Be First… Be Innovative… The Next Step to Differentiation
The Next Step to Differentiation You can never be exceptional by doing the same thing everyone else is doing Zillow recently announced that over 50% of their 32 million monthly searches originated from mobile devices such as Smart phones or tablets (Ipads).
How Technology Changed Real Estate The biggest change technology has caused in the real estate business is the flow of property information. Pre-internet the broker controlled the information and the customer contacted the broker to get information on properties for sale. Brokers tried to release just enough information to get the prospect to call. Today the broker who provides the most and best information in the shortest amount of time usually wins the deal. The Internet is about getting information.
Current Scenario Sunday afternoon at 2:47 p.m. a buyer called on a yard sign that was on a tract of land in an out-of-the-way part of the county. The listing agent was showing other property that afternoon and not wanting to be rude, they didn’t answer the phone. She could have had all the information- maps, etc. and looked at the property while she was in the area, by the time the call was returned by the agent the next morning she was back in the city over an hour away. What are the chances she will get back to that property? Could FYI have saved this transaction?
