12 JUL 2019
The digital age is transforming every business, every industry rapidly and Real Estate industry is no exception. Real estate firms are adopting technology more than ever due to informed customers and their increasing dependency on mobile phones.
Having responsive real estate websites are no longer enough to penetrate the market and win new customers. Customers today actively search for information online for making decisions big or small, from buying a house to ordering food or shopping, thus, it is increasingly important for realtors to be in the mobile app space.
PwC’s Emerging Trends in Real Estate report says, “We are getting to the point where, if people don’t recognize technologies are existing and moreover, how to integrate them, opportunities are missed.” This explains the need for adoption of technology trends thus, not losing out to competitors.
Have a look at the below chart depicting customer behavior on their real estate home search:
Above statistics from National Association of REALTORS® Research Group report shows 93% of customers go through real estate website and 73% of customers use real estate apps on mobiles/tablets for searching properties, no doubt the percentage is going to escalate in future.
