How do you gain a competitive edge in the real estate market? At NWALook, we understand that the answer to this question is multifaceted. Smart technology plays a crucial role and gives you a competitive advantage. We have identified a few key resources to help you maintain your competitive edge going forward. Let’s take a look.

Buying and selling properties has become increasingly complex in recent years, with several apps and websites available to aid consumers in the process. Let’s examine the top websites and apps we find most useful at NWALook, to be used in Real Estate.

Landglide

Landglide is another app that provides users with geographic information. It allows users to see the owner’s information, property lines, as well as property tax information, and county-assessed value.

Nerdwallet

Nerd Wallet allows you to compare different mortgage rates across the country while providing advice on budgeting and saving for a down payment. This resource was selected based on the recent fluctuation we have seen in interest rates. Identifying the lowest mortgage rate could be the determining factor in whether someone can purchase a particular home even with small margins.

Deal Check

Deal Check is an app that allows novice-expert real estate investors to analyze investments quickly. This app enables basic calculations for cash flow, return on investment (ROI), and cap rates. Another cool feature of Deal Check is that it allows you to compare multiple properties side by side to determine the best potential property for profit.

ChatGpt

Many of you have heard about ChatGpt by now. ChatGpt has implications for several businesses including real estate. A few common ways to leverage ChatGpt for real estate include detailed listing descriptions and researching local areas including amenities and regulations. Although it doesn’t have the capability of real-time questions, like the value of a home we at NWALook, expect to see it in the future.
