February 4, 2013

In today’s competitive Real Estate market, it is essential for agents to stay current with the available technologies that help them grow their business, stay organized, offer exceptional services, and most importantly, set themselves above the rest!  Mobile technologies are completely transforming how consumers experience the Real Estate transaction.  There are a number of applications that can help you organize your real estate business, make your life easier and increase productivity.

Stay Organized:

Docusign: This App allows you to send, sign and save contracts and other documents on the go with any device. It is a huge time saver and productivity booster!

Evernote: As the second best productivity boosting App, Evernote can save inspection reports, client notes, photos, articles and almost everything else. The information is stored on the Cloud for easy access, and it includes a powerful search function.

Clear: As one of the most user-friendly and more popular to-do Apps, Clear focuses on a visual interface that allows you to color code tasks. You can easily add a task, delete a task, or check off an item.

Contacts Journal: This App is a mobile CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system. It allows you to mark a contact as private and enables you to separate clients from your personal contacts; set to-do’s for your clients; set reminders and make notes about each contact.

Diverse Solutions Mobile IDX: Allows easy searching of the MLS from anywhere. With this app, it is easy to contact the agent and find homes in the neighborhood.

Great Apps to Use for Photographs, Home Tours, Videos and Property Information:

HomeSnap: By just taking a picture, the GPS in your phone can get instant public information and data on properties.

HaikuDesk: With HaikuDesk, you can create listing and business presentations for your clients to review. It is impressive to clients and is generating more listings for its users.

Magicplan: Creates floor plans and room sizes for listings when you take interior pictures of the home. It exports pictures into PDF, JPG and DXF formats, so you can post images or design interactive floor plans.

Videolicious: An easy way to create a home tour or video, Videolicious allows you can take up to ten videos. After viewing numerous homes, clients might forget which home had certain attributes. Agents can film homes as their Buyer looks at them, and can later send it to their client as a refresher about the house.

360 Panorama: This App is perfect for those large rooms! It creates panoramic photos of any subject in Real Time, a great commodity for listing photographs or advertisements.

Camera+: In order to take better photographs, especially in low light conditions, Camera+ adds additional controls to your phone’s camera.

Simplify Your Communication:

Slydial: This is a great App to use when you need to relay important information to a client, but don’t have a lot of time between meeting another client. With Slydial, you just dial 267-Slydial, follow a prompt, dial the client’s number and go directly to their voicemail.

YouMail: Another great tool, YouMail offers a number of voicemail solutions, including transcription, which converts voicemails into texts. This is useful when you are with a client and receive a phone call from another client. You want both clients to receive personalized service, so taking the phone call, or even checking your voicemail, might not be a good idea. With YouMail, you can read the content of the voicemail in a text.

Checkon.me: This App communicates automatically with a pre-designated contact if you don’t “check in” within a certain amount of time that you set. It is a great App to use while showing a home or conducting an open house. The App can also send the contact the location of your phone.

Social Media Apps That are Great for Real Estate:

LinkedIn: A free App, LinkedIn allows you access to your professional network from anywhere. You can follow real estate groups, post content and research your clients.

Flipboard: Agents can use this App to stay up to date on what’s going on in the industry. It is also a fun away to see your Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Zite: For agents who want to stay up to date and current on trends, technology, marketing and more, but don’t have the time to search the web to find valuable articles, Zite can curate the content you want, from real estate news, housing, home improvement, finance, social media and more. You can read the articles for your own knowledge; share them with clients and more.
