What 2 or 3 mobile apps would you recommend for home buyers or house hunters, and why? What Smart Apps do you recommend your customers use for the house hunting process?
2 or 3 apps that I would recommend are of course My GR app, allows you to run scenarios to see what your payment would be, and allows you to apply directly to me from your phone, and your realtor specific application, because if you are working with a realtor and looking at homes on their app, you can just click the home and ask them a question about it directly to them!
