Making Your Home Buying Process Easier And More Fun

The smartphone has become one of the most important tools in our everyday lives. When you need directions to a restaurant, need to kill time waiting in line or need something to keep the kids occupied, your phone is there for you. Did you also know that your phone could help you in your search for a new home? Let’s take a look at some of the best home buying apps that can make it easier to find a home, schedule a showing or even make an offer.

1Karl’s Mortgage Calculator

If you are trying to figure out how much you can afford to spend on your next house, this calculator will tell you everything that you need to know. You can see how much you would spend over the life of a loan if you made biweekly payments as opposed to monthly payments or how much your monthly payment would be if you put 5 percent down as opposed to 20. It is perfect for those who like detailed information before making a purchasing decision.

2The Canadian Mortgage App

The Canadian Mortgage App is another one of the top home buying apps that provides you with one of the most accurate estimates of your total cost to own a home. It will take everything into account from land transfer fees to variable interest rates to your down payment. It also allows you to factor in related costs such as taxes or utilities. Finally, you can get a rough estimate of how much your preferred home would rent for if you wanted to use it as an income property or as an owner-occupied rental.


The Docusign app is available on both Google Play and the Apple Store. It allows you to sign documents electronically and keep a record of them on your phone and other devices. This means that you can sign an offer sheet, fill out mortgage documents or complete various other forms of paperwork wherever you happen to be. This is great for those who are constantly on the go and may not have time to schedule a formal meeting just to sign a document or two.


To find listings in any part of Canada, you can use the Realtor.ca app available on both Google Play and Apple Store. This app functions just like the American version of the app and allows you to download listing information to your phone and other devices. It will also provide you with a mortgage calculator as well as provide you with a virtual tour of the house as well as the surrounding neighbourhood.
