Will Real Estate agents go the way of the Dinosaur?

April 28th, 2016 · No Comments · Santa Barbara Real Estate

Brad Stone wrote an article for Bloomberg on how and why real estate agents have survived in the digital age when so many other occupations have been negatively impacted or are now extinct.  Some start ups and digital visionaries would like you to think that you can put on a pair of ” 3D Virtuality Goggles” and experience a home without ever visiting the property. Thereby, eliminating the need for a real estate agent.  I’m sure at some point new technological advances will find their way into the various mix of digitally experiencing a home but it appears the personal touch continues to win out. I wonder why?

This article points out what everyone knows who has ever bought or sold a property. Who knows, someday they might come up with an android whose real estate artificial intelligence is off the charts…? Uh oh!

Here’s the article: Brad Stone Bloomberg Article
