Five Must-Know Land Real Estate Apps for 2018

With the New Year just around the corner, we wanted to share with you some land real estate apps that can help you take your real estate business to the next level in 2018. Whether your resolution is to be more efficient, effective, or productive, we’ve compiled a list with the down-low on the top apps for land real estate professionals to download. How do we know these apps are so great? We’ve pulled them from the RLI Technology & Resource Center created by agents for agents as a member benefit.

Adobe Acrobat
As a land agent, we know you’re always on the go, which means so is your office. The Adobe Acrobat app is an all in one tool which allows you to easily and quickly access PDF documents no matter where they are downloaded from online. This intuitive tool makes reading documents on your phone or tablet easy with search, zoom, and scrolling functionality. Plus, you can review PDFs and add your own comments or mark-ups which you can easily pass along to staff or clients. And the fun doesn’t stop there, this app allows you to fill out forms on the go as well as e-sign any PDF doc. Finally, you have to check out its easy scan functionality which can turn a picture of anything into a shareable PDF.

CamCard
Keeping track of paper files, and especially small ones like business cards, can be a hassle. This next app proves a great way to turn your paper business cards digital to make them easier to keep track of and to use the information off of. All you have to do is snap a pic of a business card and the app keeps track of the information in a database like format. You can easily add notes, exchange e- cards, and access your contacts from anywhere!

EverNote
There’s a good reason EverNote calls themselves “your second brain.” This app has is great for agents trying to remember a lot of different things at once when they are being pulled in a million different directions. It’s not just an app for taking notes but also offers a way to declutter and work smarter by creating notes with checklists, tables, links, and even audio-snips all in a searchable central location. Plus, it also has a helpful business version of the app for purchase that allows sharing and collaboration—great for working with your team or clients.

FarmLogs
Okay so this app isn’t necessarily for your business — though you could use it that way, too! — but if you own farmland or have clients who do, it should definitely be on your radar. This app is designed to help you manage your property by giving insights into field conditions, soil maps, crop heat accumulation, yield threats, real-time futures prices, and more! You can even use for everything from taking and sharing notes while out on a property or managing a budget.

Sumo
Looking to grow your prospect list and capture leads from your website? Sumo helps agents to increase inbound traffic to their website and capture leads. From adding share buttons that make it easier for visitors to share your content to creating pop-ups that capture emails of hot leads, this app is designed to be a powerful way to grow your business.
