From finding your home to packing to getting settled in the new neighborhood, there’s an app to help with it all. These seven apps are the best out there to get you moving.
The first step before you can move is finding the perfect home. Zillow is the top real estate app that lets you browse through thousands of listings and rental properties to find the ideal place for you. Zillow also offers “zestimates” which estimate the actual property value so you can be sure you get a good deal.
Trulia is another excellent app to help you find your next home purchase or rental. The main feature that sets Trulia apart is that Trulia provides a monthly breakdown of the potential costs involved with each property you look at, including taxes, insurance, association fees, etc. Use Trulia to ensure you move to a property you can afford.
Now that you’ve found your beautiful new home, it’s time to start packing. Sortly is the must-have, free app to keep an inventory of all your belongings and where you packed them. Unpacking will be a breeze knowing where you can locate every item. Purchase the premium subscription to print QR labels to place on each box that will reveal what is inside when scanned.
Need holes filled or the carpet cleaned before you move out? Need walls professionally painted at the new place before you move in?
