that enables consumers to receive property information on their mobile phones through Twitter. Home shoppers driving by a property for sale can text a listing’s property address or MLS # to Twitter and access price, bedrooms and baths.

Homes & Land will also promote the Twitter application though its network of magazines, enabling readers to identify properties of interest in a magazine and text Twitter for more details.
