See How Agents are Increasing Their Showings Exponentially

By Kai Lin | May 18, 2022

As the world aims to adapt to its post-pandemic position, certain changes will be inevitable across sectors, with a particular focus on real estate. Analysts noted a 40% decline in home showings and listings in April 2020 compared to the previous year's figures. This has ushered in a tide of change as digital innovations are now being rolled out to equip agents with an approach to business that reflects this reality.

As technological advancements and consumer behavior tilt commercial activity towards an increasingly digital sphere, agents must find a way to stay ahead of the curve. A 2021 millenial homebuyer survey by Clever reports that in 2021, a staggering 80% of respondents agreed that they’d consider buying a house sight unseen.

Adapting to The New Normal

The real estate market in the US involves three categories of people—the buyer, seller, and agent. 

Real estate agents are experts in the field—they provide a peculiar insight to prospective home buyers and sellers and eliminate the stress of finding the perfect home through home showings.

The Future of Real Estate Agency

Despite fears that agents will no longer play a role in the real estate market at some point, the fact remains that their work cannot be undermined.

As agents incorporate new strategies to make physical home showings hassle-free—for example, keyless home options and smart locks are now all the rave—agents are not only leveraging an edge to blow competition out of the water but are also harnessing digital technology needed to close more leads.
