House hunting extreme edition

ZapTXT is a web based service that allows you to set up RSS feeds to be sent to you phone via SMS. I just set up a filtered RSS feed from craigslist to notify me whenever a house that fits my requirements is listed. If it works then this could be a cool thing. I’ll update this post with the results.

I’m currently on the lookout for new place to call home. Using the internet has made this so much easier. With tools like Google maps, phimosis Google Earth and Microsoft Virtual Earth. Finding places and marking them down is easier then ever. Combined with craigslist and the Seattle Times classifieds I can quickly get a good feel for a place. If they have photos I can usually spot it in the arial or satellite photography.

I wish someone would write a Google maps hack that lists all the craigslist and Seattle Times rentals on the map with filters.

It seems to me all the data is there.
