#2) Realtor.ca App

Realtor.ca is your best bet to in finding “the most comprehensive list of MLS® System listings for sale and for rent”. It is the official Real Estate app offered by The Canadian Real Estate Association and offers the user listings from all over Canada. It is extremely user-friendly – once you download the app, it prompts you to ‘Set your mortgage’, and then giving you the option to sign in using either your Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn or your email. However, if you are just looking to casually browse, you can skip this option and go straight into searching for listings by locations or by listing ID numbers. Piece of cake!

#3) Zoocasa App 

This real estate app is quick, easy and convenient. It offers a service similar to the Realtor.ca app, giving you access to listings from across Canada. The difference is it gives you the option to estimate the cost of your home. There are two options: you can either get a professional market analysis or simply do a quick estimate, both of which are FREE! This app makes it simple to search listings in various locations with a user-friendly dashboard. The app even offers a subscription to their monthly newsletter, a Buyer’s guide, a Buyer’s checklist and a Seller’s Guide. You can’t go wrong!
