Home sales apps rising in popularity

U.S. & World

(NBC) — Late spring and early summer is one of the busiest times of the year for selling homes. That means plenty of competition for sellers.

There are some apps sellers can use to get an advantage in the market.

Homesnap is for both buyers and sellers.

People can see home value estimates, taxes, property boundaries, learn about school zones, view interior photos and more, just by taking a picture.

Sellers, in particular, can scope out the competition and adjust selling price, increase promotion efforts, and more. The app is free for IOS and Android.
