Going Mobile: 3 Of The Most Useful Apps For Homeowners And Renters

 

Today's digital world means that we have a lot of resources right at our fingertips.

Mobile apps help us organize our busy lives and are readily available on our cellphones.

The chores of being a homeowner or renter are endless. However, just like anything else in our lives, apps are here to make things just a bit easier.

These three apps are some of the most useful ones available on the market and are sure to become new favorites.

1. Encircle

 
This app is a valuable tool in documenting your belongings. If the unthinkable were to occur, such as fire or burglary, you will need an inventory of your possessions.

Unfortunately, a lot of people procrastinate when they activate their homeowner's and renter's policies, and will be doomed to receive the policy minimums if they aren't able to prove documentation of their belongings.

Anyone with a smartphone or tablet are able to inventory their homes easily. You can take pictures of items, store serial numbers and receipts, and even easily export the information as a spreadsheet with the push of a button.

Luckily Encircle is available for both Android and iOS.

2. Color Capture by Benjamin Moore

 

Have you ever been out at a store doing some shopping and wondered if the color matched what you have at home?

Well this free app takes out the guesswork involved with color matching.

Color Capture by Benjamin Moore allows you to snap a quick picture of something on your phone and find matching and coordinating colors.

Pictures aren't limited to paint colors. With a quick press of a button you can capture the color of a pillow or even a vase and the app will recommend matching paint colors out of over 3,500 available by Benjamin Moore.

This app is available for iOS and Android.
Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.benjaminmoore.colorcapture4&hl=en_US

3. HomeZada

 

Taking care of your home is a lot of work. There are a lot of things that need your attention.

Upkeep, DIY maintenance, budgeting... the list goes on and on.

This app is especially valuable to homeowners. It can track all of your home expenses, such as budgeting and taxes.

 

Additionally, it creates a seasonal home maintenance checklist. It even reminds you when to change your air filter.

HomeZada also has the capability of helping you create an inventory of your home's assets, just like the Encircle app we mentioned above.

You can even plan and manage any remodeling projects you are working on.

This app touts itself as your "Digital Home Manager".

There is a free trial, however this app requires a subscription. While researching for this blog post, a pop-up gave us a promo code for 15% off a yearly subscription: zadanow
