House hunting can be an incredibly daunting task, but in this day and age there seems to be an app that makes just about anything easier. Rochester, NY’s leading real estate attorney, Steve Butcher Sr., has a few favorites when it comes to finding the perfect home. Consider downloading the apps below to help you begin your home-buying journey.
3 Best House Hunting Apps
It’s hard to find a house hunting app as comprehensive as Zillow, which is why it earns the top spot. The Zestimate® feature is the app’s most defining component, providing house hunters with home value estimates on listed houses across the country. Zillow’s list of features goes on, including mortgage and interest calculators, loan quotes completely personalized to you, and new listings and prices decrease notifications, ensuring the best bang for your buck.
With a simple photo of the listed house, Homesnap supplies extensive details about the home garnered from public records and other listing services such as sales history and information on the current market. The app includes a few additional features brought to you by its developers, such as a report on the home’s investment potential and a messaging element that allows photos to be saved and shared with those involved in your house-hunting operation—for example, your real estate attorney or agent.
3. Doorsteps Swipe™
Through this app, create a highly personalized profile that is based on preferred home features and also reflects your current phase of life. For example, whether you are a single, first-time buyer or married and ready to expand your family, the app narrows down housing options through your listed preferences and presents houses for sale that fit the bill. All you have to do is swipe, “saving” or “passing” houses with a simple finger movement.
While these apps offer an immense amount of convenience for those at the beginning of the home buying journey, legal services should be considered before any transaction takes place.
