Buying, renting or selling a home are equal parts exciting and intimidating. Sure, the joy of finding your dream home and the thrill of seeing your home value increase are major highs. But the actual process is complicated at best and dreadful at worst. But one Canadian real estate app is hell-bent on changing that equation. Enter: The Canadian Home!
The app is a major rage with buyers, sellers and renters in Ontario and deservingly so!
Simply put, The Canadian Home is a one-stop-shop for all home buying, selling and renting needs. And when we say one-stop-shop, we aren’t just talking about the 6 million+ listings across Ontario on the app. The user-focused app, in fact, offers a ton of smart, interactive features.
Here are six of the many reasons that have made the app an instant hit—
It provides comprehensive search and relevant info
The app makes exploring properties a piece of cake. First off, you can explore multiple cities and neighbourhoods at the same time. Second off, they have an enhanced search feature. So, you can filter your search based on neighbourhood, property type, beds, baths, square footage, etc. But you can also refine your search based on proximity to schools, school ranking, rental yield and more. There is also a market demand scale that tells you if the property falls in a buyer’s market, a seller’s market or a balanced market. And of course, you can book showings too.
It has a one-of-a-kind chat feature
Coordinating with your realtor and your family across emails, SMSs, Whatsapp and other platforms is quite a tedious and unnecessary step. And The Canadian Home found an easy solution to removing it. They provided an in-app chat feature that you can use to communicate with your family, your friends, your realtor or anyone else involved in the home buying/ renting/ selling process. That way all your real estate-related communication stays in one place.
It gives you key financial info
As numerically-challenged people, this aspect is our fave! So, you have the usual mortgage calculator. But there is also an expense calculator. They give you a complete breakdown of the expense along with the estimated price of the home (not to be confused with the list price). That way you won’t over or under-bid.
It sends real-time notifications
Another interesting feature is that the app sends you real-time notifications for properties you have favourited. Whether it is sold or taken off the market or has any price fluctuations, you’ll know as it happens.
It offers unreal seller benefits
In addition to expert advice, professional support and estimated house value, the app has another seller perk that stands out. Their $25,000 interest-free loans. Yes, sellers can loan the money interest-free to cover renovations and other selling-related costs.
With all these features and counting, you’d think signing up for the app would be a huge blow to the bank. But you’d be much mistaken. The app is free to use. All you have to do is input your name, number and email to sign-up. And you are good to go.
With all this and more, it’s obvious that The Canadian Home app is worth every bit of the hype surrounding it. Go ahead and try it out yourself. The app is available to download for both Apple and Android.
