We picked out 5 apps that will make it easy for you to maintain lists of available flats, share them with your potential clients, manage your income and expenses, etc.
Let’s jump straight to it.
Apps Real Estate Agents Will Benefit From In 2021
#1: Google Maps
If you don’t already use Google Maps, it is time you did. Not only will it ensure you reach the right location for a meeting or to show the site but your clients will as well. It is one of the most indispensable tools for a real estate agent.
You want the clients to see the right house, have the right address, and with maps, you can share the exact location in a jiffy.
The only drawback with maps is that its use is limited to just that but works perfectly in tandem with other apps like the one below.
If you are looking for data management apps that help you track your expenses, income, list of properties that are available, customer details, etc. then Lio is the app for you and it has 5M+ downloads on Google Play Store is proof people love it.
Lio App comes with pre-built registers and you can get started with it in about 15 seconds. Not just that, it makes sharing the list of flats, etc. with your customers super easy. You can either share the sheet over WhatsApp as an excel file or PDF or simply add them to the sheet using their email or phone number.
You no longer have to drown your business with docs and sheets, Lio gives you a centralized space to store all the info that makes your business tick. Most registers have automatically done the calculations, further saving you time. And to top it all, it is free.
If the pandemic taught us anything it is that online is the future. The last thing you want is to ask a client to come and sign documents, especially in times like this. As for other times, I could be busy, on vacation, etc.
And if the deal isn’t closed asap, that’s not good news for business. The more time you give them to think, the likelier they are to change their mind. The solution? Make it easy for them to sign deals quickly by making the agreements online.
And PDFEscape is just the tools for it. All parties can easily add signatures and wrap up the deal within minutes even if they are on different continents.
A good alternative to this is DocuSign and it is free to use.
Whether you are looking for houses or want to sell a few, housing.com is an obvious go-to place for Indians. It has millions of people viewing properties every day and listing the available flats there puts them in focus.
Just make sure you add real images and photos of the house and describe amenities, expenses, etc. in detail.
Having lived on rent for most of my life, I can tell you, bad photos and no details are a red flag. So take the time out and make those listings worth the time of your potential clients.
#5: Cam Scanner
I am sure your office has a scanner and that you scan and send or store hundreds of documents every day. But what if you aren’t in your office and you need to scan an important document?
Oh, and there isn’t any scanning shop nearby. Well, that’s where apps like Cam Scanner can come to your rescue. It makes the scans look exactly how they would come out from a traditional scanner, in turn, saving you the time, effort, and money that would be needed to run back to the office.
It is available on both Android and iOS and is free.
There’s a list of apps that can help real estate agents in India to not only grow their business but also improve their relationship with clients by making their life easier.
You don’t just have to rely on one app. Using apps in combination like Maps and Lio will ease various aspects of your business. Try them out and stick to the ones that best fit your needs and budget.
