Home Hunting Apps

Home hunting can be exciting but it can also be a lot of work. But now help can be a tap away. Craig Stevens is here now with today’s Appsolute Must-have downloads.

WSVN — You passed by a house you like but don’t know anything about it, “Homesnap” allows you to snap a photo of any house you like and it will tell you the home value, last sold price, how many bedrooms and bathrooms it has and local district facts.

You can favorite, comment or recommend a property to a family member or friend, and if the house is up for sale you can get the listing information.

For those wanting to rent not buy, “Apartment list” is the ultimate app to search for what you need. Enter location, set price and what you are looking for and with the information entered the app will generate a list of available rentals around your area.

You can search apartments by map view or list. The listings have email and call button on the side for easy access.

If you plan on buying a property in the future start with “Bankrate Mortgage.” An app that figures out the financial part of buying a property. With a mortgage calculator that is easy to use. With several rates from banks that can be sorted by payment amount, lender and interest rates. There’s a link on the side so you can apply and get approved.

All of today’s apps are free to download.
