Like most other industries, Real Estate has embraced technologies. Life is now less hectic for home buyers, sellers, agents, investors and even tenants. In just a couple of minutes, someone who’s looking for an apartment rental can be able to choose from multiple options without having to visit the site. And here’s the better part – one can see detailed images of the apartment (or any other rental for that matter) and access descriptive information and pricing. This is all that you need to make a decision. Traditionally, you had to spend a lot of your time and financial resources visiting multiple properties so that you could compare them. Below is a list of the top free Android apps for this industry.
If you’re a home buyer, this is a must-have app. It comes equipped with a massive database of MLS listings, which is refreshed every 15 minutes to reflect new data. You’ll also get accurate information, thus saving a lot of your time. Redfin can be configured to deliver push notifications so that you’ll be aware any time a property is entered into the database, or when there’s a discount available. The built-in map allows you to custom-search houses in your area. You can save schedule tours or save favorites right from the app.
Zillow is trusted by over 10 million Android users and has received 5-star ratings from nearly 200, 000 real estate users. The application is a great resource if you’re looking to get somewhere you can call a home. You’ll be able to use the immense filtering options to specify information related to neighborhood, address, etc. You can even view a video walkthrough so that you have a better idea what the property is like. And in case you want to tour it, an agent is just a click away. The app also delivers an essential toolkit that includes access to foreclosure listings, mortgage calculators, and pre-approved loans.
Established in 2004, Trulia is headquartered in San Francisco. It’s an online service for residential real estate. The Trulia Android application is a useful tool for individuals looking for a place to call home. In 2014, Trulia was acquired by Zillow. Since then, the Trulia app has become quite similar to Zillow, sharing some features even. You can search for property using MLS numbers, keywords, as well as conduct narrow-down searches by filtering based on lot size, the number of bathrooms and bedrooms, neighborhood, etc. There are easy ways to organize results for easier consumption.
Founded in 2012, Zumper is the go-to tool for apartment managers and brokers who are looking to list their properties online. If you’re an apartment hunter, this app will guide you to the right place. It comes with a considerable database of over 1 million (and growing) apartments, condos, houses and more. You’ll be able to narrow down your search based on such factors as price, amenities, location, pet policy, parking, and many others.
This is a clever real estate app that allows you to take a picture of any property so as to get details such as interior design, value estimates, taxes, baths, lot boundaries and more. Property agents usually use Homesnap to track all the houses they have discussed with clients. The Pro version allows agents to network on the platform. The app works on Android smartphones running 4.0.3 or higher. You’ll also need to login before you can accomplish anything meaningful.
These apps are a great place to start if you’re a real estate seller, buyer, or someone just looking for the ultimate property rental in your city or town!
