Just about everyone has a smartphone these days, making our online experience faster and so much more convenient.


Apps have completely changed the way we use smartphones but with nearly 3 million apps to choose from, there’s no doubt finding what you need can be overwhelming.


When you’re looking to buy, update or sell a property, there are thousands of apps to choose from so we thought we’d share our top 5 picks to make it easier for you. Check these out:


Pick #1  Real Estate Australia 

Considered to be Australia’s #1 property site and operated by the Real Estate of Australia, this app has a rating of 4.7. It is known to be reliable and provide up-to-the minute information on properties for sale and rental availability. If you’re looking to buy, sell or rent, this is the app you need to download.


Pick #2   Domain

The Domain app is similar to the RealEstate app so it really comes down to personal preference. Real estate agents will tend to use both apps as they both allow the user to search for a variety of Australian properties to buy or rent, look up sale prices, check price estimates, customise your search, create your own collection and inspection list, and set up alerts for new listings.

Other good property buy/sell apps include Homely and realestateview.


Pick #3   Property Calculator Australia

Whether it’s your home or investment property, with this app you can instantly see your stamp duty, loan balance, deposit required, weekly, fortnightly or monthly loan repayments, and more. When checking your loan balance, the Property Calculator app will even take into consideration your Lenders Mortgage Insurance, if you wish. Over 60,000 users trust this app, and it’s recommended by Money and Canstar, so we figure it’s a good pick for you too.


Pick #4   On The House Property Values

This clever app by RP Data Ltd provides a wealth of property information that you will find invaluable, including FREE property data on every property in Australia (over 12.5 million), not just the properties for sale. With calculated estimates, property profile reports, sale history, and comparative reports, you will be an expert in everything to do with real estate.


Pick #5    Houzz

If you’re looking to re-design, decorate or update your home, explore the Houzz app. You can browse millions of home decor photos sorted by style, location or room. You can find architects, interior decorators and other tradespeople through the app. Houzz also has an exciting 3D function whereby you can try ‘virtual’ products in your home. With a popularity rating of 4.8, this app is a must if you’re looking at improving your home or investment property.


All these apps, and more, are available for download on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.


We hope these top 5 App picks will create some ease to all your buying, upgrading or selling needs.
