Have you ever had a home buyer request floor plans for a home or condo they’re interesting in purchasing and you either don’t have access to the plans or they simply don’t exist? It seems to happen all the time to real estate agents in larger markets who specialize in high-rise condominiums or rentals. In buildings like Chicago’s John Hancock Center, for example, nearly every floor has a different and unique layout due to its tapering figure, and many residential skyscrapers around the country fall into this exact same category.
However, with the ever-growing use of mobile applications, coming up with a floor plan for your clients and looking like a super star real estate agent has never been easier. The Magic Plan app, appropriately named because of the lack of need for any measuring tools, gives users an easy and effective way to assemble an accurate and precise floor plan for any room in the house within seconds.
Available for the iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPod Touch, and your iPad, Magic Plan works by allowing users to hold up their phone and pinpoint each corner of a particular space using the camera on your mobile device. Furniture or objects being in the way doesn’t matter, so Magic Plan is perfect for an empty house or even a real estate listing that’s currently owner occupied.
Once you’re finished snapping photos of your room’s corners, Magic Plan will automatically create a perfectly recognizable floor plan that can be downloaded as a DXF, PDF, JPEG, and even in HTML for viewing on the internet. In addition, once you’ve created a floor plan for each room in your home or real estate listing, Magic Plan easily allows you to piece together each of the plans to create one larger floor plan of the entire home or condo for sale.
Because of the video tutorials the app comes with, mastering all of Magic Plan’s capabilities couldn’t be easier. Sensopia’s Magic Plan mobile application was voted #1 iPhone Utility in 64 countries worldwide and the #1 iPad Utility in 78 countries, so there’s no denying its functionality and convenience for a variety of household and real estate business purposes.
