Landlord Quick Tip

Tip #141: Easy as Pie!

floor planIf you have ever struggled to create a floor plan for your rental property, than you might want to try the MagicPlan app:

MagicPlan measures the size of a room, draws the floor plan and creates a DXF file, PDF document, JPEG images and a web site with an interactive floor plan.

This allows you to provide the plan to a prospective tenant, allows the tenant to confirm furniture placement, and can be a useful tool in developing a property checklist for inspections.

The tool is also handy for landlords who must register a floor plan with their city building department to get a rental license.

It’s as easy as taking a picture!

MagicPlan runs on iPhone 4 & 4S, iPod Touch (4th generation) and iPad 2 (OS 4.3.1 required), and  is free to download.
