In real estate, location is key. Lifestyle is hinged upon the locality. Accessibility is also primary. Convenience is always a must. Use the following apps to check what the neighborhood has in store for your property.
Google Maps (Android, iOS, desktop, Web)
By far the most popular digital map, Google Maps is the go-to for directions, lay of land, and navigational needs. It has useful functions like the route planner, which maps out a route by foot, car, or bus from one specified direction to the other. It comes with satellite imagery, street map, and Street View perspectives for certain locations. Users can also input map entries, pictures, and ratings or reviews, and they can leave notes on various points on the map.
Sitegeist (Android and iOS)
With a clean, simple, user-friendly interface, Sitegeist presents information about the neighborhood, including recommended restaurants, public transportation, popular local spots, average rent, housing units over time, age distribution, political contributions, and record temperatures, all of which are mined from crowdsourced information.
AroundMe (Android, iOS, Windows)
AroundMe pinpoints your location and provides you with the nearest establishments, among them banks, bars, gas stations, hospitals, hotels, malls, restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, and more. It's a fantastic tool for house-hunting, enabling the user to survey the area for its host of amenities and lifestyle essentials.
Foursquare (Android, iOS, Web)
A lifestyle app that leads its user to recommended establishments, among them restaurants, nightlife hotspots, shopping zones, sights and attractions, and other places of interest tailored to one's taste. A handy tool for homebuyers, investors, or realtors looking for the local color in a certain neighborhood.
