In the XXI century, we can assert that technology in the real estate sector has become a reality and we must add that it is constantly updated so as to make the clients´ lives easier. We live in a digital world and as a result, it is undeniable that the Internet, social networks, mobile phones, mobile applications as well as 3D have revolutionized our way of life and have led to changes in every profession and activity. The real estate sector, which traditionally has not been fond of changes, has also had to adapt to this digital revolution. Can anybody conceive a real estate company which does not have a Web page? Nowadays it is an unquestionable fact that a real estate portal is absolutely indispensable in a company dedicated to buying and selling property or engaging in any other activity. We must point out that these advances have been in force only since the last twenty years. Actually, at the end of the 90´s the Internet, in Spain, was not well known. Who would have thought it! This fact shows us that the digital world becomes assimilated at the same speed as it develops. In the same way as has happened with the use of the Internet, there are at present, digital tools which are essential in the real estate sector.
THE MOBILE PHONE: THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL
Regarding the digital technology, we must state that the major breakthrough was the birth of the Internet. However, coming up next we must mention, without doubt, the increase of mobile phones and their applications. Simple and everyday acts such as booking a table at a restaurant, buying tickets for a show or even renewing your parking ticket are nowadays done with a mobile phone. Start-up companies rely more and more on technology and the same can be said about the real estate sector. Currently, many clients who are looking for a house contact the Web pages of real estate companies by means of their mobile phones. Hence, the first impression they get regarding a house is through their mobile phone. Therefore, we must strongly stress the fact that many property buyers make their first choice by means of their mobile phone, browsing photographs and viewing videos. There are multitudes of applications which are useful for the purchaser and the seller in order to make easier the process of buying or selling property. We have chosen five which we think are very interesting.
Vitrio. Thanks to this application you can view property in 3D. As you have an optimal view of every single detail, the buyer will save a lot of time and have an accurate idea of what the house is like. This app allows the buyer an exploration into virtual reality so as to see the house in full detail.
Magic Plan.: This application helps you to make a plan of the house. You only have to take some pictures of the house and then the app will draw the plan for you, saving you a lot of precious time.
Easy Measure. Do you have to measure the house? Do you want to do it quickly and with pinpoint accuracy? Forget about a tape measure! This app will easily do the task for you.
STValora. Not long ago, we wrote about the factors which increase the value of property. This application calculates the value of a house.
DOCUSign. This application allows you to sign virtually every document and thus, it avoids wasting time in the paperwork. This is very useful if several signatures are required in the documents. In real estate transactions, this app can be of great help.
