Real Estate & Technology Go Hand-In-Hand

Real Estate & Technology Go Hand-In-Hand

 

As Agents, the latest technology is key to keeping up with the times and continuing a steady business flow.  From Buyers searching for properties to Sellers marketing their home, an ad in the newspaper just doesn't cut it anymore.  We are WAY beyond that now! 

 

According to this infographic from CAR.org, an astounding 89% say they use online resources in the process of home buying.  It doesn't end at searching for a property either.  Researching an Agent, Lender, property values, neighborhoods, etc., is all part of the process.  Having an Agent that is tech savvy on top of being markey savvy is the way to go.

 

Real Estate & Technology Go Hand-In-Hand

 

When I'm working with a Buyer, we use MLS searches as well as e-mail blasts and postings to off market networking sites to find the perfect home.  Reaching 1000's of agents with the click of a mouse is essential to finding the right property these days.  With Sellers, I create a website, virtual tour, YouTube Links, e-mail blasts, offer market postings before the listing hits the MLS, and even online advertising on top real estate sites around the world!

 

Real Estate & Technology Go Hand-In-Hand

 

My office is a paperless office.  In any given transaction, e-mails, texts, scans, e-signatures are sent and received over and over throughout the process and everyone involved is kept in the loop.  Long gone are the days of sitting at a huge table and signing your name 100 times over.  Clients even receive all of their transaction documents on a flash drive after close of escrow!

 

I have a ton of respect for Agents the sold property in the days before the Internet and E-mail, I don't think I would have lasted!  Haha!  Technology is essential to our business these days, never take it for granted!
