Fresh from the Xplode Conference - one of the best conferences for real estate technology - we have a handful of new real estate apps we're really excited about!
Evernote is like Pinterest meets personal organizer. Save all of your notes, interesting articles, photos of things you want to remember, all in one place. While not created specifically for real estate, there are plenty of ways it can be a useful tool for busy real estate professionals. Agents can snap a photo of business cards and receipts to make some quick notes about a business lunch.
NextDoor is a private social network for neighborhoods. It acts in a similar way as Facebook but only includes verified residents in a specific neighborhood, creating a secure, private network for you and your neighbors. Their philosophy is to build a stronger sense of community through the power of technology. This could be helpful for agents looking for new ways to connect with their own communities. NextDoor is available in many areas but might not have been started yet. Start one in your neighborhood or better yet - find out if one has started in the neighborhoods of your listings and add it as a selling point.
Losing a key to a property could be detrimental and costly - until now! Keyme is an app that creates digital copies of your keys and allows you to get copies made through several options - on-site delivery, locksmith, mail-order, or a local self-service key cutting station. Users can even share keys with friends, family or clients. Everyone here at Real Estate Ally already has all their keys backed up on their digital keychains!
In their own words "We strive to combine the simplicity, convenience, and collaborative spirit of a handshake with the protection of a legal agreement." Amen. Shake enables the creation and signature of legal documents all from your smartphone. Including but not limited to: freelance, buy/sell, rent/lend, loan and confidentiality agreements. This can be a useful app for agents or brokers that need to create custom documents fast from the field.
