Real Estate Tools: Foreclosure API and Real Estate Widgets
NEW YORK, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The fast paced world of real estate is about to move even faster thanks to new tools for the web that have just been released by industry leader ForeclosureListings.com. The Internet based foreclosure listing service has just released the first ever foreclosure API on the market. This tool joins the company's current offering of successful real estate widgets already in widespread use on the Internet.
An Application Programming Interface (API) is a tool that allows software programs to interact with each other. It establishes a common language for the interaction so that different programs can communicate. The new ForeclosureListings.com API can be integrated right into an existing website by a programmer and will provide the ten latest foreclosure home listings for any zip code, city, county or state. For anyone with a real estate website, this is a great resource to have and use in conjunction with their site.
ForeclosureListings.com also offers a variety of real estate and mortgage widgets that have been highly rated by independent users. A widget is a small piece of code that can be added right onto any webpage without any additional programming. It functions separately from the rest of the page. The widgets currently offered from ForeclosureListings.com for real estate include foreclosure search boxes, foreclosed homes slideshows, most expensive homes by state slideshows, recently added property listings, and regional property values listings. The company also offers a mortgage rate listing widget and a mortgage calculator widget.
Foreclosure sales are a hot market right now with lots of potential buyers searching the web for information and deals. Initial reports indicate that the use of technology such as widgets to enhance their web presence is having a positive impact on realtors' business.
