Most people have a hard time getting through the day without their smartphones, so it comes as no surprise that more and more home shoppers are using smartphones and real estate apps to help them with their search for the perfect Chicago condo. At one point, there seemed to be a new real estate app everyday, but the pace has slowed somewhat. Still, there are a bevy of useful real estate resources that will help you find the Chicago home of your dreams! Here’s a quick look.
Mobile Search: Did you know that ChicagoCondoFinder.com provides a fully supported mobile search? We understand that many Chicago home buyers are on the go, which is why we provide free mobile search for Chicago real estate. You have the option of searching for all active properties currently on the market directly from your smart phone!
CalcsFree: Many real estate agents are using CalcsFree to quickly show interested buyers how much their potential mortgage would be in a home they’re touring. The app allows you to plug-in an offer amount, the taxes and insurance payments, even things like HOA fees and mortgage insurance, so you have a clear picture of what the monthly obligation will be.
PictNote: When you’re shopping for a Chicago condo, the amount of information can be overwhelming. Sure, you can organize it in a spreadsheet, but what about putting a “face” with all that information? Enter PictNote. It’s an app that combines pictures with notes and automatically geocodes the location to give busy home shoppers a reminder of where the home was located.
