We’re beginning to wonder: What can’t your iPhone or iPad do these days?
With more and more productivity apps on the market, real estate agents are turning to their smartphones to conduct vital day-to-day business transactions.
If you’re a real estate agent, your device can be just as valuable as those precious leads. To get you started, we’ve compiled a list of five essential apps to simply your life while getting the most out of your business.
1. Keynote — Keynote from Apple allows users to quickly create beautiful and professional presentations straight from their devices. As a real estate agent, this app makes it easy to show off coveted listings with photos, videos, cinematic transitions and interactive charts. Your clients will be impressed before you even begin the show. Presentations can be stored via iCloud, so you can edit from any of your Apple devices.
2. DocuSign — Send, sign and manage your documents, including contracts, with this free app from DocuSign Productivity. Safe and legally binding, documents are digitally stored, automatically saved and always at your fingertips. More and more real estate agents are depending on DocuSign to save them time and money.
3. Cam Scanner — Never have to rush back to the office to scan documents when you can do on the go, right from your phone. Not only can you scan everything from receipts and notes to invoices and certificates, but Cam Scanner — a free app from IntSig Information Co. — is also designed to extract texts from scanned images so you can later search, edit and share.
4. Dropbox — One of the most recognized cloud service programs, Dropbox allows users to share, store and file documents, videos and photos. This free app makes it easy and safer to manage all your important documents.
5. Sitegeist — Know the ins-and-outs of your neighborhoods — and essentially, better serve your clients — with this free app from the Sunlight Foundation, a nonprofit and nonpartisan group that advocates for open government. Simply enter your location and it’ll provide you with easy-to-read data about your surrounding area, including average age of residents, political contributions, average temperature, commuting trends and popular nearby places.
