IDreamAgent, a new iPhone and Web application focused on helping home shoppers organize their favorite for-sale properties, launched this week. The app, available on the Apple App Store for $4.99, was designed to streamline the homebuying process and help a home shopper drill down to the house he or she wants to buy, said a iDreamAgent representative. "We aren't replacing the agent with this application. It is meant to help manage the data around the homebuying process," said a company representative.Users can add details for each home they're interested in, like asking price, photos they take of the home, and notes for the home as a whole and for specific home features, such as living rooms, kitchens, etc. Users can then share the home info by email. The app also gives the user the ability to create a Web page for each personalized listing, which can be shared via Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms.Contact Inman News: Email Letter...
