What’s more, they are UK-based apps, which I have to say makes a great change.
For instance, Zoopla allows you to search not only for properties to buy but search the company’s database for properties to let. With renting becoming increasingly popular or a more affordable option, in Britain, this is good news.
Zoopla also provides other useful information about what a property is worth. It even gives details of average house prices in the local area.
This last point when combined with Karl’s Mortgage Calculator can give you an all round search facility without having to leave your house.
As the name implies, Karl’s Mortgage Calculator enables you to work out how much you can afford to borrow and what the repayments will be based on current interests rates.
Once you have worked all this out, you might want to do another calculation on the house of your dreams. With CTax Easy Calculator you can work out how much the Council Tax is for the property you are interested in.
If you are still looking for a property, but have not found anything on Zoopla, you might want to try Findaproperty.com’s mobile app. This particular application allows you to use your handset’s GPS facility. As such you can review houses for sale or rent in real time. Beats pounding the streets.
Finally, once you have found your home, try out Make Your Home for tips on decorating.
