If you’re on the hunt for a new home, investment property or just enjoy window shopping for real estate, here are the five best property apps to help simplify the process.

From disjointed conversations with multiple parties to information scattered across several platforms, searching for a property has historically been an administrative nightmare, as potential buyers scramble to piece together the complicated real estate puzzle and find their forever homes.

New digital platforms aim to do away with these frustrations, making light work of the property buying experience. Today’s property apps merge traditional property listings with social media, allowing users to message their property-buying partners, real estate agents and buyers’ agents through one unified system.


Kohab provides a platform for you to communicate and collaborate on property in one destination – either in a browser or with the app – by setting up personalised ‘Dream Boards’, which house your dream properties and integrate messaging, alerts, inspection times and property statuses.

Real estate agents, property agents, buyers’ agents and brands can also feature their properties in their own publicly listed boards, so whether your 20% deposit is burning a hole in your pocket or you’re just looking for some home inspiration, Kohab makes the journey that little bit easier.


Created by Australian digital bank UBank, the UrHome property app lets you browse almost any property listing in Australia or find a property based on the suburb you’re looking in.

Along with property stats and agents’ contact details, the app allows users to rate properties based on their individual requirements, so if a big backyard or garage is one of your non-negotiables, you can easily filter out the places that don’t measure up.


If you’re on a strict budget, this clever property app from Onthehouse makes it easy to find the suburbs you’re most likely to be able to afford, helping to narrow down your property search within your parameters.

Once you’ve tracked down a place you love, do some research within the app to find out how much similar properties in the area have been sold for, before making an offer.



Packed full of historical property data, current value estimates and detailed information on a suburb’s current residents, realestateVIEW’s property app will help make searching for a property as easy and quick as possible.

If you just missed out on purchasing the place of your dreams, the app has a function to search for similar properties in the same area for sale or rent (in case you want to try before you buy!).


You’ve probably relied on the website a lot to help make your property dreams come true over the years, and Realestate.com.au’s app provides a handy extension to the listings website.

Research the average property price within certain suburbs, look up the estimated value of a property and get notified if a house you’re following is sold or an inspection time changes, keeping you up-to-speed with all the important updates relating to your property hunt.
