The 2018 Best Mobile Apps for Homebuyers Report
A comprehensive guide for mortgage and real estate professionals (and a resource for their customers!)
Mobile devices are forever changing the way that Americans buy homes. According to a survey performed by the National Association of Realtors, 89% of new home shoppers use a mobile search engine at the onset and throughout their research. And one in four real estate website visitors access the site from a mobile phone. Home buying has gone completely mobile, and for good reason: mobile applications enable homebuyers to search for homes using a specific set of criteria that fit exact needs and wants as a homebuyer. Moreover, mobile apps enable homebuyers to save time, money, and stay organized throughout the complicated and often stressful process of buying a home.
Realtors and lenders can gain a competitive edge as a guide and resource in the process by providing homebuyers, especially Millennials, with recommendations for mobile apps that will improve their home buying experience. But there are a ton of apps on the market and sifting through the sea of options can be overwhelming. My team and I have researched and tested many homebuyer apps and have come up with a list of the best ones and at which stage of the homebuying process to use them.
Here are our top rated mobile apps for the modern homebuyer. Use this as a resource and reference for your clients!
