7 Benefits of Using Axio’s Apartment Data App

Find Property Information On the Go

By Dave Sorter | Tuesday, February 28, 2017


When apartment developers and potential property buyers are in the field to scout out land for potential construction or assess existing properties, they don’t necessarily want to fire up their laptops to acquire metrics about apartments and student housing in the surrounding area.

That’s where AXIOMobile® comes in. The apartment analytics industry’s first mobile app gives clients the freedom to access detailed property information at and near their location with just a couple of screen taps. That way, industry professionals will be able to get the lay of the land while actually on the land in question.

Here are seven benefits of using AXIOMobile.

  • GPS-enabled locator: The app’s GPS capability pinpoints your location and displays the apartment or student housing properties (choose which one in “settings”) around you. Discover average rents for a property and every floor plan within it, as well as occupancy rates and concessions. You can choose between a map view and a list view.
  • Acquire the latest sales information: Choose “Sales View” in your settings and find the last sales date and sales price for each property on the map or in your list. The sales comps figures help potential buyers and sellers determine a competitive price for their target properties based on what similar properties in the area achieved.
  • Comprehensive filtering capabilities: AXIOMobile’s default setting displays all properties in the surrounding area, regardless of construction status. But users can filter to see only stabilized, lease-up, under-construction and planned properties, or any combination thereof – giving users a look at the pipeline in any given area. Filtering by construction date, rent level, sales date and sales price gives users even more control to zero in on properties of interest.
  • Choose your view: Pick either map view or satellite view. Users can even zoom in to access Google Street View to take a peek at the street-level surroundings of a target property or a full block.
  • Get directions or call a property: Click the car icon on a property listing and get instant Google Maps driving directions to the location. A phone icon lets you tap to call the property.
  • True ownership information: AXIOMobile lists the true owner of most properties, as well as the management company, so buyers and brokers can be more effective in contacting prospective sellers.
  • The map changes with location: It’s won’t give you an up-to-date traffic report, but the AXIOMap tracks changes in location as the user moves. Users can stop and see a new map of surrounding properties to check out. Caution: Don’t use while driving.

Those are just some of the various benefits of AXIOMobile. It’s part of all Axiometrics subscriptions, so there’s no reason not to download.
