It’s always fun to try and peer into the future to predict what will happen, especially when it comes to technology. The speed in which some of these advances are made, however, can make it hard to keep up, so it’s better to try and determine what affects you and your business and pay attention to those technologies first. We took a look into our crystal ball for the year to see what we think will be the top 5 real estate technology trends of 2019. Here they are:
Home search and reviews will be more critical than ever.
We already know that the internet is used by prospective clients for both home searches and to learn more about real estate agents. We think that trend will continue into this year, with major company and third-party websites still bringing in the traffic for home searches (along with the relevant home search apps, of course). Testimonials will be more important than ever, however, as people try and decide on who they want to trust with their real estate transaction. It’s one of the reasons we use RealSatisfied here at CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty; its ease of use ensures clients will submit a review and it allows for easy sharing across multiple channels by an agent.
