TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION IN THE REAL ESTATE REALM
The real estate industry is facing disruption on two fronts: brokers are getting younger, and technology is changing how business is done. With older professionals retiring and recent grads entering the industry, it’s not surprising that this shift in demographics has brought other changes.
All generations are embracing technology at a fast rate, using the latest software in new and innovative ways to accomplish more in less time and for less money in the long run.
Historically, technology and innovation adoption rates have been driven by how good the commercial real estate market is. When the market is strong, professionals often stick to their steadfast practices. Why change if you’re still making money doing what you’re used to?
However, when the market starts to fall, people search for solutions that will increase business and revenue.
Currently, the commercial real estate market is thriving. Despite the rapid decline of malls, the emergence of new types of shared or rentable office spaces, and the trend of e-retailers and digitally native brands opening, brick-and-mortar stores have helped the industry stay strong.
With this market growth has come the unique phenomenon of Virtual Assistants as a professional must-have whether as Executive Assistants, Transactions Coordinators, Social Media Marketing Specialists or as Lead Generation Specialists. Due to a strong market and the advancements of technology the idea of Virtual Assistants is innovating how business people work on the tedious administrative tasks every day.
Virtual Assistants aren’t a new concept. In fact, widespread adoption and a thriving market suggest that technology has continuously streamlined and improved the work that real estate brokers are doing on behalf of their clients and communities. Professionals are working with clients in new, more efficient ways that aren't burning them out or keeping them in the office for nights and weekends away from family. Deals are being made and closed faster. Properties that sat dormant are being recognized with new potential by new audiences with platforms of various social media networks.
The adaptation of having Virtual Assistants across various industries has helped fuel today’s thriving and fast paced market.
