The internet has spawned several helpful apps for anyone involved in the real estate world. I found some to be especially helpful, both in locating and in evaluating possible investment properties. Below are some of the more notable ones:
- Bigger Pockets
This app contains searchable forums where most every question that you can think of has been answered regarding real estate investing. It is also a great place to meet other investors in your area.
- Zillow; Realtor.com; Trulia; Redfin
Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia and Redfin are great sources to see what properties are for sale or sold in a particular geographical area so that you can better determine the value of a potential investment.
- Hammer Point
With this app you can estimate the entire cost of your remodel or repair before spending your first dime. A very valuable tool which will help you with the various aspects of your project.
This is an invaluable tool. With this app you can take a picture of a property and it will give you the address, estimated value, local demographics and more. Simply take a picture and drive on. All the details are in your phone for later download.
I hope these resources will prove helpful in better time management and productivity as you pursue your investment goals for 2017.
