5 handy smartphone apps for property buyers
Jun 2019
 

With so much to organise and so many things that could go wrong it’s no wonder that moving house is frequently listed as one of life’s most stressful events. Fortunately, advancements in technology can make each step in the home buying process a little easier. Here are some of the most useful property apps.

                    

1. Around Me

If you’re looking at properties in several areas, Around Me is a handy tool for comparing what amenities are available near each home. Listing local restaurants, pubs, supermarkets, cinemas, hospitals, and other useful neighbourhood facilities, it’s a great way to evaluate what life would be like on a day-to-day basis should you choose to make an offer. 

Available on: iOS/Android

Cost: Free (with optional paid upgrades)

 

2. Sun Seeker Sun Tracker Compass

When the sun’s out there’s nowhere better to be than enjoying a cold drink in the garden – which can be a source of frustration if you buy a property that is permanently in the shade. The Sun Seeker app has both a flat compass view and 3D augmented reality camera overlay view to show you exactly which path the sun will take for each hour of the day, so when you view a property you’ll be able to see exactly how much natural light you’d be getting.  

Available on: iOS/Android

Cost: £9.99

 

3. Mortgage Calculator UK

Unless you are lucky enough to have unlimited funds, working out your maximum budget is essential when property hunting. The Mortgage Calculator app can tell you what your monthly repayments will be, how much you’ll pay in interest, and what will happen if interest rates suddenly increase. It can also locate the best mortgage rates currently available on the market.

Available on: iOS

Cost: Free

 

4. DocuSign

Buying or selling a house involves a tremendous amount of paperwork and it’s not always convenient to get to a computer. DocuSign is a secure way to eSign and send important documents from your mobile device. All the signatures are legally binding, and the app is compatible with PDF, Word, Excel, and Google Drive docs. There are even ‘sign here’ tags that show precisely where to sign or initial, making the process as stress free as possible.

Available on: iOS/Android

Cost: Free (with paid features)

 

5. MagicPlan

Not sure whether the house you’re thinking of buying will fit your furniture? MagicPlan builds a complete floor plan of a room using the camera of your mobile device. You can create 2D and 3D models of rooms to create virtual tours and add in furnishings to see how the finished room would look.

Available on: iOS/Android

Cost: Free (with paid features and subscription options)
