Realtors and Technology
Realtors usually try to spend as little as possible in technology. Agents (27%) and brokers (21%) spend between $501 and $2,000 on technology a year. That’s not a lot. Many times, it results in information scattered across hundreds of spreadsheets, printed files, and other management software.
But maybe you’re tired of those spreadsheets and printed PDF files running your business. So, you decided to give property software a try. Or a few tries, until you realized it’s not worth it.
You probably changed systems a few times and never got the expected results. You found systems that have amazing features but are too expensive. And a few are cheap but don’t do everything you need. None of them seem to be the best fit for your business. They’re not easy to use or they’re outdated.
One specific area where this is a common occurrence is the real estate industry. Property software has been struggling to innovate. While CRM systems, for example, are always being optimized, software for property is not.
What are the Challenges Realtors Face with Technology?
The main reason for property software being inadequate, is providers don’t have incentives to innovate. They can still keep clients with their tools and services without coming up with new features. And clients often fail to recognize what technology can do for them.
They have a hard time keeping up with changes in technology too. 48% of firms admit it’s one of their biggest challenges.
About 45% of brokers in firms said they want the companies to expand their technology offers. The top three offerings they’d like to see are:
- Easy to use technology
- Reliable faster internet
- A better CRM database
Their number one need is easy to use technology. Unfortunately, due to the lack of innovation, this is surprisingly hard to find.
Realtors want new and better technology. They use mobile phones and computers every day. Yet, software tools aren’t up to the expectations.
The good news is that there are products that do deliver. Odoo is one of them, catering for many industries.
