Mobile property apps are becoming more and more popular as they are a convenient way to manage the sale or purchase of a property, as well as elements of moving, decorating, renovating… Everything you need for your perfect home is at your fingertips. Quite literally!


With so many property apps available on mobile and online, we wanted to share with you our top picks of best property apps we have found in 2021.


Best App For Buying and Selling Homes: Houso

Ok, we’re bias but we truly believe we are the best property app on the market. Not only does Houso empower users to sell their homes their way (work with an estate agent, or self-list) we don’t take a percentage of your sale, you can list your home for free, AND we give you free marketing across social media and our email marketing lists. You can list your property off market to gauge the interest in your home before you’re ready to move – we focussed on off market features because we know how frustrating a chain can be. If everyone listed off market and lined up their sale/purchase before they needed to move, the process would be much smoother. If you’re buying a house, you can search for properties and get in touch directly with the sellers, book your viewings, make offers, and negotiate directly through the app.

This is only scratching the surface – Houso has more to offer. You can download it for free on Android or Apple devices.


Best App For Moving Home: Moveable

Moveable is the perfect pocket partner for moving home. It’s free, easy to use, and makes the process of moving less stressful. Moveable features essential checklists and notifications, handy price-comparison guides, and time-saving efficiency tools all in one convenient package. Born of frustration from various unnecessary complications we ALL face when moving home, the team behind Moveable decided to improve the experience for everyone involved, from first-time buyers to seasoned property professionals.

Best App For Exploring The Area: AroundMe

We all know how exciting, or daunting, it can be to explore a new area. If you have just moved, or are thinking of moving to an area why not check out what’s nearby with AroundMe app? AroundMe searches for restaurants, banks, petrol stations, hotels, ATM machines, taxi ranks, and much more. Why not take a break from unpacking and have a wonder down to the local for lunch, or if you’re viewing in a new area you can check out what’s around to see if it’s the suitable town for you.

No more trying to explain your extra room decor to your partner – now you can simply show them!

Best App For Safety: Crime Map England & Wales

We don’t know about you, but one of our checks is the safety of the area we’re moving to. Crime Map shows real data from the Police forces in England and Wales so this is perfect to check out whenever you’re thinking of moving to a new area. Not only does it show where crimes and antisocial behaviour is active, or has occurred in the past, you can also zoom in on the map to see details of crimes that have occurred in that specific area.
