12 Startups that are Changing the way we Interact with Real Estate

Imagine conducting entire mortgage transaction online without the aid of a loan officer.

Are you ready for a glimpse into the future of real estate? Real Estate Connect’s “New Kids on the Block” session and an eye-opening Agent Reboot session called “9 technologies that will change the real estate landscape forever” provided a preview of coming attractions that may dramatically change the real estate industry.

James Dwiggins, CEO of Nexthome and the moderator for Agent Reboot, outlined a series of game-changing technologies that are already making their presence felt in the real estate industry.

Search with the wave of a finger
Your mouse, computer track pad and remote controls are about to become obsolete. Leap Motion has already released an app that allows you to control your screen with just a wave of your finger.

Fin is “a trendy gadget you can wear on the thumb and make your whole palm a digital touch interface.” Rather than having some smart chip implanted in your body, you will soon be able to preview property videos, share files, change TV stations, control visuals from head-mounted devices, or do a host of other real estate-related activities using nothing more than Fin, your thumb and the palm of your hand.

Eye Tribe
Imagine simply moving your eyes to flip to the next page of a book or to discover property prices as you are driving through a neighborhood. Eye tracking is making that dream a reality. This technology can tell when and where someone is looking. Eye tracking will also make both gaming and real estate search more immersive and intuitive.

Matterport 3D Camera
Matterport bills itself as “bringing 3-D capture to mobile.” The Matterport 3D camera takes 360-degree photos of each room in the house. The app then generates a 3-D immersive experience where you can “walk through” the property creating the closest thing to being there in person. It also accurately estimates room sizes and measurements, as well as generating a floor plan. Moreover, your clients can redesign the space to fit their lifestyles. Look for videographers and/or virtual tour companies to make the $4,500 investment for the camera. For luxury properties, this service will be a “must have.”
