Real estate mobile apps for agents and brokers aren’t cheap, as it takes lot of investment and time for a development company to create the right app with the right features for your needs. On average, real estate apps can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000.
“Why such a wide pricing range?” you may be asking. That’s a great a question. Let us explain.

Depending on the particular features and functionality, the budget for your app can increase. The budget can really grow as long as the owner of the app is will to invest the time and money into make their app extremely intuitive for users.
The type of operating system (Android vs. iOS) can determine price
The cost of your app is also very dependent on the type of operating system your app will utilize. For iPhone apps, developers have more adoption ability. According to Developers.magmic.com, “iOS developers only worry about making their app features compatible with the 3 latest iOS versions…Android’s operating system, on the other hand, is much more fragmented.”
However, app developers have the ability to write, on average, 40% more code on Android than on iOS. A lot of this code is auto-generated, but it’s still code. It just needs to be read, debugged, and maintained, which can sometimes be an undertaking.
A few tips that can help you when choosing a real estate mobile app developer:
- Hold your developer accountable. Set specific deadlines and schedule of payments for completion. And if your developer hasn’t already done this, that may be a red flag.
- Try and find a developer who is part of a team or company. Make sure they are who they say they are and make sure their credentials can be verified.
- If the job isn’t going how you planned or you aren’t “meshing” with the developer, don’t be afraid to cancel the contract with the first week. This could save you a headache in the long run. Keep in mind, there could be penalties or loss of deposits, so read your contract carefully.
