WellcomeMat, the online real estate video site, has launched a new iPhone app.

From a post on the company’s blog: "Do it yourself video just got a helluva lot easier and we are glad to be the company making it happen. The Flip camera got us one step closer to video being easy to do, acting as a hard drive for videos that are shot in Web-ready formats. Now people can post their videos straight from their iPhone: no chords, no format changes, no compression and no barriers."

I think this is a phenomenal step forward for real estate video — though I’d love to see it have even greater integration with some of the more real-estate specific search sites, such as Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, etc.

More important than Realtor-produced videos, however — and what really excites me — is that an app like this opens up the realm to anyone armed with an iPhone to create on-the-spot, near-real-time video assessments of properties.

Privacy concerns aside, properly curated and geotagged video reviews of properties could be a boon to online house hunters. It would take Google Street View to a whole new level.

Let the cameras roll!
