Real estate apps can help you narrow down which neighborhood you want to be in while also helping you stay in your budget.

This app is really cool because it is backed by the Census Bureau, and uses information from the American Community Survey to produce its data-rich community guides. Many home buyers want to know things like the median age of its residents, racial makeup and education level. This app allows you the ability to see what a neighborhood is really like prior to putting in that offer by providing information on more than 40 topics for every neighborhood in the nation. Dweller is definitely one of those apps that most home buyers do not utilize, we are thinking that it may be they just don’t know it exists.
