There’s an app for that!

It’s no secret how much I love my iPhone (apologies to all my Microsoft clients and friends) and here’s another perfect example why. The other day a friend asked me to give her an idea how much she could sell her house for. Knowing the area, I had a relatively good idea but wanted to back up my answer so I did a search of some comparable homes in the area (both active listings and solds). I printed out a list of a few homes and brought them with me to her house. As I drove down her street I just about died when I noticed a for sale sign in her neighbor’s yard which unfortunately was nowhere on my handy-dandy clipboard full of research! (It turns out there was a very logical reason for this being that the square footage of her neighbor’s house was much larger therefore it did not show up in my search criteria). But regardless, its Real Estate 101 to include that in your comparable search!

Enter the iPhone. Luckily a few real estate companies have gotten savvy and come up with mobile apps for home searches. I quickly pulled up the app, entered the address and instantly had access to the listing including pictures, stats, days on market, and price. Crisis averted.  Thanks iPhone and technology.

On a much different note, it is the eve of June 28th and as I type I am wrapped up in my Snuggie. Snuggie in the summer? Well regardless, it really does keep you warm and give you the freedom to use your hands. Just in case you were wondering.
