AUSTIN, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – There are a number of new applications available for mobile phones that have to do with the real estate industry. JB Goodwin Real Estate Agent Rocky Breon says, along with a professional realtor, these apps can aid in the home buying process.
The iPhone and other mobile devices are changing the landscape of real estate. JB Goodwin Realtor Rocky Breon says some applications for the phones are helpful, but will not replace a real live estate agent.
“The rollout of new iPhone mobile apps out on the market can really empower and add to a homebuyer’s experience,” says Breon. “They can complement the process when a person also uses a qualified real estate agent.”
A number of the applications are free, such as Zillow Real Estate Search. With this app, a potential homebuyer can find homes for sale or rent as they walk or drive through a particular neighborhood. The application lets an individual filter search results by price, number of bedrooms, and more, and people can also save their searches and email or share homes on Facebook and Twitter.
“This can be a helpful tool for people curious about what is available in a certain area,” Breon said.
Other iPhone real estate applications that aid in a home search are those that calculate the financial end of home buying or renting. While it costs a couple of bucks, Home Buying Power lets the consumer find out what they can afford to buy and how much their mortgage will be.
For those individuals unfamiliar with the real estate world, the app Dictionary of Real Estate Terms by Intersog can help explain the industry jargon. The user can browse terms such as absentee owner to mortgage rate to gain a better understanding of the lingo.
“For someone who’s buying their first home and wants to be more informed, an application that defines some of the terms can be invaluable,” Breon add. “After all, buying a house is one of life’s most important decisions so it’s vital that a someone goes into it with knowledge of the basic vocabulary.”
Even with all the best technology, Breon says, “no application for a phone can ever take the place of an experienced real estate agent.”
“These applications for our mobile devices are meant to enhance a homebuyer’s experience, but people still need a competent real estate agent to represent their interests and negotiate on behalf,” Breon concludes.
