The need for real estate agents has been getting diminished gradually but this process is much accelerated if we try to analyze current real estate scenario. So, is there any way real estate agents can save themselves from this extinction? Let’s find out.
At the time when there was no internet, real estate agents were the only beings who could take investors, buyers and sellers on a tour to the real estate domain they would be responsible for. The access to the listings they had was exclusive. Things weren’t this much transparent to the customers of those agents. Now, everything is changed and the reason is the evolution of technology.
Buyers now need to wait for a few seconds to view the listings and contact the sellers. To help them more, there are the analytics available that can let them know about the complex market situation in easy way.
In other words, if there had been the reasons for contacting real estate agents, most of them are going to be vanished, leaving the real estate agents to look for something else to do for living.
Sad but true, technology is seemingly depriving real estate agents from every opportunity that can help them earn like old days. In this situation, the only way left for the real estate agents is to look for the options that can add value to their services.
Unfortunately, there is no legal battle that real estate agents can fight to protect their grounds against the creation of tools that help buyers and sellers.
The unique value
Unique value is what real estate agents can provide to make their service valuable for the customers. There is concept. If you can’t defeat a force, you can join it and later you can ride it. Having that said, the real estate agents can enhance their circle and effectiveness using online media to get something which potential buyers and sellers can’t. While the buyers and sellers can use the tools which are already available, they wouldn’t be able to access the type of services that real estate agents would be able to provide. Although the agents would have to offer services in competitive prices but they will still be able to enhance their income since internet provides faster connection and quicker results to all of the queries.
With that said, real estate agents need to have advance knowledge about how to use technology. Although the tools like Real Estate Virtual Tours make the job pretty much easier for a real estate agent even if he/she is a layman, advance knowledge about things will help the users to have some knowhow about accounting, knowing about which can ultimately help real estate agents to analyze real estate trends and predict the next big things happening based on numbers.
