I should hope by now every real estate agent is using some sort of technology in their career.
I use a variety of tech tools to help me with reaching my real estate goals. I really enjoy learning new technology and can't wait to see the new stuff! I feel bad for the clients of a real estate agent that refuses to embrace new technology that can put his/her clients at the frontlines of what is happening in their market. Technology doesn't have to be scary!
If a house lists at a great price, I want to be able to find out about it right away so that I can see if it meets the needs of any of my clients. I almost considered a career in electronics, but realized real estate was the best way I could reach more people and offer advice. The tools I have found most helpful are split into three categories below.
- Laptop and programs
- Mobile Phone and apps
To find out more about specifically what I use in these categories - please check out my more in depth blog at my website.
I also try to keep my listings syndicated to a plethora of websites for maxium exposure. I have heard that 90% of all home buyers have found their house online before ever setting up a showing. My listing package is very "technology packed", and I am surprised more real estate agents have not followed suit!
