Near Field Communication - Real Estate

Buying a new home is one of the most stressful, exciting activities a person can undertake. It’s the ushering in of a new stage in your life as well as an awful experience where you have to deal with awful real estate agents and… okay now I’m just speaking from experience again. The truth is, buying real estate is stressful less because of the people involved than the fact that you have to learn so much in such a short period of time. 

I remember driving through the neighborhoods my wife and I thought we might like to live in, looking for For Sale signs with a Real Estate Digest in our laps and a constant self-reassurance that we did not want to peer in the windows of every home we thought we might like to live in. It really was exciting and I wouldn’t change what we did for the world, but if there is anything that can make that experience a little easier, I am willing to give it a try.

Imagine you are looking for a home the old fashioned way, not via a “virtual tour,” and you come across a home you might be interested in. You can either write down the address and try to remember to look up the home online when you get home, or you could simply hold your phone up to the sign and you have all the information you could possibly need. You can take a virtual tour, find out the asking price, and even find out the next open house date. 

In the future, I believe real estate could greatly benefit from NFC codes, making sure people like the younger version of myself aren’t navigating a Real Estate Digest while trying to navigate the roads.
