iPhone Apps for property people

I was asked today by a friend who’s just got their first iPhone, which property related apps I have/recommend. So I figured rather than just send him a list I would list them here and send him a link

So here they are:-

The first two, I use to keep up with all my property news and to be in touch with fellow professionals:


WordPress- to enable me to keep on top of my blog whilst on the move

Then there are the main portal apps:-

(soon to add another here…)

iProperty UK – a tidy little property search app using the Nestoria search engine. Has a few nice features but is not the best aesthetically.

Mouseprice – what you’d expect from mouseprice. Its a good app and I’m pretty sure I’d find it really useful if I was an agent on the move.

Layar – layer is an augmented reality app that almost act as a host application for other applications to operate. These apps are referred to as layers and there are a few layers that I have (more info on augmented reality apps here)

House detective
Free average price data 2010
Find a property (not to be confused with TDPG)
UK house hunter

Home 3D – this app allows you to create foot plans that can then be converted for use elsewhere. Not sure I’d use it as an agent but I downloaded it to try it out.

There are also a few individual agent apps that I have downloaded to see what quality of apps are out there being marketed directly by agents (Hamptons, WA Ellis, Knight Frank).

I have a couple of American agent apps, mainly because they are  normally ahead of the UK when it comes to technology and so I can see what new ideas they are introducing for their apps.

Finally I have a really cool golf game, obviously because all property people need a round of golf every now and again.

Please share below any others that you recommend we should add to the list.

  2. Hi Ben,

    Ed from Nestoria here. Nice list. One thing – there are several apps that use our data.

    We recommend Sten Hiedel’s excellent UK Property app.

    On a related note we have quite a few other tools that might be interesting for either property searchers or webmasters.

    Enjoy. All feedback welcome.

  3. Hi Ed,

    Thanks for the post and sharing the Stan Heidel app which I have now added to my property folder.

    Had a look at your tools too and almost find it difficult to know where to start! nice work
