With the real estate industry becoming more competitive, agents have to act fast to be able to gain clients and potentially sell, sell, sell. Here a few ways technology has improved the real estate as a whole.
Advertising: From newspaper and billboards to the infamous bus-stop bench and magazines, real estate agents have come a long way in terms of marketing themselves. Compared with back then, being in the real estate industry has changed from almost an accounting standpoint to now marketing.
Mobility: With the innovative technology, agents can definitely get listings out to the public quicker and now that most websites are compatible with smartphone and tablet formats, buyers respond to listings quicker than ever before.
