15 Best Real Estate iPhone Applications16
You don’t have to be a genius to figure out iPhone is more than just a smart-phone. In fact, it’s now more useful than any PDA I have ever used. While a lot of people use their iPhone to play games or do all kinds of fun things, you can use your phone to get some real business done. That applies to real estate professionals too. If you are a real estate agent who’s constantly on the move, you are going to need an app that helps you with the financial and technical side of things. It would also help if you could get your hands on an app that would give you the latest available homes in any area. Either way, there are lots of real estate apps available on iTunes that address every need you may have as an agent. Best of all, they don’t cost too much.
If you are a real estate agent interested in getting more out of your iPhone, here are 15 real estate iPhone applications you should try:

I think the app "Slider Calc – Mortgage Calculator" I developed would be a worthy #11 on this list (or replace one of the other mortgage calculators listed). It is designed with easy to grab sliders for experimenting with the numbers when you are considering loan payments, amount to borrow, interest rates, etc. Check it out if you like:http://www.mindshocker.com/?page_id=7
I have some promo codes, so if someone would like a freebie, email me at slidercalc -at- gmail -dot- com and I will set you up!
Have you seen The Sniffer app? <a href="http://www.thesnifferonline.com” target=”_blank”>www.thesnifferonline.com
It's a real estate evaluation tool that allows you to individually modify the variables in each deal and see how it effects your cash flow. Pretty sweet!
Check out Mokinetworks.com if you want all these apps in one!
iQualify Pro is a great calculator for real estate and mortgage professionals to pre-qualify their clients based on their income and other factors. Calculates borrower/buyer's max. qualified loan amount/purchase price. The app needs better UI though, but great app.
6 out of 15 of these are basically just mortgage calculators. You missed Real Estate Back of the Envelope, which goes way beyond figuring mortgage payments to make pretty sophisticated proforma acquisition, valuation and development scenarios on an iPhone (think it's available for Blackberry too). Might be TOO sophisticated for somebody just looking for a house, but for real estate professionals it's pretty useful. Here’s the link: http://www.realestateboe.com
Dave. Please do not inject HTML with your comments. It gets caught in our spam system automatically. 🙂 Thanks for the link.
Oops! Sorry, Cyrus…hope I didn't mess things up too much. Guess the link will work with copy and paste!
No that\’s Ok. Our spam system is annoying. We get thousands of comments here and if legitimate comments such as yours get filtered, it\’d be unfair. I\’ll see if there is anything we can do to allow links easier so people can actually click.
A friend and I are in the process of developing a real estate app for home buyers. It helps home buyers evaluate a house/property based upon their own unique needs. We are launching in May 2011 for the iPhone, but we have some screen shots up on our Facebook page. The filters don't allow links so you need to remove the spaces http : //facebook.com/Cre8tiveApps
that should be http: // http://www.facebook.com/Cre8tiveApps.
I would add Photo Measures to that list. It's not an app to find real estate, but you can take pictures and write measures and comments on the pics, so when you're comparing the places you've visited it's very practical. Also, you can email the pics to your loved one, client or architect from inside the app.

Another app you may be interested in is http://www.workingbusinesscard.com they provide a great app that you can customize and make your own personal app to hand out to potential clients.
Another useful App for real-estate is Skqueak. Skqueak is a free, easy to use, fun iOS App that adds audio, sketches, pan-zoom and text to your pictures, to create short animated clips. Real Estate buyers can use this app to take pictures of the property, zoom and sketch on it to point things to bring attention, and add voiceover. What better way to recall all aspects of a house?
