I know that we are all area specialists! At least that seems to to be the popular claim!
And, if we are talking about the homes in a particular neighborhood we probably are.
But, how well do you know the services that are nearby? Do you know how far it is to the nearest gas station, Or Starbucks, or banks, or restaurants?
These are all things that prospective buyers would like to know, so you you need to know them too…or do you?
The AroundMe app (available for iPhone/iPad, Android and Windows Phone platforms) aims to solve that problem for you.
The basic app is free and is ad supported, so if you don’t mind putting up with the ads, just use the correct link below to download and install the version of the app that you need and you are all set.
In the iPhone version, $2.99 as an in app upgrade purchase, solves that one, and ads are gone.
Here is what they will help you locate once you allow the app to know your location (this is done once as part of the setup process):
Banks/ATM, Bars, Coffee Shops, Concerts, Gas Stations, Hospitals, Hotels, Movie Theaters
Movies, Nearby, Parking, Pharmacies, Pubs, Restaurants, Supermarkets, Taxis, Theaters
That last category will send you an email every morning with the day’s forecast unless you turn it off in settings.
So now when your buyer asks you where the nearest gas station is and how far away it is, you’ll know the answer! You may want to consider telling your client about the app as well.
One more use of this app is that if you find yourself in a strange city, you’ll be able to use the app to locate all of the services listed above!
