Floor Plans Made Easy

MagicPlan, is an amazing application that makes creating a floor plan of a house so easy a kid could render professional looking floor plans in minutes!

Magic Plan is the post PC revolution for floor plan creation. If you have ever watched an architect create a floor plan it requires CAD software, a tape measure, hours of time and much more. This is the reason why floor plans are so expensive to have created with a professional.

I am a strong believer in using a professional to make big decisions.  However, have you ever just wanted to know how a couch would fit in your living room or play around with the layout without contacting a professional?  Well now you can find out how that amazing couch you have been eyeing for the past year would fit in your living room with just a few clicks!

Here at TexasDreamProperty.com we use Magic Plan to create floor plans for all of our clients so that they can have a better understanding of the home that they are purchasing. If you would like more information on MagicPlan please contact Michael Carpenter at 512-522-6683.
