This week I want to tell you about an iPhone app that may be valuable to your clients. Often times we list homes for sale that a need a little TLC to get them ready for market. It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do, but convincing the seller of the value of that can be hard.
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could snap a picture of the room in question and with a few taps on the screen, “repaint” the walls? Well, you can do that, virtually with Home Depot’s FREE new app, “Project Color”.
Here is what they have to say about the app:
