Best Tablet Apps for Real Estate Agents

While we all love our smartphones, tablets are increasingly prevalent in the marketplace today. In many cases, especially for real estate agents, they’re easier and more convenient to use.

    I love using Evernote with buyers. I hand them my tablet during a showing and have them jot down their impressions of the property. I also encourage them to take pictures in Evernote. I follow-up with them by sending them their notes with pictures. They love this. It helps them remember what they liked or didn’t like about the properties they viewed. When buyers look at a lot of properties, they tend to blur together in their minds. This helps them with their selection process. Plus, they tend to refer me because I’ve been so helpful!

    Hands down, the best app by far for any Realtor is Notability! For iOS only…
    I have been using this app for over a year and I literally use it multiple times a day. I purchased it before it became popular for only 0.99$ but knowing what it does and how crucial it is for my business, I would easily pay $9.99 for it any day!
    This is more valuable & useful than Apple’s Pages & they charge $9.99 for it.

    You can modify any PDF file. This means, I do ALL my contracts on this app. I have Promise to Purchase forms, Brokerage Contracts, Amendment forms, Counter Offers, etc… You can also work offline, fill in what you need to then have everyone sign it right there. Then either connect to wifi or tether off your phone and email digital copies to all parties involved.
    You can also open the PDF document in any app or send to Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, print, email, Twitter and so much more. You can add images too…I like putting my logo on my forms and/or create some other useful worksheets like Facsimile’s, notary checklists, etc…

    I even purchase this app and send it as a gift to my clients I’m working with that have an ipad or iPhone so that they can sign all the documents that I email them, with more ease! Makes my life less complicated so I don’t have to drive all across town for a signature.

    Get it and you’ll be kicking yourself for not finding it sooner!
