Technology & House Hunting – The search has never been so easy!
Technology is all around us. It helps us in everyday life with just about everything we do. It’s hard to imagine a life without anything & everything at our fingers tips, isn’t it? Did you know that 94% of consumers start their home search online with 78% of those people are searching on their mobile devices? The real estate industry has kept up with those consumer demands by offering a variety of interactive applications for your smart phones and other mobile devices. Below are some valuable FREE apps that I use on a regular basis. If you’re thinking about buying a home, you’ll want to get these apps!
Homes.com – Instantly access nearly 4 million homes for sale, plus home values, mortgage information and more with Homes.com on your mobile device. The Homes.com real estate search application was the first to be available for all mobile formats.
Realtor.com – The REALTOR.com iPhone real estate app puts 3 million plus homes for sale and property listings at your fingertips. This app lets you access the same great property listings on the go that you would on REALTOR.com so you can find nearby houses and condos for sale wherever you may be. You can even find open house events nearby with the GPS-based real estate search. Moreover, it’s simple to remember which homes you have seen, like and dislike when you rate homes and create notes right on the listing. You can keep your notes and ratings private, or you can share your thoughts with your REALTOR® instantly.
TheRealEstateBook – Search millions of homes for sale across the U.S. and around the world while on the go. Search by location and find detailed listings with photos, directions and agent information. Call or email the agent directly from the home listing on your iPhone or use the map feature to get directions from your current location and drive by the property. Home listings are provided by RealEstateBook.com which is a real estate search engine that helps you find homes for sale and make smart real estate decisions in the process.
Zillow Real Estate iPhone® App – What’s that home’s value? How much is that home listed for? Is the rent too high? Stop wondering. Get answers on the most popular real estate app on the iPhone, which also includes a built-in GPS, plus an elegant mortgage app.
