Adding new technology is an important part of continued success in real estate. While traditional methods, such as placing a classified ad, putting signs in the yard, and other methods are still effective, technology is changing the way people look for homes. The millennial generation (over 50% of them) use their smartphones and the internet to search for homes.
Drones are becoming very important for real estate personnel. The sale of drones for commercial use is set to reach 2.5 million drones sold in 2017. This is a 300 percent increase from the previous year. The Real Estate industry is set to see an increase in the use of drones for business purposes. Real estate agents are said to make up 22 percent of all commercial drone use by 2020.
