Apple has been a very influential company during recent years. It seems every day the legacy of Steve Jobs makes new products to streamline everyday life, and homeowners definitely benefit.
Recently, Apple announced its new Macbook updates, as well as changes to iPhone software. This software will now be able to support more than 200 additional features. These changes could continue to help homeowners in a number of ways. They may make it easier to manage improvements to their houses, buy and sell homes with the help of FHA or VA loans or find cheap ways to make repairs.
The free Zillow app could be very useful to both current owners and first-time homebuyers. This app allows users to view property values in markets across the country. In addition, data on sales and tax histories of homes is also available. While this is a useful tool for buyers, owners can utilize it to price their own home properly if they want to sell.
This app is also free and gives users unique home design ideas. Houzz provides clear images of room designs from a number of top-designers. However, this app takes it a step further by allowing you to highlight specific products and features in an image. Users can then get information on where to purchase these items as well as cost information and details.
Want to complete a construction project? Using the ServiceMagic Mobile app can make the process easier. With this app, users can pre-screen construction contractors as well as compare and contrast quotes for a project. In addition, contact information is on one easy-to-read pace, so getting in touch with a contractor is simple.
HomeSmarts gives you advice on home maintenance and repairs. Not only does it provide a number of tips for do-it-yourself projects, you can set up a home maintenance schedule. This will help you remember when certain things need attention. However, if you forget to check this schedule, don’t worry, the app will send you a notification.
Meanwhile, if you need to complete a repair that is out of your skill level or comfort zone, HomeSmarts can tell you who to call. Not only will it give you a list of professionals in your area, such as electricians and plumbers, it provides contact information and estimated quotes as well.
