In Wall Street Journal's article, "The Battle for the Big Deal," Lauren Schucker writes about the increasing need for brokers and agents to embrace technological developments in real estate. "Brokers and agencies are tapping into technology, building extensive databases with detailed information about the habits and social circles of homeowners who might be prospective buyers and sellers," Lauren explains. She points out the use of algorithms and unique data models– "predicting how long people are staying in their homes," and when they are most likely to sell. At SmartZip, we understand this first hand and believe technology, driven by data insights, is the future of precision marketing in real estate.
As the conversation around big data and analytics becomes more prevalent, information-hungry professionals are looking for targeted solutions to improve their marketing ROI, and brokers and agents are embracing this trend.
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has focused more attention on the data analytics space as they recently launched an initiative with a specified group for predictive analytics. Their director, former Trulia executive Todd Carpenter, called predictive analytics "something kind of new to the industry," in a recent article- "NAR to tackle 'big data' with predictive analytics group," by Inman News.
