As I look across the street at the remodeled house that just sold, I can’t help but get the itch to start looking a real estate sites to see what other houses are available. With the weather getting warmer, it seems I’m not the only one with an eye on moving as tons of houses have come on the market in just the last month alone. So today we’ll take a look at some real estate mashups that have come our way in the last few month. Many of them take advantage of APIs such as Google Maps and Zillow.
