The Best iPhone App for Real Estate Investors: HomeSnap
« on: August 17, 2012, 11:46:52 am »
I found about a new iPhone app that some of my real estate investor clients are using. It’s called HomeSnap. This app allows you to take a “snap” or a photo of a home with your iPhone and then spits out all kinds of information about the property including: number of bedrooms, bathrooms, the square footage, when did it last sell, what is it worth, etc. The house doesn’t even need to be listed on the MLS for you to obtain this data.

This is a great app for real estate investors that drive around seeking out properties that are not on the MLS. There are currently 90 million homes in the company’s database and they are aggressively adding new Cities across the U.S. Follow this link to see a video of how this app works, very cool: http://www.sawbuck.com/homesnap

Sounds interesting. I will take a look.

I believe there are about 100 million homes in the USA. They must be close to having all of them if they have 90 million.

I heard about it on NPR.  It is really neat.  The reason 90 million of the 100 million houses are on it is because it uses GPS technology to know where you are and then just like Shazam can tell you the name of the song you are listening to is, it tells you what house you just took a picture of (the yellow one on the north east corner, etc).  The values come from either MLS data if the house is for sale or tax data if it is not.  The problems tend to come from situations where all the houses in a neighborhood look just alike or the houses are too new for the values to hit any databases that it has access to.  I think it is a good tool for grins and kicks (take a picture of your bosses house to know if he is a real baller or not).  I would treat it like Truila or Zillow, I would not build a business model from it.

Thanks for the further detail. Interesting that it is more or less doing a real time match (image to MLS or tax data).
