Just Released RE CALC Real Estate Calculator in the App Store for iPhone and iPad.
I’ve been in the real estate industry for over 15 years and a real estate instructor for 4 of those years. In my experience, calculating dates, prorates and mortgage payments are three of the most common math problems I’d like to do faster and easier. I’m also a bleeding edge techie type of person, so I’m always looking for apps to make my life and work easier. My search to find a real estate calculator app to solve all these problems led me to one solution, make it yourself!
I searched and found apps that could do some of these things, like the date calculator or mortgage calculator. However every app I downloaded was either confusing to use, had glitchy sliders to enter interest rates and loan amounts or just didn’t work for real estate. Some wanted me to sign up for free trials or create an account, NOPE. Plus, there weren’t any prorate apps at all.
What I wanted wasn’t rocket science, just some basic math and date calculations, how hard could it be? We real estate agents are a resourceful bunch, so I decided to make it myself. If I could make a tool that I would use on a daily basis, I could release it to other agents and make their lives a little easier too.
What I found after about 12 months of development and coding is that there’s a good reason, I couldn’t find an app that did everything I wanted … it was really hard to build! Dates are particularly difficult to automate because of leap years and business days. Even the basic calculator wasn’t so basic since I wanted to be able to see a history of what numbers I’ve already calculated and include a backspace key so I can erase without deleting all my prior work. However, after many late nights, I’m finally ready to launch RE CALC Real Estate Calculator.
This is built by Real Estate Agents for Real Estate Agents. It’s free as long as you don’t mind the ads here and there or use the in-app purchase to remove all the ads forever. We don’t collect any user data and we have no sign-ups, trials or passwords. Also, I haven’t forgotten about all you android agents either, I plan to release an android version in the future too. Honestly though, it’ll take a while, I’m not a big tech company, I’m just an agent with a laptop!
I really hope you love it and it makes your work easier. If you have any feedback, comments or suggestions, I’m all ears.
