A big part of being in property management is knowing the properties in your area as well as areas that surround you. Since you don’t require any prior experience or education in order to get into property management, absolutely anyone can do it. It’s a great big world out there, but there really are only so many buildings to go around. For this reason, it’s important to give yourself an edge among the competition by staying on top of things.

How can you do that? The answer is simple. All you need is to download a couple of different real estate apps onto your phone and/or computer and you’re good to go!

What Are Real Estate Apps?


Remember back when you had to wait for the paper to come out so that you could see which properties were up for sale and which ones had sold? Those days are a thing of the past, my friend. Sure, you could visit various websites over the course of any given day, but that can be time consuming and somewhat stressful if you’re not the most technologically inclined person.

Real estate apps not only give you immediate access to the market in your area, they also provide you with a way to take that information with you wherever you go. Regardless of whether you’re sitting at home in your sweatpants or you’re at a family reunion on the other side of the country, you can check in and potentially expand your business at any time of day.

Let’s say that you’ve been thinking about expanding your business, but there aren’t any listings in your immediate area that appeal to you. With just a couple of clicks of your mouse (or swipes of your finger if you’re using a smartphone or tablet), you can check out your surrounding areas for something a little more up your alley.

If you’re feeling especially ambitious, you could even pick up a couple of properties in another state! Since there are so many different software programs available that allow you to take your business anywhere in the world, you’re no longer confined to working locally.

The process is simple: Download a real estate app or two, swipe, find, acquire, and start watching the money roll in. Who knows? You might find your biggest client yet!
