A new app called Doorsteps Swipe is a godsend if you’re after a new home or apartment. I can see it also as a great rental real estate tool. The app presents houses or rooms in a deck of cards display. You swipe left or right to save or pass on the property. (Think Tinder—a wildly popular dating app—for real estate.) Both rental and purchase properties are shown.
Doorsteps gives you a quick idea of what properties are renting/selling for in a certain area. You can search based on your location, or draw up a region on the app’s map.
Right now, it’s available only on Apple devices. Android apps are in the works.
