Are you guilty of rejecting real estate technology for these reasons?

Regardless of the industry, technology is helping mold and reshape many sectors for the future. Mobile technology has, in particular, been evolving within the real estate industry and carving many paths for real estate professionals. And while mobile technology has gained the respect and merit it deserves, some professionals are still slightly reluctant to take advantage.

But why?

  1. They think it will replace them

While mobile technology is supposed to assist real estate professional and help make doing the job easier, some worry with too much reliance on it, it’ll replace agents.  According Inman, “It’s not the only obvious factor that tech often misses. Human allegiance is probably the single greatest reason that businesses who seek to minimize the labor in real estate transactions fail.” In a nutshell, technology will never replace humans’ ability to interact with one another.

  1. It may slow them down

Real estate can be a fast-paced industry. The market can change at the drop of a hat, and agents need technology that’s going to aid in that. However, if you’re a real estate agent who is unfamiliar with certain mobile technologies you might be reluctant to give them a try for fear that it’ll slow you down. Fortunately, there are several tutorials online that can help you learn how to operate mobile technology and incorporate it into your business. And, as they say, practice makes perfect.

  1. It’s too complicated

New technology is usually complicated and complex. With the multiple things mobile technology can do, it’s a wonder how any figured it out. Luckily though, the internet makes information easily accessible, so having to learn technology is a snap. According to Inman, “Knowledgeable agents and brokers know smartphones are the most expeditious response mechanism in today’s marketplace, and according to the 2017 Realtor Mobile Usage Report, 87 percent of Realtors agree that clients prefer to receive new housing alerts, market activity reports and more sent directly to their mobile device.”
