Buying or selling your home? There’s an app for that…

Let's face it - good apps make our lives so much easier. We can use them for personal banking, shopping and all of our social networks. But did you know there are some brilliant FREE apps to help you buy or sell your home? We take a look at the best ones...

July 24, 2015

Best apps for buying or selling: 

 

1. Sold House Prices. This app from the Land Registry is handy if you want to check the last price that a property sold for, or the price that similar properties have achieved. The dataset is one of the most reliable sources of house price information.

2. Sun Surveyor Lite. To check when your new garden will get the sun, point this app at the sky to discover the direction of the sun’s rays at different times of the day.

3. AroundMe. Find out the nearest amenities to your property. The app lists the closest banks, restaurants, hospitals, petrol stations, chemists and other facilities and plots them on a map.

4. Flood Risk. Possibly a popular worry for new homeowners – this app analyses whether your chosen area is at risk of flooding. It also gives flood warnings and advice on what to do when faced with flooding.

5. Cell Phone Coverage Map. This app lets you know which mobile phone networks will have good reception in your new home.

6. London Air. If you’re buying in the capital, this app can let you know the air pollution levels in your chosen area.

8. FixMyStreet. This app allows you to view reports of fly-tipping, graffiti, broken paving slabs and other local problems.
