It's time to talk about apps on Chrome OS and which apps are the best ones for Real Estate Professionals! The best apart about this is that the same apps that are available in the Google Play Store for your Android phones are also available to use on devices that run on Chrome OS such as Chromebooks (laptops), Chromeboxes (desktops), and Chromebases (all-in-one desktops).
Microsoft Office: Yes, all your favorite Microsoft Office applications work on Chrome OS. Word, Excel, Powerpoint, One Drive, and Outlook all have apps that are easy to use on Chrome OS. All you have to do is download them, log into your Microsoft Account, and you are all ready to go! Microsoft did a great job in making these apps functional.
Google Apps: Docs, Slides, Sheets, Gmail, and Google Drive work seamlessly on Chrome OS. For those out there who prefer Google's applications to Microsoft's, Google's applications come pre-installed on Chrome OS computers ready for you to go. They are great for teams that collaborate remotely, which in Real Estate may be more apparent now than ever before.
Homesnap Pro: Yes, the Android App for Homesnap Pro works well on Chrome OS also. It is a great tool for Real Estate agents and Brokers. The regular Homesnap App works great for people looking to buy and/or sell real estate and yes, that too works well on Chrome OS.
DocuSign: DocuSign is a great tool saying that we are not too far away from a time when e-signatures will become more prevalent than "wet" signatures. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and will work on your Chrome OS device with ease.
RPR: Realtors Property Resource is also a great tool for Realtors to use, and the Android App is available in the Google Play Store for Chrome OS devices as well!
Web-Based systems: Many MLS systems are web-based, and anything web-based can be done on a Chrome OS device just like it can be done on any other computer. Whether it's Realist, MLS, online contract software, or ValuTrax for Business Brokers out there, the beauty of them all is that they can be accessed from any computer that has internet access whether they run Chrome OS, Mac OS, or Windows.
Just wanted to do a quick overview on some apps that work great on Chrome OS! Thanks for reading!
