It’s a sunny Saturday morning and seems to be the perfect buyer showing day. Lucky for you, you have plenty of appointments booked and are ready to face them head on. You’re calm and collected since you have these handy real estate apps to help you navigate your showing day:
Sitegeist gives real estate agents a run down of their location in a matter of seconds. You can learn everything from common demographics to the weather so you can help clients (and maybe yourself) better understand the neighborhood and hit the best selling points. The app uses sources like the U.S. Census and Yelp to find accurate information. Unfortunately, the app’s funding was recently cut on Kickstarter since it didn’t meet their goals. You can help bring it back to life, Here.
If you’re a real estate agent who lives in an urban environment, this app will be your lifesaver during a busy showing day. It’s a traffic app that unites drivers in your area to share real-time traffic and road information. If you missed the traffic report, Waze has you covered.
Google Maps is a classic choice for real estate agents who need assistance traveling the area. You can also imbed Google Maps directly into your website, so potential buyers can quickly find the home’s location.
As an agent, you’ve probably had to convert a few measurements or two. Vert is the anything and everything conversion app. Now you can confidently tell a potential buyer that yes, the claw foot tub in the upstairs bathroom holds plenty of water.
Potential homebuyers are bound to ask about the neighborhood, the restaurants, the schools, and anything else they can think of. Turn to Foursquare to get real people’s opinions and reviews on nearby businesses. A 5 star romantic restaurant down the street may be a big selling point for a couple.
Safety is a huge concern for potential homebuyers, and you can inform them about the area with the CrimeReports app. The app lets you search the area for everything from robbery, to quality of life and traffic reports. The data is good for the past six months to remain current.
If you’re showing your home to a family, GreatSchools is an app you’ll want to download. You can find reviews, test scores, directions and more for schools in your area. They maintain profiles of 200,000 public, private, preK-12 and charter schools and help parents compare schools based on growth, college readiness and more.
