What is Technology in 2014?
Technology in 2014 means Internet searches, blogs, apps,
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media outlets. With a smartphone you have access to millions of applications which can be used to help you
prepare to buy your dream home today. You can apps available from Trulia,
Zillow, Redfin, MyNewPlace, and Realtor.com to immediately alert you the second
a home with your given criteria goes in the market or if a price change has
occurred on a home you have added to your favorites.
Useful Smartphone Applications
applications like iPhone’s “Around Me”
you can do so much more than the learning the price of a home. The app easily
allows you to view local amenities such as restaurants, banks, gas stations,
and more. (Boero, 2014). With any “Navigation” application you can quickly
determine if the listing you are going to see is next to a busy highway or a
jail or look around the neighborhood by using the street view mode.
you want to find houses that are for-sale-by-owner (FSBO), which means they are
listed by a realtor, while on the go you can use “Classifieds2go” to help you find these FSBO sales.
“HomeBuyingPower” you can input
variables like: payment amount you are willing to pay, any down payment, loan
term and interest rate in order to determine how much home you can afford. It
can go as far as helping you estimate closing costs.
you go to a closing you can have the application like “Dictionary of Real Estate terms” handy to define over 3,000 real
estate terms showing you know what you are talking about by asking educated
application like “CreditKarma” can
help you improve your credit score or monitor who has accessed your credit
score and why. With CreditKarma you use the Credit Score Simulator to show you
how certain financial actions might affect your credit score over time. You can
see how a bankruptcy, late payment, tax lien, and more could affect your credit
score. This can come in real handy whenever you are in the market for a new
a “BankRate” application you can
view interest rates for several mortgage companies, great articles about saving
money as well several calculators at your disposal, like:
