5 helpful apps to help you sell your home

You need all the help you can get these days when it comes to selling your home. With it taking on average 65 days to make a sale those home owners who have been desperately typing ‘sell house fast’ into Google will discover there are lots of apps out there to support your sale and help you remove that for sale sign quicker. Here are five of the best:

1. Periscope

Over in the US real estate agents have been trialing Periscope when it comes to showing potential buyers around homes, allowing those who can’t make an open day to see the property via their smartphone, tablet or computer. The app shares a live stream to those who log on to view it, and it might be worth considering when selling your home. Viewers can ask questions while the stream plays, which can be answered in real time as well as asking to see certain things again – much like when viewing a property in the flesh.

2. Snapchat

Much like Periscope, Snapchat and its story function could allow you to showcase your property with images and videos that viewers can see for 24 hours, making it exclusive and interesting to potential buyers.

The app is revolutionary, with its patented software technologies that consist of reality capture, sensor fusion and algorithms to piece together and map your inside spaces.

You just have to stand in the middle of the room, point at the corner and rotate along the length of wall. As you turn to each corner the app automatically maps the floor plan and then you can go from room to room, doing the same thing until you have a complete interlocking floor plan with no measuring or drawing required.
