What is QR code?

QR code is short for Quick Response Code and it is popping up just about everywhere you look, being used in magazines, newspapers, billboards and TV commercials.

QR code is a cousin of the classic bar code you see on consumer goods when you shop. The difference - besides the pattern - is that this code contains a URL. Basically, it’s a hyperlink on paper – one that your smart phone can read & launch.

What this means to you is that this website and our listings are now easier than ever to access and revisit on your smart phone.


How do I read a QR code?

You'll use your smart phone to scan QR codes. You’ll need an download an app - just do a search for QR readers. 

Here are a few sites and searches to get you started:

· iPhone QR reader app search

· BlackBerry QR reader app search

Once installed, launch the QR reader app to take a picture of the code. The app goes to work and reads that image to translate it into a URL. Your smart phone’s browser launches, and the information you want is on your screen.
