IS YOUR BUSINESS TECH-SAVVY ENOUGH?
When American entrepreneur, investor, and software engineer Marc Andreessen famously said, “Software is eating the world,” that statement included our houses, office buildings, and yards, too.
Nowadays, any industry that technology takes on doesn’t stay the same for very long. Airbnb uprooted hospitality. Uber and Lyft changed transportation. Netflix not only changed entertainment but shifted routines and enabled on-demand consumption. The list goes on.
Technology touches every aspect of the real estate industry today. Each time tech puts its stamp on an industry, consumer behaviors shift and their expectations go up. Buyers can see a birds-eye view of a neighborhood 2,000 miles away through drone footage. You can buy a house online without ever taking out a pen to sign a contract. Searching for new listings is as simple as downloading an app, choosing your location, and awaiting notifications with options.
More than 70 percent of today’s buyers search for homes online, and 85 percent of real estate agents use texting to get work done. Digging to find information on schools, demographics, and crime statistics is a task of the past. Now websites and apps make this data accessible, so it’s easier than ever to make informed decisions.
So what does this mean for real estate agents?
