In this day and age there really is a app for everything and they are designed to make our lives easier. Some people like to stick to the old way of doing things and hey, if its not broke don’t fix it but, for those of you who embrace modern technology and what it brings to the table then we have listed the top 3 apps that every landlord must have to make your job much easier. 
1. AroundMe
Any good real estate investor is going to constantly be looking for deals and the issue with this is sometimes you can end up in unfamiliar territory or even another city or state. AroundMe allows you to quickly find out information about your surroundings including but not limited to banks, gas stations, businesses, hospitals, hotels, movie theaters, restaurants, and supermarkets. It lets you know the distance, phone numbers, directions, and turn-by-turn GPS navigation. This app has a really cool feature that allows you to see a real-world view of your surroundings called “Augmented Reality”. The cost of this app is FREE!
2. DocuSign 
This app is awesome because it allows you and your tenants to sign documents electronically and get signatures easily from your smart phone, or tablet. They eliminate printers, paper, fax machines, and the old “scan and email” technique by using e-signatures for your real estate services, and any other business you may have. No worries, e-signatures are completely legal and enforceable in court, even the IRS utilizes them. DocuSign lets you guide your signers by placing “sign here” tags and fields that show precisely where to sign, initial or add information.  DocuSign is easy to use, and you can upload your documents from PDF, Microsoft documents, and more. You can send and receive documents by email. The best part is all documents are stored on your device and you also have the choice of storing them in your iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, Box, Egnyte or Salesforce account. There is a free, but limited, version, if you request more than 5 signatures, you will need to upgrade to the $15/mo plan. Your tenants or contractors may sign unlimited documents using the app at no charge to them.
3. Cozy
Cozy is not yet an app but it is an awesome online software (www.cozy.co) that allows you to screen tenants, perform credit checks, and collect rent online.  This software is free for the tenant but $9/mo per unit for landlords. This software is great for seasoned landlords and landlords with multiple units, as it is a great solution for bringing the landlord/tenant relationship into the 21st century.
