4 Handy Apps For Buyers & Owners

When you own a home, sometimes there's too much to do and no way of knowing where to start. If you're paralyzed by indecision, home apps are a good way of streamlining the process. From finding a professional to help you renovate your kitchen to budgeting to budgeting tools and 3D interior designing software that lets you try before you buy that wallpaper., here are the apps that are worth downloading. 

Houzz

Created by a couple who were looking to remodel their home, Houzz is a website and app that acts as a portfolio for home improvement professionals to showcase their work. If you're looking to convert your space into a trendy loft or redesign your kitchen, you can research professionals and their previous work, then reach out for a quote via the contact details provided.

Mint

Your budget deserves better than a spreadsheet. Mint allows you to combine all of your finances in one place, syncing up bank accounts, credit cards, investments, and other accounts. Automate your budgeting process, track spending, and receive reminders for weekly or monthly bills to make sure you pay them on time. (Fun fact, paying your bills well before the due date increases your credit score.)

Homestyler

Before you start reorganizing the furniture or buying new d├ęcor, check out Homestyler. This interior design tool lets you design the perfect layout for free using templates. Sketch the floor plan, drag and drop furniture, change the aesthetic, and see your concept come to life. 

Credit Karma Canada

Don't wait for an annual credit report from credit bureaus like Equifax. Credit Karma Canada lets you check your credit score and credit report, at any time, for free. Using Karma Canada does not affect your credit score - instead, it registers as a "soft enquiry" which won't affect anything negatively. Monitor your financial progress towards big life goals by regularly checking in on your score without any fuss.
