Buyer and Seller Resources

Top 10 Apps To Use When Buying or Selling Real Estate

Now that our phones let us access information right at our fingertips, finding resources about buying or selling a home is much easier. As Johnston County real estate experts, we like to keep tabs on what technology can best help buyers and sellers in our area, so we have a few suggestions about what apps are best to use in your real estate transaction. App

Free on the App Store and Google Play

As the official app associated with the National Association of Realtors, the app is rich with all manner of real estate data and helpful articles. Whether it's listings, financial calculators, or area information, the information you need is all just a thumb away.

Zillow App

Free on the App Store and Google Play

This app is mostly centric to the needs of buyers and puts over 100 million searchable properties right on your mobile device. You can also sign up to receive notifications for properties that you're watching and get price estimates based on market trends.

Trulia App

Free on the App Store and Google Play

Like Zillow, the Trulia app is also keyed in on buyer needs. Trulia adds the ability to use your device's GPS to find homes nearby while you're on the move and adds terrific features like crime maps and school locations.

360 Panorama App

Free on the App Store and Google Play

This app lets users stitch together several photos into an interactive and sharable picture showing a full 360 degrees of space. This is a wonderful app for home sellers and gives you an added edge in showcasing your property.

Skitch App

Free on the App Store

Skitch is a great way for users to customize photos and PDFs with boxes, highlights, arrows, and text. So for the home sellers who want to bring added attention to a new improvement (like cabinets or appliances) on their property flyers or MLS photos, this will certainly do the job.

Zillow Digs App

Free on the App Store

Zillow Digs is an app exclusive to Apple. This app allows home buyers to actually update the space they're viewing with their own personal DIY options and estimate the costs of the change.

Zillow Mortgages App

Free on the App Store and Google Play

Knowing how much house you can truly afford will save you a ton of money and stress in the long run (not to mention staying far away from a foreclosure). With Zillow's mortgage app, buyers can budget monthly payments and look around for loan quotes.

DocuSign App

Free on the App Store, Google Play, and Windows Store

After all terms have been agreed to between all parties on the real estate transaction, you'll find DocuSign will save you a ton of time. This app will help you get the necessary signatures to make your home sale official. All you need is your phone and your finger.

QR Code Reader App

Free on the App Store and Google Play

Maybe you've noticed them and maybe you haven't, but, they're there. In real estate, QR codes can be found on everything from For Sale signs to business cards to property flyers. With a code reader app on your phone, these codes can be easily scanned for quick information.


Free on the App Store and Google Play

If you've ever driven by a home as a potential buyer and wondered "how much is this one worth?", wonder no more. With the Homesnap app, you can take a photo of the front of the house with your mobile device, and a few seconds later the current estimated value of the property shows up.

This app also shows you the home's sale price, property taxes, and nearby schools. Wow!
