Real Estate apps
For Renting and For Buying
Ever seen some of the homes for sale and just wonder? Wouldn't it be nice to even take a peek inside? You can scour through the home books or you can download a number of free apps. Search the app store for OBX and several pop up. (Search for Twiddy and you can grab yet another) The apps will ask to use your present location and if you allow it will zoom in and show you the houses for sale in your general area. You can zoom out farther to search other locations as well. Zooming in will give you an easier time clicking on a house and once you do you can even look at the listing photos, see what the price is and which office has the home for sale. Just a great set of all around apps. Whether you are curious or seriously looking, it will give you the information you are wanting.
Until next time...
Hope this hub gave you a little insight. I really have not found an OBX app yet that was not useful from the app store. The free ones are totally awesome and even the few paid ones are worth the buck or two.
Stay tuned in- I plan to let you know about the great products I found for keeping all those precious electronics save in the sand and surf.
Until we meet again
