My Husband’s Love Affair with the REALTOR.com iPad App

"I know it's accurate."
Before using the app, my husband used the property search on the REALTOR.com website. Why? Because somehow (and I swear it wasn't me), he picked up the concept of MLS data being the most accurate data, and that this is where REALTOR.com obtains its data. I shouldn't be surprised – he's an incredibly intelligent guy, and tends to do his research before making any decision (particularly big ones like buying real estate).
He says he's been "disappointed" by Zillow. He found great properties listed there that were actually no longer on the market, and his poor heart was broken on several occasions. He's also seen incorrect prices– and doesn't want to be wondering if he's missing an important $50,000 price drop.
