Findaproperty.com search app

Using the Findaproperty.com search app you can utilise your Android device's GPS functionality to find and review homes for sale and rent in and around your current location, rather than pacing the streets of the UK in a bid to locate your dream home.

With this simple app you can quickly and easily discover how much you can borrow for a mortgage based on your salaries, as well as how much the monthly repayments will be.


With Zoopla's free app, not only can you search for homes for sale or rent in the UK, you can also get estimates on how much a property is worth, see the prices a property has sold for since 1995 and even review local market data such as average home values by area.

CTax Easy Calculator

Before you put an offer on a property, it's worth using this app to work out exactly how much council tax you'll end up paying.

Make Your Home

Once you've bought a home or found a place to rent, then the Make Your Home app  will come in useful offering some great tips and ideas for internal décor.
