As the popularity of text messaging continues to grow, we’re seeing more ways that entrepreneurs are monetizing it. Take HouseFront, a US start-up that’s currently in beta, that greatly simplifies the process of shopping for a new home. Drive by a house and text in its address to 46873 (spells ‘house’ on a phone’s keypad). A moment later, the complete scoop on the property is returned by SMS, from its estimated worth to the number of bedrooms and baths. Users can also post comments about the homes for others to see, as can a home’s owner. And consumers who are seriously searching for a new home can save each address on the website for later review.
