Tech Tips for Real Estate Agents

Mobile devices help agents connect buyers to their dream homes faster.

By on July 8, 2013

The real estate market is heating up, with prices and sales rising across the country. It’s music to the ears of the one million real estate agents making their living by selling homes.

In a fast-moving market where time is of the essence, wireless technology can help real estate agents close deals quickly, while helping buyers find their dream homes.

For example, the Supra eKey app lets buyers’ agents open lockboxes with their smartphones and transmits real-time “showing” information to listing agents and homeowners, while DocuSign allows agents, buyers and sellers to sign, send and save sales contracts on the go. It significantly speeds up the back-and-forth process of multi-page offers, counter-offers, disclosures and other documents that can bog down the deal.

Tablet use is a growing trend for real estate businesses. Tablets equipped with 4G LTE act as portable tools to review documents and display numerous listings to a homebuyer whether in the office or at a showing, highlighting 360° virtual tours and other rich multimedia content.

Additionally, while smartphones and tablets have high-quality, convenient cameras, the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Camera captures high-resolution professional-level images of spaces. Agents can upload these photos and videos to create compelling listings and attractive offers, helping to get properties under contract sooner.

Real estate agents are constantly on the go, and wireless technology can help them boost their business and provide better service to their customers.
