Trulia Is Making A Real Estate Search App For Google Glass

Google Glass may never become a popular consumer device, but that’s not stopping Trulia from making what should be the first real estate search app for Glass.

The real estate search engine revealed its plans to San Francisco’s NBC affiliate over the weekend and shared more details in a blog post Monday.

When available, the app will tap into property listings in Trulia’s database, look for those that match a user’s home search preferences, and send matches to Glass. And, the app looks like it’ll have some added functionality such as saving properties to a “My Trulia” account, receiving notifications when the user is nearby a matching property, getting directions and even calling the listing agent right from Glass.

It’s very similar to how most desktop real estate search sites work, which may not sound special … but it actually is. So far, most apps that are available for Glass offer a very limited version of their non-Glass service. That’s by design, given the nature of Glass itself. So it’s pretty unique to see a real estate Glass app that offers a fairly similar feature set to what home buyers might find on the Web.
