Cre­ate your own floor plan in no time

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Tim Savoy

As a real es­tate agent, one of my go-to app rec­om­men­da­tions for buy­ers and sell­ers alike is RoomS­can. It al­lows you to dig­i­tally cre­ate a floor plan that is sur­pris­ingly ac­cu­rate, all with lit­tle ef­fort.

For sell­ers, that means we can eas­ily cre­ate hand­outs for open houses. For buy­ers, it’s a fun and con­ve­nient way to mea­sure whether their fur­ni­ture will fit while they wait dur­ing a home in­spec­tion.

The best part: It’s sim­ple to use. Just tap the phone once against each wall of a room, and the app will draw an out­line of the room’s shape — and in­clude mea­sure­ments of the length of walls as well as the room’s to­tal square footage.

The ba­sic ver­sion costs $0.99 on iOS, though for $4.99 you can pur­chase the Pro ver­sion for more ad­vanced fea­tures. The app is not avail­able on An­droid.
