Apparently, there is a new way to search real estate listings — it’s called the iPoster, an interactive touch-screen kiosk in 6,109 Bank of America banking centers that allows customers to research property listings, as well as current mortgage rates. Local real estate brokers can list their properties for free.

When a customer approaches the kiosk, a sensor snaps the Kiosk into interactive mode. Simply touching the screen with a finger, a customer can sort through available properties by price, details, and location.

After narrowing the search, a customer can calculate the future payments on mortgage loans based on current Bank of America rates with an on-screen calculator, or contact the bank to ask questions about a loan. At any point the customer can access up-to-date contact information on local real estate agents and bank loan officers.

I should also tell you that Bank of America, err…. has a real estate blog. There goes my business.

Wait a minute, what’s going on here, last week I posted about how Re-Max is opening up offices at Stop & Shop and now banks are in the game. Hmm … should I open a real estate office at the local pub or perhaps at the Park Street T Station?

Just curious, would you search for Boston condos at a Bank of America branch or at a Stop and Shop?
