If you’re looking to buy or sell property, why not use technology to make your life a little easier? Bliss Conveyancing has compiled a list of handy mobile apps that allow you to search ‘for sale’ listings, assist you in decoding real estate terms and help you to find the best deal for your home finance.
CommBank Property Guide
This CommBank app compiles key features such as property listings, affordability calculators and market insights to give you a complete picture of your property search.
Sellers can use the app to compare listings in their suburb and surrounding areas and ensure that their price expectations are realistic.
Buyers can arm themselves with information about the estimated market value, suburb trends and deposit requirements, so that they can enter price negotiations confidently.
realestate.com.au & homely.com.au
Realestate.com.au’s app allows buyers to input your ideal property requirements (such as location, number of bedrooms, price) and return a list of properties currently on the market.
You have the ability to save your searches, as well as individual properties for future reference, and view a schedule of upcoming home opens.
To further help you organise your property search, you can turn on notifications to be alerted when a new property is listed or an inspection is scheduled.
Another similar app, Homely allows you to compile listed properties into ‘collections’ and share them with friends & family.
Stamp Duty AU
Stamp Duty AU is a calculator app that allows you to input the property’s purchase price and particulars, such as the property usage, whether you’re a first home owner and the type of property, to accurately calculate the Transfer Duty (previously known as Stamp Duty).
This app also calculates the government registration fees, payable to Land Register Office, to give buyers a complete picture of the regulatory costs associated with their property purchase.
Mortgage Choice Loan Helper
The Mortgage Choice Loan Helper app allows buyers to take control of their finances, and ensure that the property they purchase is within their means.
The app allows buyers to input their income & expenses, to then calculate their borrowing power.
Buyers can also input a loan amount to calculate their repayments and ensure that the proposed loan fits within their budget.
We know that looking to buy or sell your home can be stressful. But with these apps you can make the experience simpler and less hectic. And once you’ve found your perfect property, Bliss Conveyancing will take care of the legal side of things.
