Once you get past the mouthful of a name that is Better Homes and Gardens ® Real Estate Home Selection Assistant, you’ll likely be surprised at what, exactly, this app does. Although its name isn’t entirely misleading, most users will expect a Home Selection Assistant to include actual real estate listings. This is not the case.

Instead, Home Selection Assistant aims to streamline the process of choosing a home, once you’ve already decided on a few to see. While you’re touring a home, you can use the app to take photos and make notes about the property. Buying a house or condo isn’t a split decision for most, and when looking at tens (or hundreds) of properties their qualities—both positive and negative—can often blend together. The BH&G app is designed to replace your pen, notebook and digital camera, and enhance your memory so you can accurately recall a property when it’s decision time. Plus, with everything stored in your iPhone, you can easily send photos and information to others for input.

The app also uses your current location to pull up local information such as schools, population demographics, crime rates, points of interest and home values and recent sales. You can enter addresses or zip codes manually, too.
