Just yesterday, I received in my inbox a very exciting email from the folks at 1000 Watt Consulting announcing that for the first time, they are debuting their own app! The app is called How’s the Market.

According to the email,

“The goal for How’s the Market is to help agents get their street-level market knowledge out to prospects and clients easily, clearly and elegantly.”

Put more simply, it’s going to help real estate professionals quickly answer the question “How’s the market?”

As a Realtor, don’t you get asked that all the time? I know I do! As soon as I mention I work with in the real estate industry, it’s the first things people want to know about.

Brian Boero, co-founder of 1000 Watt Consulting posted this on the 1000 Watt blog:

“Street-level real estate knowledge is irreplaceable. No matter how many charts and graphs you can get online, there’s nothing more valuable than a well-informed opinion from a professional with experience in your neighborhood or on your street….If you give people what you know they want how they want it… well, that’s not just good marketing – it’s also great branding.”

I spoke to Joel Burslem from 1000 Watt (and founder of FOREM) who said this:

“The app is really designed to solve two problems. One, consumers really want what only Realtors know. Second, Realtors don’t have an easy way to share their knowledge. How’s the Market aims to fix this disconnect.”

1000 Watt says it’s goal is to launch the app by early summer. The app is being built as a web app for launch – HTML5 – so it will be available cross platform and on mobile devices. They anticipate building native iOS (iOS, iPad) and Android versions shortly thereafter, depending on demand.

For a limited time, they are accepting names into the wait list for their Beta.

Joel emphasized to me that the Beta is only open for a limited time, so sign up as soon as poosible! You can sign up on their web page www.howsthemarket.com. Since the launch yesterday, 1000 Watt has received hundreds of requests to be a part of their Beta. I already signed up and am looking forward to seeing this first app from this very talented team.

What do you think? Did you sign up? I love your feedback, leave me a comment below!
