Third Generation iPad into your real estate business


The new iPad 3rd Generation is finally ready for the average REALTOR to use in their Real Estate Business. Here is a quick list of why they are now a tool that we can't live without. 

  •  iPads are great for Listing Presentations.
  •  I use Smartpad Pro to map and pin properties, markup maps show where schools are in relation to subject properties, map driving routes and estimate distances.
  •  Speak text selection function - under Accessibility, you can ask your ipad and iphone to speak a selection of text for you. This works great while driving or working out.
  • New 5mp Camera - you can use scanner pro to scan and send waivers, addendums, extensions, etc.
  • Document manager - I use my ipad to hold my entire filing cabinet worth of paper.
  • There are 6 people in our company admin team and we all use one Dropbox account to have all of our company data centralized into one area.  We Organize, Review, and amend contracts on our ipads using a couple of new apps. Email bob@telus.net for a list of the current document management apps we use.
  • Browse at amazing speeds with the 4G LTE network, but even with the 3G HSPA, data is still really fast.
  • We lend our iPads to our Client during showings or to their kids while we are sitting down negotiating a contract. iPads can download many free popular games for the kids to play while waiting.
  • Great battery life - most laptops last 5 hours. The ipad lasts at least 10.
  • Ability to Broadcast a wifi hotspot. This feature comes in handy all week long as I travel from meeting to meeting. Now I'm able to use my iPad to broadcast an internet signal.
  • Compatibility - It is rare that a device is able to change the world, but the ipad did. 
  • Logmein allows me to remotely access a desktop. We use this in our company to login to a PC for the odd website that needs windows to open their programs.
  • Flashlight -  for in the middle of the showing when you are trying to find the light switch in the basement.
  • Atomic Web App - To pull titles and access websites that you can't access from an ipad browser.
  • eKey - Our Supra ekeys allow us to access lockboxes from an ipad
  • Photon - This web browser allows you to access those pesky flash websites right on your ipad.
  • Logmein allows me to remotely access a desktop. We use this in our company to login to a PC for the odd website that needs windows to open their programs.
  • Starbucks App - When you leave the office without your wallet, you can seamlessly pay for food and drinks at Starbucks with your starbucks app.
  • PDF Expert - amend and annotate PDF documents on your ipad.
