How Will the Role of Real Estate Agents Change in 20 Years?

Article | March 9, 2020

Real estate is changing. Between iBuyers, new technologies, and the instant gratification economy, the traditional real estate industry of slow-moving mechanics and inefficiencies isn’t going to survive unless something changes, and fast. We’re already seeing companies like Carvana removing the necessity for someone to go to a salesman or car dealership to purchase a vehicle. So, why couldn’t Zillow or another major player do this with real estate?

A clean, well-managed CRM can be your most valuable real estate tool. Too often, however, the database is so neglected and disorganized that it’s not living up to its full potential. Management of the system is an ongoing task, requiring a significant amount of an agent’s time. In fact, the folks at Hubspot found that nearly 30 percent of salespeople spent in excess of an hour a day on data entry. That’s an hour much better spent taking a former client to lunch or prospecting for new clients. When it comes to outsourcing real estate tasks, how does one go about finding help with data entry? Hiring a virtual assistant with CRM experience is probably the easiest way to get started. Here are just a few tasks to hand off:

Article | March 16, 2020

The long-term effects of the coronavirus on the economy remain unknown, but we can predict some acute short-term effects on the commercial real estate market in general, and in particular on contractual relationships in this arena. There are many different implications of the force majeure concept described above for the commercial real estate world, but here we will describe just a few of them. The coronavirus outbreak has already had an impact on the supply chain for various materials required for construction. Similarly, government restrictions, such as curfews or lockdowns, could interfere with the ability of contractors to have the labor needed for construction, and there may also be delays in the issuance of construction approvals and permits.
