Ulster County Real Estate, Tech Savvy Agent & the Mobile Revolution
It's no secret, the real estate market is not what it used to be. Many agents today are struggling and transactions are not as easy to close as in years past. Ulster County NY homes for sale are very popular to buyers shopping in the Hudson Valley. Today's home buyer wants listing information to be easily accessible and they want that information as quickly as possible!
It is at this crucial point, when it becomes quite clear what agents need to do in order to stand out from their competition and be able to serve clients' needs in the most reliable and professional way. In this local Ulster County real estate update we will share some of the best practices Taft Street Realty currently uses to streamline the home selling process.
During the current mobile real estate revolution, buyers and sellers today are looking for a local, social, & mobile Ulster County real estate agent. One who can help them navigate each critical phase of the transaction process. Below are some of the tech tools we use daily to serve our customers they way they expect (and maybe help ourselves out in the process!)
1. DocuSign - Has certainly made my life easier! I always made a point of meeting a client wherever was most convenient for them in order to sign paperwork. I was happy to do it but it made for alot of running around on my part. Docusign takes out the travel time. Plus the added bonus of instantly having a saved digital copy of an important document is ideal!
2. Skype - Helps me expand my real estate office, across the globe if need be! If I'm at a convention in AZ, I can maintain real-time contact with Taft Street's main office in NY without tying myself up on a phone. Chatting or "skyping" also documents and saves all of my conversations with staff and vendors to refer back to later.
3. iPhone - The glorious device that ties it all together for me! My iPhone is my phone, computer & camera all in one! Since I'm always in my car or on the go anyway, I find myself conducting at least half of my business through my iPhone. Whether it's an app like Skype or snapping a photo of a listing to instantly send to my client, my iPhone is easily my most important piece of technology right now.
Honorable Mentions - Online file storage, social media, internet phone lines, the list goes on and on! No matter what the new technology is, Taft Street Realty embraces it, masters it, and uses it to help our clients (and ourselves!)
