Technology, Real Estate and Google Mobilegeddon

  What does Technology have to do with  real estate?  Realtor Magazine just featured an article on The Internet of Things.  Author, Meg White, shares "A growing web of connectivity among people, devices and homes will upend the way we interact with the world. "   I agree that  The term "Technology" is used rather loosely as a catch all phrase.  We live in a fast paced society and people typically want answers to their questions immediately!  Technology changes the way we do business and our lifestyle.

What does Technology have to do with Real Estate?

 

 

MOBILEGEDDON AND GOOGLE

Google just changed the way information will be ranked and search engine optimization of the way websites will appear.  Tech geeks referred to the implementation as "mobilegeddon"  which went into effect April 21, 2015. CNNMoney shared 5 Fast Facts of the new Google impact of  what it  really means for a website to be mobile ready.  Consumers expect to search with ease for what they are looking for.  If a website is not updated it takes forever to load on any mobile device.  Home buyers don't have the patience to wait for a website to load they want to be able to search instantly and have information at their fingertips!  I do my utmost best to stay informed of technology changes so I can implement the best "search tools" for my clients.  I'm happy to say that I survived  the Google "mobilegeddon" and my Lake Charles Real Estate website is mobile ready!

 

 

 

 

mobile website

This is how my Lake Charles Real Estate website appears on my iPhone, it looks the same as it does on a Tablet or Laptop computer.  Lake Charles Home Buyers and consumers can easily search  Lake Charles real estate on any device effectively.

 

 Technology in real estate is not limited to "Social Media" and blasting your listings on social platforms.  Social Media is a great avenue to share and connect with the key aspect being "SOCIAL".  Just because a  Realtor shares a property for sale on a social media platform doesn't guarantee the  visibility of the post  or  creating a buzz or  interaction with others.  Does the agent have an effective media strategy in place? When listing a Lake Charles Home for Sale,  and choosing a Lake Charles Realtor   check out the Realtor's Facebook, Twitter and Google activity.  If you notice a lapse between posts or activity then the Realtor is probably not using Social Media as an asset to market your home.

I am very easy to follow on many social platforms where you can find my real estate tips, blogs, and experiences about Lake Charles and our communities via Marilyn’s Lake Charles Real Estate Blog.
