Keller Williams Technology Research Analyst, Adi Pavlovic, presented the top five real estate technology trends at Mega Technology in Austin, Texas.
It is now easier than ever to control virtually everything in a home with the simple click of a button or smart phone app. What was once only science fiction has become reality. And consumers want the technology in their homes.
With so many live streaming services available, such as Google+ at no cost, when clients aren’t available for an in-person showing, agents can take them on a live virtual showing using a smart phone or tablet.
Currently, the focus is on providing 3D models for listings. However, the next evolution will be providing these models to clients after they purchase a home so they can visualize home remodeling and furniture purchases.
It’s not about just selling the home, it’s about opening the gates to homeownership. Increase your value as an agent and provide a full home buying or selling experience that lasts beyond the closing. Keller Williams recently announced a partnership with Homekeepr, a home vendor recommendation service agents can provide to clients.
“If you don’t have a mobile presence in some shape or form, you’re behind,” said Pavlovic. The Keller Williams Mobile App is used by more than one million people to help find properties, calculate mortgages and communicate directly with Keller Williams agents.
