The real estate business requires communicating with clients, accessing important data on the go, and constantly moving to new locations without wasting time. That’s why an agent without his phone is like a photographer without his camera. However, the full potential of your smartphone isn’t reached without a solid set of real estate mobile apps.
We broke down this app selection into several categories to cover every single aspect of a real estate professional’s work. It will hopefully provide you with a complete toolbox!
For agents to better manage the listings
This app is a guarantee for quality. It offers tons of listings to browse through with your clients and useful services you shouldn’t miss out on (Zestimate, Premier Agent, Mortgage by Zillow).
This app collects 5-star reviews and became the best real estate app on iOS. Agents can connect with leads fast and find useful data about their area. It allows for a smooth search both for professionals and private individuals.
This app specializes in commercial real estate. It provides hundreds of listings and comprehensive research filters to target the needs of your clients.
Champions of productivity for photographers and agents
Those take care of time-consuming tasks and let you focus on your priorities.
According to Zillow, floor plans are the 2nd most important feature on a listing. Unfortunately, producing them with traditional floor plan creators can be a hassle. With the CubiCasa app, you only need 5 min to take a video of a property. Then, the floor plan is delivered to you on the next day or 6 hours later if you take the option rush order, with the option of editing it.
Downloading the app and the first floor plan is free for all customers. From the second order, CubiCasa offers a free floor plan product for US customers: yes, you heard it right, you can scan your floor plans and customize them for free! For customers outside the United States, a starting cost of $/€9.99 will be added to your order. In addition, you can choose the following add-ons:
- Add fixed furniture (+$15/€10),
- Add GLA report (+$15/€10).
SLA is normally 24 hours, but you can pay an extra $10 for rush order and receive the floor plan in 6 hours.
This is not an app, but a web service that helps you manage all the apps on your phone. With Zapier, you can connect two or more apps and easily automate repetitive tasks. According to Zapier.com, a agent can connect with leads 90% faster by using their app, thanks to the total time savings.
