Finding a new home to buy or rent can be time consuming; there’s so much to look out for, and after you’ve seen several properties, it can be hard to remember them all. House Inspector App offers a range of useful tools to help you remember the houses you have visited and compare them to one another.
The app allows for details of all the viewed properties to be saved, including the address, as well as the purchase or rental price. You can also look up the properties on a map and apply your own personal star rating to each property you're viewing.
Another useful app feature is the interactive list of the things to look out for when you’re viewing properties. This consists of questionnaires that are split into different topics about the house, such as Heating & Plumbing, Electricity, Roofing & Guttering, Windows, Damp and more. For example, you will be asked to check for signs of subsidence, as well as condition of the windows, electric circuits, guttering and more. Simply mark the answers to these simple yes or no questions as you walk around the property and House Inspector App saves your answers for future reference. These questionnaires automatically give the property an overall rating based on your findings, which is intended to allow easy comparison between properties and to remind you of each house you viewed.
The app also enables you to store photos of properties visited under the property entry and add notes to each photo. This way you can look back through the photos at any time and remind yourself of everything you have seen.
So, next time you go on a house viewing, remember to take the House Inspector App with you, it is your perfect house viewing companion.

I don't know about you, but the first thing I check when viewing a new property to rent is always the water pressure. For me, there's nothing worse than jumping into the shower in the morning only to find the water luke warm. There are so many things that need to be checked on when inspecting a new property to rent or buy that the water temperature is an easy thing to miss. But now there's an app that will make sure that you won't miss any of the vitally important features of your potential new home.

There's even a map so you can look up exactly where each property is located and you can apply your own star rating to each at the end of this he viewing. The fully interactive check list / questionnaire is split into numerous topics including heating and plumbing, electricity, roofing and guttering, windows and damp etc and you can simply tick a yes or a no as you walk around. At the end of the viewing, the app will give the property an overall rating based on those findings so you can compare it to others viewed.
There's even a feature where you can add your own notes as you go. How is the proximity to neighbors? Are the walls or ceiling stained and in good condition? Is the garden overgrown? And, of course, the most important one - how is the water pressure in the shower??? Of most interest to some would be the added compass feature that lets you check which direction certain features face in the property. Great for your feng shui. The app itself is easy to navigate with a clear and concise interface that's easy to read.
