4 Awesome Real Estate Apps that Make Your Life Easier

Real estate apps help Realtors conduct business on the move. While agents have different niches, the ability to be more efficient is a common benefit between agents who sell raw land or specialize in REO.

Sounds great, but many agents are overwhelmed by the many choices and miss out on the best apps for their business. Thankfully, there is a select group of apps that improve the lives of nearly all Realtors.

Our top 4 choices for Free Real Estate Agent apps (in random order) are: Dot Loop, FoxIt Reader 7, Cam Scanner and Speaking Photo.

1. Dot Loop:

(Collaborate on Documents and get Signatures)

Missing signatures delay home closings and add stress to transactions. Contracts are increasingly complex and the sales cycle for homes requires signoffs at many stages.

You create ‘loops’ that feature real-time updates to close transactions more efficiently. Agents can also tailor their loops for each transaction. As an example, lenders or title agencies may be in different loops for separate documents. Agents are able to quickly add documents to different loops from wherever they may be.

2. FoxIt Reader 7:

(Create and Convert PDF documents)
