Technology is a huge part of the world around us and real estate is no exception. We have been researching the use of technology in real estate investing for some time now and are attempting to create a resource page for your use and reference. Today as we open the subject, I’m going to share with you how we have tentatively outlined the subject, listed programs, websites, and apps to check out, and how we are going to open this up for YOU to contribute to the listings. This will likely become an ongoing feature of the show. We certainly won’t cover everything today or even next time, but we know it’s an important part of investing so we are going to make it a regular topic.

Topic: RE Tech

The Purpose of Technology

It’s not a replacement.

  1. Doesn’t replace understanding 
    1. what a deal is.
    2. The process of getting a deal done
  2. Doesn’t create common sense - comps.
  3. Doesn’t replace the need to build relationships.
  4. Won’t go see properties for you, although we are getting closer on that all the time.
  5. It may suggest a solution, but it won’t make a decision (and we don’t want it to).

It’s a Tool

  1. Automate procedures
  2. Speed up processes
  3. Analyze big data sets
  4. Saves time (maybe - sometimes the setup and error correction take longer than it would have to do it manually in the first place. HOWEVER - once it’s done, the same process can be repeated much faster in the future.)
