Best Apps For Home Buyers

“There’s an app for that!”  Tired of hearing that phrase?  Well, don’t knock it just yet.  When you are shopping for a home, you’ll want to know the smartphone apps that can help you the most.  Consider these tips from AOL Real Estate and CNET.

Best Mobile Phone Apps For Home Buyers

smartphoneFor starters, many real estate websites such as Zillow and Trulia have free mobile apps that offer much of the same functionality as their websites.  You can search addresses, contact me for information and find the estimated value of homes.

  • Homesnap (iOS; free) is another tool on the scene.  Take a photo within the app when you are passing a home to get the list price, square footage, number of bedrooms, heating and air conditioning systems, local schools and estimated taxes.
  • Realtor.com Real Estate App (Android, iOS; free) has an area highlighter feature if you are looking for a home in a specific area.  You can customize the search area by drawing a boundary directly on the map.
  • Crumb-Tracks (iOS; $1.99) once you have started your search use this app to keep track of the houses you have seen and keep a wish list of features you like.  Create files – with notes and photos – for each one.
  • The Home Buying Power app (iOS; $1.99) can help you calculate your down payment, ideal monthly payment, closing costs and more.
  • Photo Measures (iOS; $5.99) if you are looking to do some home improvements this is the app for you.  This gives you accurate dimensions of rooms and lets you include design notes.

Of course, all of these apps are a great place to start your search but nothing is as valuable as having an experienced Realtor working for you with your best interests in mind.  I am very experienced in the Naples Florida real estate market and offer you professional customer service.  There are many things to consider when you are purchasing a home especially in an area you are not familiar with and it is important not to make a mistake with such a large purchase.  Call me today at 239-601-3174 so we can discuss your needs and wants and narrow down your choices.  Naples Florida is a wonderful area with lots to offer but don’t get stuck in the wrong area because of misinformation from apps or unprofessional Realtors.

Remember, it is always toasty in Naples and you deserve your piece of Naples sunshine and a professional service oriented Realtor!
