The Future of Real Estate: What Industry Professionals Are Saying Now

A Group of Leander Real Estate Investors Talking in Front of a City SkylineThe future of the real estate industry is always a popular discussion. Market fluctuations can make or ruin an investor’s rental property portfolio. That’s why it’s crucial to keep up with what real estate experts have to say about the future of the industry. This article explores various expert opinions regarding the future of real estate. We’ll also look at how Leander property managers and investors might profit from these trends.

What the experts are saying

CEO of FortuneBuilder and a real estate investor, Than Merrill, observes the effect of technology on the real estate sector. According to Merrill, “the emergence and growing popularity of cryptocurrency and blockchain will greatly impact transaction times” for real estate purchasers. He also expects that these technologies would allow buyers and sellers of real estate to work faster than ever before.

Other industry experts believe that technology will disrupt many more real estate investing practices. In the near future, according to Dominique Burgauer, CEO of Archilogic, “almost every stage of a building’s lifecycle will be managed online. From construction and furnishing to sales and maintenance, the real estate industry will be online.” Burgauer says that as more Millennials become homebuyers, they will not “tolerate the industry as it is today.” The demand for online services will only expand in the next years, forcing property investors, landlords, and other market participants to go online.

Alternatively, Adena Hefets, co-founder and chief executive officer of Divvy Homes, says that innovation has already pushed real estate investing in new and interesting areas, and that this trend will continue. This innovation, according to Hefets, “will continue to dramatically improve the customer experience – as more real estate companies will apply the immense data they have collected from being in the market to their platforms. This data application will help us better understand the market, helping home buyers negotiate, obtain a mortgage, deal with title issues and escrow, and efficiently remove many headaches that previously plagued the home buying experience.”
