5 Essential iPhone, iPad, and Android Apps for Realtors

It used to be that telephones were just for making calls and only Bill Gates and NASA had computers. These days, however, technology has become increasingly affordable, mobile, and handheld. With smartphones, such as the iPhone and Android, and Apple’s iPad, it is easier than ever to access and transmit information from wherever you are.

With that in mind, here are 5 real-estate related apps to boost your mobility and your efficiency …

Realtor.com Real Estate Search: This iPhone app allows you to search homes for sale, open houses, and nearby rentals. It also allows you to save listings, add notes to them, and email them or share them with clients over your social network. It accesses more than four million listings, with multiple photos, property details and open house information. Best of all, it updates every 15 minutes.

Evernote: Also for the iPhone, this application creates notes, photos, and voice memos and makes them accessible from your phone, computer, and the Web.

Dictionary of Real-Estate Terms: This Android app is the most comprehensive of its kind and provides an easy-to-use reference guide you can suggest to your clients or use yourself.

Remember The Milk: Available for both iPhone and Android, the Remember the Milk app is just what it sounds like. Not only does it make organizing and managing tasks easy and quick, it also sends you reminders via email, text message, or instant messenger. Add things to your to-do list with their Quick Add function and use the map to plan out the best way to be everywhere at once.

Open Home Pro: This iPad app provides a high-tech way to collect email addresses, phone numbers, and info about visitors to your open house. It also automatically emails them a thank you and sends you their contact and other info.

  1. I found this information helpful, and will look at the Open House app you suggest.
    Have a great day from Oakville Ontario

  2. Hi. I would also like to suggest Walkscore – which measures the walkability of any address and shows amenities nearby like shops, parks, transit, etc. I find it comes in handy during Open Houses or even property tours.


  3. Thanks for the mention of Open Home Pro. Be sure to join the beta for new release dropping next month. There is a small link at the top of the Open Home Pro homepage.

  4. I love the iHandy Carpenter. It is great for seeing if the floor or a wall is level or not. Two other apps I can’t live without are GasBuddy and flashlight.

  5. I would also like to make a suggestion; FileLinx.
    Send, Fetch,and Print to and from your PC with your Android. No cloud servers, so its private. No extra fees either. It works through WiFi,3G/4G so it does not matter where you are.
