10/11/2010 Naples, FL – "Technology consulting firm Gartner predicts that QR (Quick Response) Code use will explode soon in the United States." says Mark Martin, VIP Realty Group. "We now have QR Codes for all of our listings that allow consumers to scan them with their smart phones and see detailed property information for the listing such as the walk score, Google Maps with street views, school information and much more right from the Yard Sign, Property Flyers, Postcards and other places where it was never possible before."
Similar to bar codes, QR codes allow people standing in front of a home to use a QR Reader on their smartphone to scan a QR code on the yard sign in seconds and access detailed information about the home they are standing in front of. “We are using technology from Listings-to-Leads that automatically creates QR Codes for all of our listings allowing us to then put them on the yard signs in front of the seller's home along with all our other printed marketing materials. This greatly increases the exposure of the property while at the same time giving the consumers the information they want quickly and easily.” says Mark Martin.
“We are excited to partner with VIP Realty Group in using the newest technologies in the market on behalf of their sellers and buyers.” Scott Pierce, CEO, Listings-to-Leads added. "QR Codes are big in Japan and are used widely in Asia, Europe and Australia and are now starting to catch on in America." “The Real Estate industry is one of the most technology intensive industries. We are proud to have been able to offer a powerful turnkey solution that allows VIP Realty Group to leverage this technology without wasting a lot of their time which is better spent working with buyers and sellers and not acting as their own IT department" continued Scott Pierce.
“Our main goal as real estate professionals is to market our seller's properties to as many people as possible and to give buyers access to that information in as many ways as possible." concludes Mark Martin "Using QR Codes allows us to achieve both of these goals while reducing the time needed to achieve this. As one of the first brokerages in our area to use this new technology we are also excited to share our expertise with buyers and sellers in our area along with other Realtors that may not have implemented this technology yet."
