The real estate market is getting into the video iPod business, if an announcement by
The Real Estate Home Show
is any indication. The Web site — a database of real estate listings from around the country — now offers MPEG-4 movies of certain properties that can be loaded on to a video-capable iPod.
Properties listed on the Web site that feature iPod-compatible videos now sport an iPod symbol next to their listing; realtors can then download the videos and sync them to the iPod using iTunes.
The videos display the listing realtor’s name, a written description of the property, then a video showing the property’s highlights, with information provided by a narrator.
