Best Realtor & Real Estate Apps for Apple iPhone & iPad on iOS
Since switching back from my Samsung Note 3 to an Apple iPhone 6, I thought I would compile a list of the apps that I use most for my Real Estate Business. Check them out, and they might help you be more efficient with your business. Feel free to comment below and let me know if you agree.
DocuSign for REALTORS
DocuSign is the best App for Real Estate and Realtors. It allows you to have your clients sign documents on their phone, tablet or even their desktop computer.
Using the DocuSign iOS app, you can send documents to your clients to sign, these documents can come from your phone, DropBox, Google Drive… The list goes on.
If you haven’t tried DocuSign, click the link below to get 30 days free then 10% off your yearly price. You’ll be glad you did.
DropBox for Realtors
If you aren’t using a cloud-based storage system for your files, DropBox would be a great place to start.
Allowing you to host all your documents in one secure place, you don’t have to worry if you lose or break your phone. You can also collaborate on folders with your assistants or clients, allowing them to add or edit documents.
If you sign up using the link below, you’ll get 500MB of extra space for FREE!
We’re all on the road so much, sometimes we don’t have time to drive back to the office to get that contract scanned, and why should we! Use Genius Scan for iOS to generate a PDF of any document. Once done, you can email, upload to DropBox or DocuSign. Save the time and gas!
Quickbooks Online for iOS
This is a new app I’ve started using this year, and it ties in with QuickBooks Online.
As Realtor’s, let’s face it, we’re usually scrambling around at tax time trying to get all our books in order. It’s much easier if you do it as you go along, and much MUCH easier if you use QuickBooks Online (QBO).
QBO links up with your banking institution and credit card providers to sync your transactions. You can then add notes, and categorize expenses as appropriate. You can even invite your accountant to collaborate and see your information.
Try it. It will change your life.
Feedly is a great RSS feed aggregator. You can sign up on your desktop at feedly.com and input your favourite news feeds. Once on your device, news is updated in the categories you specify.
They will soon be adding offline support so you can read your news and articles once you’re outside coverage areas, or on a plane.
Pay by Phone
Pay by phone allows you to park at metered parking and lots in Vancouver (and other cities) and pay for the parking using your credit card.
This is amazing for a few reasons;
1. You don’t need to carry change around with you all the time, and;
2. At the end of the year, you can log into your account a print a report of all the parking charges you incurred.
Who doesn’t need an extra deduction at tax time!
