ICNY: Tech has disrupted the real estate industry. What now?

Inman Connect New York is where you need to be to put your real estate business on the fast track. Over just a few days, you can form strategic partnerships, develop lucrative referrals and gain insights into how new technologies are transforming the industry.

You may have heard the term “proptech,” a mashup of the words property and technology. It represents a trend in the real estate space that, quite frankly, has lagged behind other industries. Real estate tech is disrupting the real estate industry as a whole. And it’s not going away.

Real estate has integrated tech tools that benefit buyers, sellers, agents and brokerages. Everywhere you look, tech has enabled clients to do more with their properties. Buyers are looking online to find properties to buy, even conducting online 3D tours before contacting an agent.  How can you, as an agent, benefit from knowing this about your buyer? That’s just one of the questions answered at Inman Connect New York in April.

Agents have benefited from tons of tech, as well, including conversational AI texting, blockchain, fractional property investment and mobile apps. Make no mistake, if you’re not familiar with all of these tech platforms, you may be behind the curve. Agents and brokerages who embrace tech early often have a leg up over competitors who ignore where the industry is headed.

At Inman Connect New York in April, you’ll have access to world-class tech experts who will explain what the different applications are, how they work, and how you can use today’s tech tools to build your business. Proptech, also known as RETech or CRETech, can provide a plethora of benefits to single agents, teams and brokers. Knowing these platforms exist, what they do and how you can use them for your business are all sessions available at ICNY.

Tech has disrupted the real estate industry, but it can be your best ally in creating a seamless transaction, working through your marketing plan, building your team, organizing your prospecting, showing homes and managing your list, among other things. There are so many ways to use the current tech and it’s only growing in its ease of use and creativity.
