Apps to Stay Connected

As our local governments and national health organizations continue to encourage or require lifestyle changes that dramatically alter our everyday lives, we must remember that social distancing does not mean social isolation. Our real estate agents want all of our family members, friends, and neighbors in our Cedar Rapids communities to never forget that you're not alone in these trying times. Advances in technology enable us to stay connected now more than ever before. Whether you're interested in keeping in touch with family members across the country or checking in on a neighbor across the street, use these apps to help you stay connected while social distancing safely.

  1. Houseparty
    Yes, you can still have a house party while social distancing — at least virtually. The Houseparty app is a video chatting application that allows up to eight users to spend virtual time together face-to-face. Free to download, this app uses a split-screen feature so all each user can see all other participants at the same time. This is ideal for intimate gatherings of close friends, small clubs or associations, or even to get the whole family together no matter how far away each member is.

Dog Friendly Neighborhoods

Have some beautiful Cedar Rapids homes for sale caught your eye? If you're one in the nearly half of U.S. households with a dog, you may have more to think about than the commuting distance and the number of bedrooms. Ensure your pup will love your new neighborhood when you know how to spot a dog-friendly neighborhood. Here's what you should keep an eye out for:

  1. Plenty of Sidewalks
    Sidewalks can be dismissed as "nice to have" features, but this should be at the top of your must-have list. You'll walk Fido often, so you'll want wide, brightly lit, and well-paved sidewalks for enjoyable walks, especially in the late evening or predawn hours. Bonus point if the neighborhood has special dog stations with garbage cans and plastic bags on almost every block.
