We’re starting this blog post off with a quick fact, in 2019 there were 80.97 million mobile phone subscriptions in the UK. What’s this got to do with moving home? Well, smartphones have taken over our lives with an app available to assist you with everything from booking holidays to business meetings to banking and moving home is no different. You can download apps to help you with every aspect of your house move; we have chosen our top six apps to download today.

Rightmove

Of course, this had to be top of our list. The UK’s number 1 property app allows you to view properties to rent or buy with search options to help you with your search. All of our properties are marketed on Rightmove showing pictures, videos, floorplans, maps and full descriptions.

TomTom Routes

So you’ve found a house but do you know how long it will take you to get to work or do the school run? This web-based route planner uses the same reliable maps and traffic information that TomTom uses in its popular sat-navs. No one likes to be stuck in traffic so test your routes from every potential property.

Moving Checklist Pro

This app may have been designed in America but you can still customise it for your move here in the UK. We love a checklist and this app covers everything from removal firms, utility providers to even where you can buy packing materials!

eBay

Ok, so you might already have this app but are you using it properly? As you pack for your new home it’s a great time to declutter which is where eBay comes in. Sell unused or unwanted items or clothing to earn some extra cash and declutter your home in the process.

Around Me

Get to know your neighbourhood with this helpful app that allows you to search for shops, businesses, petrol stations, parks and other locations in your area. You may think you already know the area where you live until you’re trying to find a dog groomer or nearest ATM.

Dulux Visualiser

We told you that there is an app for everything and this just proves it! You can download an app to help you pick which colours to use on the walls in your new home. Using your smartphone’s camera you can see the colours live in your living space, pretty cool right?

Before you start your search for a new home you need to find out how much your home is worth. Call our sales team on 01633 870777 to book a free market-led valuation or if you’re a first-time buyer you can book an appointment with our in house Mortgage Advisor to find out how much you can afford to borrow.
