Find a home in your Palm!

The UK's leading Internet property website is now available on your Palm handheld!

Using Palm's Web Clipping technology, you can now search for homes on your Palm III, Palm V, VII ...

What this means to you is that no matter where you are or what you are doing you can check the UK property market to see what is available.
