Jacob Frydman On How Mobile Platforms Impact New York Real Estate
A finesse for handling markets and analyzing multiple trends remains a requirement for investing in the Big Apple. In recent times, with the advent of new and shifting technology, many aspects of the industry have changed allowing for diverse means of dealing with real estate complexities. Jacob Frydman discusses the ways that mobile platforms are effecting how properties are assessed, bought, and sold in New York City.
The currently immediate availability of data, services, and information, on-hand 24 hours a day through the rampant advancements of smart phones, has created a requirement of instant gratification. The way people are doing business, even substantial transactions, is changing rapidly. StreetEasy was one of the first apps offered that brought the advantages of a multiple listing services to an area that formerly did not have access. With an agent advertising program and other built-in options, this application begins to show how technology can enhance the industry. Offering a newly accessible level of transparency, buyers and sellers now have an on-going trusted connection to all aspects of the process. The market is being transformed by mobile platforms that provide better methods for consumers and agents to move quickly and stay connected. There is also a shift into a more community or team mentality to direct people to the homes and amenities they need, in a fast and structured way. Rather than competing amongst each other, everyone involved is appropriately matched to meet their exact specifications.
Jacob Frydman encourages professional oversight, and values the improvements modern innovations allow. He notes that, another interesting app affecting the city’s real estate market is Compass, a real estate listing app that combines technology with the human touch of their highly skilled professionals. This user driven program seeks to benefit both buyers and sellers as well as the agencies representing them. Verified listings, precise property value information, and market trends are only some of the existing options and centralized to a specific neighborhood or area. The system is designed to give a more holistic perspective of a potential asset purchase. Simplifying the real estate transaction so as to expedite the process for everyone involved is a natural progression of technology available.
