We live in a digital age. Everything is moving online – including the real estate market. Nowadays, buyers, sellers, and agents tend to view homes, arrange meetings, and make bids from the comfort of their computers or smartphones.
We’ve put together this list of the best real estate apps so you can pick the program with the features you need to succeed.
Best Apps for Buyers
Here are the best apps to download if you are trying to buy a home:
The Trulia app almost makes house hunting too easy. You can easily look through multiple listings and learn about each home’s school district, community safety standards, and average monthly mortgage. You can even schedule an open house from right inside the app!
There’s also the ability to use voice controls when navigating the app, as well as chat with agents inside in the app. This way, all of your communication about buying a home is in one handy location. You won’t have to search back through your emails or texts to find the information you need.
Free and you can find it for both Andriod and Apple devices.
The Zillow App is one of the most popular in the real estate industry and once you begin using it, you will understand why. It makes your search for homes one of the easiest parts of the entire process. This is because it is a highly interactive app. This makes it easy to find great homes for sale in the area.
It has an awesome tool called “Zestimate” which allows you to access the worth (or monthly rent!) of any property in the USA. It is kind of like a built-in mortgage calculator.
It is also very easy to share listings from Zillow, so you can send them to friends and family with ease as you search for the perfect place to call home.
You can search for all kinds of homes on Zillow. You can search for houses, condos, townhomes, and more. You can also easily use the app to search by features. So, if you want any of these properties, but with a certain amount of bedrooms or bathrooms, you can find them – no problem. You can do all of this without even needing to go to an open house.
Available on both Android and Apple phones.
Real Estate by Smarter Agent
This app is a really great place to gather and store data as you hunt for a house. This is because there are so many different ways to customize your search. For example, you can search by recently sold homes (to get an idea of the going prices and local market), homes in a certain area (if you really, really love a certain neighborhood), and homes by certain features (hello number of bedrooms and bathrooms).
It really makes the house hunting process significantly easier with features like GPS location. When you turn on location permissions in general settings, the app can pinpoint your exact location down to the city, street, and zipcode. Then, you can look for homes nearby.
If you find a home you like, you can share it directly from the app over text or email with your family. Want to look at a home again later? You can save it in the app for quick access.
Get it on Android or Apple.
Best Apps for Sellers
If you are a qualified seller’s agent, here is the perfect app for you:
The Realtors Property Resource (RPR) App
Only licensed Realtors can access the RPR mobile app, making it exclusive and extremely useful at the same time. The app is owned and operated by the National Association of Realtors, an organization that is constantly making updates and improvements to it.
Home sellers are always on the go, so all of your records can be stored in the app. This way, you don’t have to worry about being in your office to take a client phone call. You can access any information they might need anywhere at any time.
You can also send branded sales reports to clients directly from the app.
Available on Apple and Android devices.
Best Apps for Investors
If you are more interested in purchasing commercial real estate, or even residential real estate to turn a profit, then you are going to be more interested in this app instead.
Here is a sneak preview:
10BII Calc HD Financial Calculator
All good real estate investors are going to need a good calculator! The 10BII Calc HD Financial Calculator is one of the best ones out there. It is widely available. You can buy it for Android, Apple, and Windows. You can use this app to track your monthly expenses to ensure you are on track to turn a profit.
