Get Mobile Real Estate Info on Any Home from Anywhere at Any Time, Long Realty Launches New Mobile Phone-Friendly Realty Website

Tucson, AZ, April 05, 2009 --( A recent survey conducted by the Pew Internet Project indicates that 62 percent of Americans now use a mobile phone or PDA for non-voice data related applications, or logged onto the internet away from home or work using such a device. When asked how hard it would be to give up a specific technology, 51 percent of respondents said the cell phone would be most difficult to do without, followed by the internet (45%), TV (43%), and landline telephone (40%). This represents a sharp reversal in how people viewed these technologies in 2002. A majority of adults under age 30 and Hispanics would find it hardest to do without their cell phones – and are much more likely to say it would be harder to be without a cell phone than to be without the internet or email.

Staying in the forefront of this innovative trend in cutting-edge technology, Long Realty is pleased to announce the launch of their new website specifically for the mobile user – This mobile website establishes Long Realty as a technological leader in today’s real estate market by providing convenient access to listings for any home anywhere at any time for both consumers and real estate professionals.
