As Bob Goldberg, CEO of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), puts it, “The pandemic has confirmed to all of us in the industry that technology will continue to transform real estate.”
New and Existing Technology Are Impacting the Process
In the 2021 Realtor Technology Survey, NAR asks real estate professionals their opinions on the most valuable pieces of technology for their business over the past 12 months. Tools that allow agents to serve clients at a distance and limit exposure to others, including eSignature, lockboxes, and video conferencing, became increasingly important during the last year. Those same tools are just as essential today. Restricting the number of people a seller must interact with during the process is the best way to keep all parties involved in a sale safe.
