What’s new in real estate tech

What’s new in real estate tech

Agents and property managers (PM) alike are adopting all kinds of new technologies to get the edge over their competitors and streamline the way real estate is bought and leased in Australia.

New technologies are freeing up agents and PM from a lot of repetitive paperwork and less than exciting admin work, allowing them to focus on more important tasks like prospecting and face-to-face relationship building.

Here are some of the latest emerging tech advancements that may be worth investing in and exploring in the real estate industry of the not too distant future.

Virtual reality inspections

The next logical step in advancement from 2D listing video tours is immersive 3D virtual reality (VR) property tours. Thanks to amazing VR technology like Scann3d’s Matterport camera which can scan a house in 3D and convert it into a VR tour within an hour, homebuyers and renters can get a feel for the size and layout of a home without having to attend a physical inspection.

Think of the potential benefits VR tours can offer clients. VR would give buyers greater reassurance when buying off-the-plan property and give overseas and interstate buyers and renters the chance to ‘walk around’ a home when they can’t make it to the physical inspections. Consumers only need a smartphone, a VR headset and they’re free to tour the space at their leisure as many times as they want.

Virtual staging

Most agents and PM are probably savvy to the struggles of drumming up interest for dull, unfurnished properties. Rather than hiring a costly home stager to bring in furniture or if you don’t have time to stage the home before listing photography is due, professional photographers can now dress vacant homes with virtual furniture to make the home more appealing in marketing materials.

The photographer shoots the property as usual and then cleverly uses 3D images of furniture to stage the home. They can even add reflections and shadows from furniture for heightened authenticity.

Adding furniture to a vacant home will heighten its appeal to buyers and renters in advertisements by showing them the scale and functionality of each room. It can also be beneficial to have a home virtually staged to draw in interest if a property has run down or out of date furniture that detracts from the home and may put off some buyers.

Online rental applications

The technology saving PM loads of time and headaches are free online rental application forms (such as tApp and 1form). Online application platforms like these streamline the process of finding suitable tenants by allowing you to compare applicant details side by side and notify successful/unsuccessful applicants in bulk.

Gone are the days of trawling through piles of paper rental applications on your desk and manually entering the details of every successful tenant into your property management system. These handy platforms allow you to import new tenants’ details straight into your property management software and you’re good to go.

Digital signboards

Show your clients and passers-by that you’re at the forefront of real estate technology by installing an HD digital signboard. Ideal for premium listings, busy foot traffic areas and slow car speed zones, you can deliver all the information buyers need about your listing in an eye-catching visual and audio display.

Best of all you can update your property sign remotely (i.e. auction date, upcoming inspection times and sale outcomes), they’re weather and vandal proof, and surprisingly they come at only a slightly higher price than a regular static sale board.

Drone videos

It’s becoming increasingly popular for agents to showcase the best aspects of their listings via drone shot video and photography. Not only is drone captured imagery very cool, it can be used to immediately show buyers where the home sits on the block, unique property features (i.e. swimming pool, tennis court, garden etc.), the size of the land, proximity to neighbours and neighbourhood amenities.

Before booking in a licensed drone operator check out samples of their work, make sure there are no visual obstructions directly over the property that would prevent good footage and ensure you’re clear on what you want to capture from aerial shots of the property and its surrounds that can’t be achieved with standard photography.

Live streamed auctions

Many agents are increasing their auction audiences and getting more bidders by live streaming their auctions online. This gives curious, shy and international buyers the ability to tune in and bid from anywhere in the world.

For example, Ray White have been running professionally produced live auction streams since 2014, which allow for live online bidding through a PC or iPhone using the AuctionEar app. According to the Australian Financial Review Ray White have streamed over 700 auctions online where 17,000 buyers have bid from all over the world, for properties ranging from $265,000 to $5.45 million.

Inspection apps

Put away your clipboards, pens and paper this weekend, and let free open for inspection apps (like Open House ID and RealtyMate) streamline the whole process for you. With these apps you can enter or scan in visitors details (bonus: it will auto fill people you’ve met before), export visitor details in a CSV file, SMS or email visitors and vendors post inspection updates and sync new clients with your CRM.

Think of the time you’ll save from not having to laboriously take down contact details, freeing up more opportunity for engaging and useful conversations to qualify potential buyers at inspections.

Early adopters of these kinds of technologies will reap the rewards in not only the time they save, but through the new business they'll attract from being ahead of the curve in new real estate tech.

The top 5 home features buyers value most

The top 5 home features buyers value most

New research from Finder.com.au has revealed the top five features Australian homebuyers value most. These findings can help us more easily identify which features to showcase in property ads and promote at inspections.

We Australians may love our sunburnt country, our droughts and flooding rains, but we definitely love it a little bit less when it’s a 40 degree day. In a nation with weather as volatile and unpredictable as ours, it should come as no surprise that Aussie home buyers are willing to spend a little more on their homes to make sure they can live comfortably through the more difficult seasons.

Interestingly, the general population seems to have the same idea, as new research shows that a majority of Australian adults (65 per cent) are willing to fork out a bit of extra cash on a house, to ensure that they can sleep soundly in the peak heat of summer in the comfort of air conditioning.

Finder.com.au's study of 1,043 Australians found out the top features buyers look for in homes. At the bottom of the list came garden gnomes and water features, with only two per cent of adults interested in these, followed closely by a built-in BBQ at four per cent. 

The top 5 features Australians value most in their home are:

1. Air conditioning (65%)

2. A carport (60%)

3. Garden (52%)

4. Solar panels (33%)

5. Deck or pergola (24%)

For sale:  Maleny, QLD

For sale: Maleny, QLD

Interestingly, there were gender and even state differences within the results. Overall, South Australians considered air conditioning (80 per cent), to be more important than any other state and 15 per cent more than the nationwide average, 50 per cent of Northern Territory respondents prefer to pay that little bit extra for a swimming pool.

While solar-panels were the fourth most sought after item for both men and women, generationally nearly 40 per cent of Baby Boomers (aged 55-74) preferred them as a top feature. Despite the fact that female buyers were more interested in backyards than men were (55 per cent as opposed to 48 per cent), Aussie men still lived up to their man-cave stereotypes, preferring a garage more than women did (62 per cent compared to 58 per cent).

Why these results?

Well, the air conditioning really isn’t much of a surprise. But the solar panels? Australian Electricity Market Operator has found that average electricity prices have gone up from $38.89 in 2014-2015 to $61.25 from 2015-2016, an increase of almost $22.36, so it's not difficult to see why Aussie home buyers are eager to find ways to cut electricity costs.

Takeaways

We now know that most home buyers are likely to be looking for qualities, such as air conditioning and solar panels, that will keep them comfortable but also save them money down the track.

For rental properties and houses up for sale perhaps highlighting some of these in demand features will help to secure tenants faster and make sales sooner.

8 Brisbane hotspots to recommend to investors

8 Brisbane hotspots to recommend to investors

If you have clients seeking out a more affordable investment opportunity, now is a really good time to buy in Brisbane. News.com.au recently reported that 'Brisbane's average house prices have climbed again for its 14th quarter in a row'.

Real Estate Institute of Queensland chief executive Antonia Mercorella gave a timely reminder of why investors should find Brisbane extremely attractive saying, 'there's a level a fear when buying and selling in Sydney and Melbourne, fear that is just not there is Brisbane'.

PRDnationwide Research Manager Dr Diaswati Mardiasmo agrees saying 'Brisbane housing prices didn’t experience the same extreme growth as Sydney and Melbourne did, and so it won’t see the crashes that many are predicting for those markets'. 

brisbane river

When it comes to affordability in comparison to Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane is way out in front. 'Brisbane had a really strong year in 2015, with the average median house price growth sitting at 4.4 per cent. In 2016 I think we will continue to see growth', says Dr Diaswati Mardiasmo. 

With this kind of steady growth and huge developmental projects in the works, it's understandable why many savvy investors are increasingly seeing the current and potential value of Brisbane property.

Recent analysis by PRDnationwide data highlighted the following eight Brisbane suburbs as the ones to watch in 2016. These hotspots were chosen over others based on their recent growth, popularity on search engines, development spend, investment rates, vacancy rates and rental yields.

Feature agent: 5 minutes with Ben Munro Smith

Feature agent: 5 minutes with Ben Munro Smith

This week we had a quick chat with Ben Munro Smith from Belle Property Balmain to get some insights into Sydney's property market, advice on what it takes to be a successful real estate agent and the best spots in Balmain worth stopping for a bite.

What kinds of trends are you seeing in the property market in Sydney’s Inner West at the moment?

People are looking further afield than we have previously seen. More and more people are choosing key lifestyle suburbs and then beginning the search for the perfect house. As an agent, this is fantastic because it means we get to work with people from all over Sydney. The Balmain Peninsula has so much appeal to Sydneysiders, we make most people’s lists!

What do you find most challenging about your job?

One of the biggest challenges about working in real estate and certainly one of the things that makes me love it, is that you always need to be ‘on’. It doesn’t matter how many opens you’ve had that day or how many properties you’ve sold that year – it is absolutely imperative to make sure you are representing yourself and your clients in the best possible way.

I’ll never forget what my grandfather told me when I got my first job, you need to treat each customer as if it was your first for the day. I’ve tried to take that attitude with me to every job I’ve had since.

In what ways do you leverage social media for marketing and lead generation?

Social media is a great opportunity to engage with the local community. For me, this platform isn’t all about selling, it’s about being part of the community, supporting local businesses and connecting with people. 

It has also been great for introducing me to clients which I may not have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. I think where social media helps an agent stand out is that it shows the personality behind the agent. Real estate is a people game. A brand might get you through a door but ultimately a client will decide to go with you (or not!) based on you as a person. Social media helps the community get to know you and in return helps you to understand them.

One of the other great parts of being active on social media is that it gives you real time feedback from your clients. I have asked for feedback on new marketing ideas on social media and had some great responses. I’ve then been able to use this information for client sales campaigns. This year I signed up my first vendor from social media and I’ve had special 'follower' property previews which have helped to provide my client (the vendor) with real market feedback on price and the property itself.  

Do you have any specific strategies or tactics you use to most effectively manage your time and follow ups?

Time management, like in any job, is something you really need to remain in control of. Being organised and having a systemised approach to each day is so important. For me, that means everything goes into my diary and at the end of each day I put together a plan of what I’m going to achieve for the following day. Keeping on top of this means I can see where I have space if something comes up and it also allows me to track my day to ensure I achieve everything I set out to. It might sound a little extreme, but it certainly works. The saying goes, fail to plan and you plan to fail, and there is some real truth in that. 

What do you find most appealing and useful about homely.com.au?

Homely is a great resource for agents, buyers and the community. It gives something back to all these groups which really makes it stand out against the competition. Personally I love reading their blog for tips and industry articles. These are great to share with my clients and database.

One of my favourite features is the Q&A section. It’s great being able to answer questions and share information about my local area as well as having a platform to ask the community for some advice. 

As an agent it is great to have a free platform to showcase my client’s homes for sale, especially one that is easy for buyers to use. For my business, having the ability to display listings on such a beautiful platform really helps me to stand out from other agents.

Do you have a go-to restaurant or café in Balmain?

We really are spoiled for choice in Balmain when it comes to food. All of the local café and restaurant owners are so passionate about their offering, it is tough to choose just one!

I go past Little Ethel’s most mornings on my way to work and Jamie the owner makes a mean cup of coffee, so they see a lot of me. Tom at The Lodge, just opposite my office, hosts a great spot for a drink at the end of the week and Kim from Wilhelmina’s Bar organises an amazing monthly seasonal dinner which I love to attend. I could really go on and on, there are so many great options!

Family-friendly suburbs to recommend to clients

When advising clients where to relocate after selling their property we know that different types of buyers have different needs and criteria to fulfil when looking for a new home.
