It’s Sunday morning and you’re just about ready to set up for the morning’s open house and you’ve got everything from the coffee, pastries and sign-in sheet…but you forgot your pen?! Don’t panic yet. We’ve got a solution for you: download the Open Home Pro app onto your iPad, stat.

Considered one of the must-have apps for every real estate agent out there, the Open Home Pro app is a real lifesaver. At $14.99, it’s a bit on the pricy side, but is well worth the cost as it’ll help you go paperless while you farm for listings. Oh, and you won’t have to spend hours on end trying to decipher anyone’s handwriting. With the Open Home Pro app, guests can easily type in their name and contact information all on your iPad.

What are some other great features about this app?

  • Open Home Pro will email you a daily list that will help you sort out which leads are considered “hot” enough to follow up with
  • You can create the perfect listings by taking as many photos as you like—you’ve been given the gift of unlimited photos! So go ahead and show potential buyers that intricate detailing in the banister. If it’s worth showing, show it.
  • Your listings will look professional no matter what device it’s being viewed on, iPad, iPhone, or Android.
  • You won’t have to remember to send a thank you card—Open House Pro already took care of that for you before your guests even left the driveway. Even better, the thank you note will include a map and details of the listing and will alert them of the listing has price has changed.

Open Home Pro is currently only available for Apple devices but there are plans to expand to Android devices in the future.
