As mobile technology and iPads become more prevalent, it can be hard to navigate the extensive amount of apps that are available. We’ve put together a list of the top 10 iPad apps for real estate professionals designed for on-the-go efficiency.

  1. Zillow (Free)
    In addition to high-resolution photo galleries and side-by-side comparisons, Zillow gives users access to real estate data and info for all U.S. Homes. Zestimates on home values, homes for sale, and more can easily be accessed (and saved for later) with a few drags and taps.
  2. REALTOR.com® (Free)
    REALTOR.com® has the most extensive and frequently updated listings on the web. With this app you can view listings, save listing and map searches, and add private ratings and notes. With website synchronization, you can take your home searches with you and share them with your friends, agents, and social networks.
  3. Trulia (Free)
    Trulia HD was designed specifically for the iPad. With full-screen interactive maps, neighborhood-specific details, high-resolution photos, and more – Trulia makes searching for homes for sale easy and fun.
  4. Keynote ($9.99)
    Easier and more intuitive than PowerPoint, Keynote is a great tool for creating simple and stylish listing presentations.
  5. Documents To Go ($9.99)
    If you’re attached to PowerPoint, Documents To Go is for you. This is a one-stop application with support for Microsoft® Word, Excel & PowerPoint, PDF, Apple iWork and other files and attachments.

  8. DocuSign (Free app; subscription required)
    This is a top electronic signature service for all your business document needs. Create, tag and modify documents for e-signature. Then you can send, track, sign, and manage them with real-time status, so you know what is complete and what still needs attention.
  9. Layar (Free)
    An Augumented Reality (AR) technology app that displays digital information called “layers” into your field of vision. Use it to discover additional information about the world around you. Connect and share your layers, spots, and screenshots with your social networks.
  10. Bump (Free)
    Any file you want to share can easily be transferred with Bump™. Just select what you want to share and gently bump together two devices to transfer data between users. Adding friends inside of Bump also allows you to share files even when they aren’t near.

    This was great news to be able to have you guys do the leg work for me. I love this kind of stuff. It would be great if you could create a group of us that use iPad’s for the purpose of letting us know when you have information for us.
    I for one really appreciate this kind of stuff. I haven’t the time nor the inclination to look up all the Apps that are available. This is perfect!
    Thanks,
    Dan
