If you want to flip houses and run your real estate investing business like a pro, these key tech tools and resources will empower you to be a more productive and organized investor. Today, technology has enabled many investors to run lean, keep overhead down, and create more structure within their organization. For anyone looking to pull in big profits and grow their wealth through real estate investing, running your business like a business is an absolute necessity. Here are 6 tech tools I personally use in my own 6 figure flipping business and recommend to anyone wanting to streamline their processes and take their REI game to the next level. Whether you are just starting out, or looking to make some minor tweaks in your existing business, each one of these tools can be a valuable resource.
Wunderlist and Evernote are two apps that have been major game changers for me. Wunderlist is a great tool for creating lists that you can share with your team to ensure you’re all on the same page. It allows you to set up alerts, assign tasks, and even chat within the app. I love creating new “projects” for my flips and labeling all the “to-do’s” in our checklist within the folder. I’ll have my contractors, staff, and project manager operate out of the app so we can keep things up to date at all times and have an internal communication system where everyone knows what’s going on. I found that Wunderlist is great for our team because it is simple, it’s cloud-based, and its accessible from practically any device.
Evernote is another favorite of mine that I just couldn’t leave off the list. It’s known for being one of the best note taking apps in all the app stores. They’ve got some great features like checklists, sharing options, you can store photos or voice notes, and it’s organization options are the best I’ve found. When I go look at properties and do my walk-through s, I take notes of everything that needs to be done to it. I’ll create a new note for each property and then I’ll take pictures and leave any voice memo’s that are pertinent. Then, once I’m done, I can email or share my notes with anyone. Overall, both of these apps are great tools for any investor when it comes to organization and systems, and the best part is they are both free.99!
