5 Apps Every Homeowner Should Have
Whether you recently bought your SunCrest home or you’re a seasoned SunCrest homeowner, these are 5 of the best mobile apps to help make owning a home easier.

Yelp (See also: Thumbtack, HomeAdvisor)
Yelp helps homeowners find whatever they need at the touch of a button. Whether it’s a recommendation for remodeling your kitchen or fixing a broken appliance, Yelp searches by your location, needs and wants, and supplies user submitted reviews to help find a contractor that’s suitable for you and what you want done to your home. You can even describe your project and get multiple estimates at once.

PlantSnap (See also: Picture This)
Plantsnap is like having a botanist, arborist, and horticulturist right in your pocket. It helps homeowners track their plants – indoor or outdoor. This is a great app to learn about what plants are in your yard and even has tips on how to care for them.

Project Color (See also: ColorSnap)
The Home Depot Project Color app can help you visualize what a certain color would look like in your entire space, without you having to leave to get samples. You can even take a picture of the room you want to paint, and see firsthand what that color would look like. It’s an easy way to (virtually) try it before you buy it.

Alexa (See also: GoogleHome)
Alexa. Turn on the lights. Set the temperature to 70 degrees. Alexa is a must have for any “smart home” owner. Plugs, thermostats, light bulbs, cameras, and televisions—consider Alexa the hub of your smart home products and smart home personal assistant.

Our Take
Owning a home can feel like a lot of work, but these app suggestions can help take stress off your plate, learn about your home, or integrate new technology that wasn’t around when your home was built. And apps are just the beginning; we’re seeing loads of new features like smart glass, solar panels, home automation, and heated… everything. If you’re considering a remodel, addition, upgrade, or a new home altogether, reach out! We’d love to provide a personal touch on what tech makes the most sense.
