For first-time buyers, everything about finding and buying your perfect can be difficult. Thankfully, there are many apps that are designed for property hunters to make the process a little less stressful, while providing a wealth of information to help you find and move into your ideal new home.

Even during the lockdown, the interest in moving homes has remained high, and as the restrictions are eased, more people will be likely to resume their house hunting. We have five apps that will help get you organised.

1. Rightmove / Zoopla

This app will show you all the properties for sale on both Rightmove and Zoopla, but more than that, you will also have access to local information such as schools and public transport links. Both apps use GPS technology to allow you to see properties for sale as you wander around different streets.

2. Hoffr

Hoffr is an easy way to access private property sales in the UK. It has an ‘open home’ feature that lets you request viewing times, and sellers can also accept or reject requests. It’s free to contact sellers or buyers, and there are no registration or application fees involved.

3. Crime map

If you are considering moving to a new area, then it might be handy to be aware of the local crime rates, and the types of crime, especially if you are going to be living alone. The Crime Map app provides statistics on crime levels in any area in England and Wales and compares it to the national average.

4. AroundMe

AroundMe will help you find places and amenities such as pharmacies, supermarkets, banks or parks if you’re unfamiliar with the area you are moving to.

5. Houzz

Finding inspiration on how to decorate your new home is simple with Houzz, which provides the chance to browse through 16 million photos of home exteriors and interiors, allowing you to build a mood board, as well as giving links to buy products and even professional advice from experts.
