Who Hates Measuring a House As Much As I Do...Raise Your Hand!!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with McKinney Realty Group
Who hates measuring a house as much as I do raise your hand!

One of the biggest reason that I tend to not like to take in a listing is the daunting task of measuring the house... OK, well, not the measuring its self, putting it all together to come up with the right number!

I consider myself a pretty intelligent person, for the most part...But since I began my real estate adventure I have been looking for a program that would make this job a little easier, one that didn't break the bank, that is!

Well today is a GREAT day because I am here to report I found it and your going to love the price...FREE! That's right I said it FREE...
Total for ipad
Its an iPad app called TOTAL! OK those of you with a Droid stop rolling your eyes because they have it for you too!  As with any app it took me a minute to figure it out but now that I have, WOW! SO easy and when I am done I just email it to myself and WOLA! My BIC is going to be thrilled to hear the he wont have to hunt me down for my sketch anymore!! No really!

Here is a screen shot while I was working through it and what the PDF looks like after I email it to myself...

My hand is up in the air waving like crazy Melissa!  Then my shoulders are shrugging because I don't have a smart phone with apps.  I've been delaying trading in my phone which I do love for a smart phone because frankly I'm intimidated.  But, you've just given me some much needed info to speed me to the next level of technology.  Thanks!

Got the Ipad but have not started using it much for real estate. Guess I need to get it off the desk.

The wrong square footage is not fun when the sale happens, and the actual real estate the town card, the appraiser, everyone uses is wrong. A few feet can be swallowed but debate on the second floor and wrestling on is it a 1.5 story, 1.75 or somewhere in between makes the fun and games rich!

I had heard of that app, Melissa, but your's is the first testimonial I've read about it. Thanks! I should check it out -- beats paying $99 or more to have a floor plan drawn up.

Melissa - our AR tech guru.  Where do you find all these great new things to try out?  I really like the look of the end result - would be a great listing presentation to provide to the home sellers and to have as an upload in the photo section of the MLS.

Melissa ~ FREE is GOOD!  How about an app to measure on the iPhone? I use My Measure Lite.

OK, that is an awesome program. The best part is you can add it right to our MLS as an attachment, so people can see the dimensions for themselves.
