A new application called Vire aims to save real estate professionals time and money when it comes to property inspections. Vine is a free iOS application with no limits on users or the number of properties, items or inspections carried out.
Vire is aimed at property managers, landlords and real estate professionals who routinely carry out entry, exit and other inspections. The idea is to save time and money by scheduling inspections, sending entry notices upon booking inspections, calculating optimal driving routes between properties, providing comprehensive checklists and sharing online reports. The app also has a paid version with additional features such as customized field types, branding and reports available.
Vire bills itself as the most cost-effective property inspection solution around, for individuals or teams. It's packed with numerous features for a free application, with no limitations on the number of users, properties or inspections help teams make the most out of the app without upgrading, unless certain customizations are required.
There are advantages to using an app for inspections, as opposed to paper inspection forms. For one thing, with Vire users can save their property inspection details online. Tenant contracts and historical records of previous inspections can all be viewed at a glance through the app. Inspections are made easier too, as users only have to swipe through a checklist. All relevant details required for managing a property are stored securely in one place, and readily available with a few clicks.
The application also links to the iPhone's camera, so issues can be photographed and comments added by both property managers and tenants.
