iFlipTips is a versatile app that has a range of diverse uses. The app is primarily a note-taking app but thanks to the different mediums available – text, video, audio and image – the app has many different applications in a variety of situations. The structure of the app means it can function as a simple yet effective Real Estate catalogue, enabling Real Estate agents and consumers alike to store details of properties to view later, and share them with others.
For Real Estate agents
Real Estate agents can utilize this free app to create a property catalogue of the homes they are currently selling or renting. By using iFlipTips, you can organize the properties into different categories, for example by area, by property type, or by number of bedrooms. When talking to prospective clients, this means you can easily retrieve details of relevant properties, whether they are looking for an apartment in a certain area, of a house with certain facilities, and you don’t have to rely on your memory to recall all the important details.
The text box, image, video and audio can all be used to provide a comprehensive description of a property. Using the text box to list the specifications of the property, you can take a video of the most important rooms and features, include an image of the outside appearance, and even provide an audio description. Once you’ve finished recording the details, simply upload them as an iTips-Ideas card and you will be able to retrieve them quickly and simply.
Not only can you use these details to keep track of properties on your portfolio and answer questions quickly and efficiently in person, you can also share details of properties on social networks and via email. When prospective clients ask for details of suitable properties, simply tap “Share”, then “Email” and you can send them the necessary details. The content of the text box forms the body of the email, while recipients can click on links to access the image, video and audio files from the iFlipTips server. This way of sharing information means you don’t have to send large files from your iPhone, and your clients don’t have to download large files on their cell or computer to access the video and audio clips.
The app’s social networking capabilities help you showcase your best properties using Facebook or Twitter. Use the app to upload details to your agency’s Facebook fan page, or, if you’re an independent realtor, to your own Facebook page or Twitter stream. It’s an easy way to promote new properties for rent or sale, as well as keep prospective buyers informed about any discounts or open house events.
For buyers and renters
As well as being useful for realtors, iFlipTips can also help buyers and renters. Using the app, you can create a catalogue of prospective properties you’ve viewed, enabling you to compare them, and keep track of which properties you might be interested in viewing again. You can also use the app to email details to friends and family when you need a second opinion. iFlipTips in an ideal companion to iREcal – real estate communications and collaboration system.
