ATTENTION: HOME BUYERS... Download these apps today!


THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT!
Are you in the process of looking for the perfect home? The good news is that the days of sifting through stacks of newspapers is over… With technology, it is easy to stay organized in a busy lifestyle while maintaining your search for the house of your dreams. Take out your smartphone… Download these perfect “home buyer” apps today and never miss out on a listing to pass onto your agent, a possible opportunity or the chance to learn something new that will enhance your knowledge of the home-buying experience.
HOMESNAP If you’re checking out a potential neighborhood and stumble across a home for sale, this free app allows you to upload a picture of the home which will instantly display available interior pictures, selling price, and previous sale history.


REALTOR The Realtor.com app pulls in homes for sale from over 800 different MLS databases. Almost all of them are also refreshed every 15 minutes. That means you get pretty much up to the date information on properties that come on the market almost every hour. The Area Scout feature in Realtor.com also lets you view average values in specific areas so you know exactly what you can expect to pay and what you can expect to sell for. If you want the most up to date MLS listing in the most areas of the United States, look no further than Realtor.com.

In addition, the Realtor.com app has a mortgage calculator which shows information on mortgage products and allows you to compare options and effortlessly evaluate your choices.


AROUND ME Location, location, location! Looking for easy access to banks, gas stations, and coffee shops? Input an address, and Around Me will tell you the distances to those spots and more. And for the low, low, price of FREE, why not?




 
THE DICTONARY OF REAL ESTATE TERMS Buying a home can be confusing, especially if you aren’t familiar with real estate jargon. The app, which costs $2.99, has more than 3,000 real-estate specific terms to help navigate conversations with brokers and real estate agents.


CREDIT KARMA
Before searching for a home, it's important to be sure you can get financing (unless you're paying cash). A lot of realtors will even ask for a pre-approval letter from a bank before they will begin showing you homes. Credit Karma is a great tool that's available for free and can give you an estimated score that's provided by TransUnion, as well as an overview of how your score was calculated. What a bank sees may be a little different but the general consensus has been that Credit Karma is fairly accurate and generally within a few points. I pulled my own credit and then checked with my bank and both were within 10 points of each other.

This is life, simplified. Take advantage of your smartphone with these on-the-go apps!
