CES 2014. Wish I had been there. The future of technology was very evident according to all reports. TVs, wearable tech and automotive design were mind boggling. The CES 2014 event was not a disappointment.
I’ve included a link at the bottom of this blog to a review of the event that I hope you will find as insightful as I did. It certainly got me thinking about how best to apply technology to real estate. I have so many ideas running through my mind it’s almost overwhelming.
I’d love to hear your comments and thoughts about the things you feel would make searching, viewing, researching real estate not only easier, but beneficial for you. What would make the experience of looking for a new home, loft, condo more fun! What is important to you when searching for that perfect dream home? What special effects or tools would enhance the experience?
Think about, for a minute, how you would use all the various smart devices that just about every household now employs today. We find that today’s home buyer/renter is much more computer savvy. Most properties really aren’t drive by homes. By that I mean that buyers don’t spend their time on Saturday/Sunday driving around neighborhoods. They go to the internet. Once they find that property they want to experience it online. Only then do they want to view the home in person.
You may think the number of clients we see taking this approach is small, but quite the contrary. Most clients have done their homework, know the areas, buildings, neighborhoods, shopping, etc., before they ever make an appointment. With that in mind what would make that experience even easier and more effective for you?
I’m looking forward to hearing your comments. I know you all have them. I’ll pair them with my ideas and do a future post about the topic.
In the meantime here is the link to a review of CES 2014.
