Home Buying Is Becoming Increasingly Digital


I’ve spoken in the past about how eCommerce is the future of real-estate transactions. In fact, many of the new initiatives that BAM is currently working on are helping to make choosing a home and lot online even easier by integrating real time builder site plans and sales systems into the online experience. The goal is to eventually facilitate an entirely online sale – and that goal looks as though it will come to fruition sooner than later. I gave some great examples of online home buying in an article last year.

In the meantime, there is a cool new tool that is taking some of the manual paperwork out of the purchasing timeline for homebuyers. It’s called DealTap, and it’s making the entire process of buying a home digital through the use of a cutting edge application that runs on smart devices. The tool allows realtors – in real-time – to quickly deploy/amend offers, grab signatures, track and manage multiple deals and more. Imagine easy chat-like negotiation, on the spot. This saves time and makes the process smoother for all involved. It’s currently the only tool available that offers this fully digital experience, but with every changing habit of the marketplace, it’s unlikely that it will be the only one for long.

The world is becoming increasingly digital, and it’s only a matter of time before the real-estate industry is fully immersed in the vast array of interactive new technology being introduced into the market, including virtual reality, paperless transactions, and – of course – online home purchasing.
