Realtors, Technology and Social Media

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Real Living GreatWest

 

Realtors know that it is quite a tough world out there. Selling something is quite a tough job, and as such, to sell a property or a home to a client one of the most difficult transactions to pull off. However, there is a shimmer of light for real estate agents and buyers and sellers as the market is slowly picking up and surely, but slowly, making its way to the peak. Investors are pouring in to buy shares and reaching out to grab the properties being put up for sale. If you are still waiting for the right time to make property purchases, it will be late for you to cash in if you wait much longer.

Real Estate technology has made its way up to the market, boosting the sales by well over 30%. This technology helps a buyer or seller to make real estate transactions right from their homes. Several real estate websites that offer pictures and video clippings of their listings have good search engine rankings, since these graphics are search engine optimization tools. Thus, a larger volume of traffic often comes across such sites.  Additionally, real estate blogs offer information to the visitors to the site, and buyers and sellers can avail real estate information from realtors and agents just by posting comments in the blog.

Another important feature available to market and convert into sales is the social media. Social media in real estate has taken a leap since now everyone is connecting through Facebook, Twitter, Orkut, etc. The trend is fast improving with global village concepts and real estate agents maintain contact with their customers through these sites, and often offer other members free advice. Using social media in real estate can really enhance realtors’ chances of getting clients and get sales done. It also benefits the buyers and sellers as they can learn about listings from the social media sites, as well as avail free advice. Using social media in real estate acts as a forum between the buyers, the sellers and the realtors, and everyone who participates in these interactions benefit from it.

When looking for realtors, choose one who makes the most of the real estate technology and is active in using social media in real estate, as they are the ones who can get you the best deal. When agents are up-to-date with technology, they learn about better listings sooner, and can sell properties a lot faster.
