Property Apps.... All you need to know when moving home!

“There’s an app for that”, the typical response for most things nowadays. Digital tools are reshaping many industries, providing consumers with a wealth of information at their fingertips. The property industry has embraced the digital environment and it has certainly effected everyone- from homebuyers and sellers to agents, landlords and even renters looking for a new housemate. Nowadays there are estate agents who operate purely online or ones like us who do both online and instore. Having formed relationships with property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla, you can view many of our properties via this platform.

With the majority of people now accessing the internet via their mobile device rather than a desktop, property-related apps are starting to come to the foreground. It can be a little confusing knowing what’s what, so here is our guide to some of the best- from property searching, location awareness and home inspiration.
