Ive found some great APPS for the Iphone and Ipad I wanted to share with everyone.  I don't know about you, but I don't usually have that much time to look over all the new apps that come out, and usually only add one that I've either read about or someone else has told me about.  And the best part is that these are all FREE!!!!


If you are looking to update your home with a new paint color, but don't know what you want or how it will look,  you need to download the FREE app by BEHR (paint company) This is my very favorite app right now as I'm trying to decide on wall colors for the house we are building.    You can pick either a room from their library or upload your own picture and pick wall colors to see how they will look. You can find any color, shade and hue you want from their color map.    It is absolutely amazing how a rooms feel can change when you switch the colors around.  You can make one wall one color and add an accent color to another.   You can even change out the color of the bedspread from the bedroom pictures in their library of rooms.  You can save your favorite colors so you don't have to worry about trying to find them again.

Sherwin Williams also has a great app ( only for iphone right now) for picking colors and matching colors by using your phone to take a picture of a color you like.  The formula is on each color so you can take it straight to your favorite paint store. 

MagicPlan is also a free app that will actually draw out your room to scale and make a blueprint of its dimensions so you can design your furniture layout or flooring. 


CrimeReports is a new one that I have recently added that will daily update any crime that is committed and reported in your area, as long as your local area offers this service.  You can find out about traffic accidents or if anyone in your neighborhood has been robbed etc... You can even set it up to send you alerts every time a new crime is reported.  Very easy to set up and use.  If you don't have a smart phone or Ipad you can even put this website on your computer

If you have any apps you think I or others might be interested in, please feel free to comment on this blog. 

I LOVE REFERRALS, so if you know of anyone that is looking to either buy or sell real estate,(doesn't have to be in Alabama)please send me an email, and I will see what I can do to help.

CHRISTMAS TIME IS SUCH A BUSY TIME OF YEAR, and with everything we try to do to make sure everything is perfect, we sometimes just don't think about the hazards this season does present. 

There are a lot of desperate people this time of year, and theft is usually at its highest point, so be alert and extra cautious when you are out shopping, and in your homes.
