The business of buying and selling houses have gone beyond traditional marketing since the rise of mobile applications, social media, online advertising and email marketing. Now, it seems like new releases are coming everyday.
- Terms like geo-social networking, geo-location and GPS used to sound way too geeky for the average business person. But today, marketers and real estate professionals are aware that this is what fuels many of the best social and mobile applications out there.
- A location-specific industry like real estate may bank on this technology and take advantage of geomarketing by promoting their websites on local directories, location-based apps, target ad placements and social check-ins.
- Can your home buyers do a home search on your website using their smartphones or tablets? If not, you should seriously get your website redesigned to be mobile-compatible.
- Real estate apps are popular and help you access statistics or productivity tools on the go.
- Take the case of Realtor.org, the resource site of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) who have improved significantly over the recent years.
- Agents and brokers who are always away from the desk can have several useful Realtor apps installed on their iPad, iPhone, Android and Windows smart phones.
- The real estate industry has also leveraged specific technologies like electronic document signing, augmented reality, cloud syncing, social apps, file collaboration and advanced mapping technologies.
As the impossible becomes reality in the digital world, things like predictive technologies and algorithmic modeling are now being looked into. Even if they don’t know it, most consumers are now enjoying the applications of these models like optimal routes in the car GPS, hardware optimization and price predictions. Sooner or later, these things will also be picked up by the real estate industry and will be applied to mobile or computer applications that all real estate professionals can take advantage of.
