Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
According to a recent article from Business Insider, technology has fundamentally changed the ways in which people buy, rent, and sell real estate—and Boston Pads is very much in agreement. Boston Pads is itself a company known for harnessing the power of technology to expedite the real estate sales process; its online database is the leading resource for real estate in the Boston area. The company has issued a new statement to the press, highlighting some of the important technological trends listed in the Business Insider article.
“The last five or six years have brought with them many articles and editorials about how the real estate industry has suffered, burdened by economic crises—but this article tells an alternate story,” the company affirms, in its press statement. “This article tells the true story of how technological innovations have made it easier than ever to buy, sell, and rent real estate. Boston Pads is happy to stand as one example of technology bringing efficiency and ease to the real estate world.”
The first trend addressed in Business Insider is the advent of cloud technology. In particular, cloud technology has made it possible for real estate professionals to access a world of information about local listings—any time and any place—via their smartphones and their tablets. While there were once numerous “gaps” in the information that was easily accessible to realtors, the cloud has largely changed that.
Business Insider also notes that the cloud has made it possible for real estate professionals to collaborate and share data with each other quickly and easily, particularly through enterprise-grade software.
The article goes on to note that, in previous years, another big information “gap” was represented by online search. “Now, the Web listings search is ubiquitous, and consumers are able to access real estate listings more quickly and with more targeted searches than ever before,” the article states. Real estate consumers experience “no shortage of options when it comes to finding homes,” and those options include not only Realtor.com, Zillow, and Trulia, but—for those who live in Massachusetts—Boston Pads, as well.
Perhaps the most important part of real estate’s technological revolution, the article states, is the accessibility that it offers. “Most agents and consumers have access to all of this technology,” the article notes. In fact, if there is any downside to real estate’s increased inclinations toward technology, it is that the sheer volume of choices can be overwhelming.
“That’s a good problem to have,” concludes Boston Pads. “It is proof enough that, as technology improves and advances, the real estate industry will continue to reap the benefits.”
