At CES 2018, the consumer electronics’ mega show in Las Vegas this week, I hung out with robots, tried out the latest VR headsets, and talked—yes, talked—to a host of appliances, from a bathroom mirror to a refrigerator. After scouring the show floor, I found several products this year that hold real potential to shake up the real estate market. In the video below, I outlined what I think is some of the best tech I saw at the show this year. But of course, my rankings are subjective so use the poll below to vote for your favorite!
Consumers are increasingly curious about smart home technology, and they’re turning to real estate agents as a vital resource for information. Forty-two percent of consumers recently surveyed say they would look to their real estate agent to provide suggestions about how staging their home with smart-home products could impact their sale, according to a new survey conducted by Coldwell Banker. The company presented their findings at the consumer electronics’ mega event, CES 2018, which is taking place in Las Vegas this week. Coldwell Banker is a sponsor of the Smart Home Marketplace at this year’s show.
“Our consumer findings underscore the need for industrywide smart-home education for real estate sales agents,” says Charlie Young, president and CEO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
Our interview with David Marine, senior vice president of marketing at Coldwell Banker, delves further into what real estate professionals can expect from buyers and sellers over the next few years:
The technology industry’s mega event, known as CES, kicks off in Las Vegas this week, and thousands of companies are gearing up to show off their latest innovations. And this year’s trade show promises plenty for the real estate industry as well.
This will be my third run covering CES from Las Vegas, and it’s one of the few conferences that brings the city to a practical standstill. More than 3,900 companies are showing off products throughout the city’s hotels and convention center. I’ll admit it can be overwhelming; people zoom by on Hoverboards, drones swarm overhead, televisions loom larger than your eyes can take in, booming speakers rattle you to the core, cars drive by on their own, and random robots rush up to greet you. Thankfully, when you need to escape from all the flashiness, you can slip on a VR headset and become immersed in the sight and sounds of the beaches of Tahiti. While the CES show floor is a wild sight, it does offer one of the best glimpses into the technology that could rock the real estate world in the next few years. And I’m here to find the tools that may transform the way you conduct showings, advance how you market properties, and make your mobile office even more efficient.
In preparation, hundreds of PR folks have flooded my voicemail and email inboxes, all with promises that they hold the next big thing for your business. Do they? We’ll see. As the week wears on, you can see our extended coverage from the show floor detailing product debuts, tech news, and our annual video countdown to the biggest game-changers for your business.
Here are a few categories that I’m keeping my eye on at this year’s show:
Smart home tech: These devices are getting more sophisticated, easier to use, and more affordable. Our favorite artificial intelligence tools—Amazon’s Alexa, Siri, and Google Home—are being folded in to ever more products. I’ll be scouting the show floor for more innovations in the smart-home arena. For the third consecutive year, Coldwell Banker will be sponsoring the Smart Home Marketplace, so we’ll also check in to hear what they see as the most important innovations for real estate pros.
Smart cities: Technology is expected to reshape our cities, combining artificial intelligence, data analytics, electric grids, public safety, and intelligent transportation. Global spending on smart city initiatives is projected to reach more than $34 billion by 2020. I’ll be looking to understand how municipalities are planning to connect communities in new ways with more sensors that can do everything from monitoring air quality to alerting police when the sound of gunshots are detected.
5G: This super-fast wireless speed, which is supposed to be 100 times faster and five times more responsive than what we currently use, is coming to a smart phone near you. AT&T and Verizon are expected to give status updates on the fifth-generation network technology during this year’s show. How will the ability to transfer and upload information instantly change your business?
Drones: It wouldn’t be a proper CES show without drones buzzing in the air. What are the latest advances in capturing property photos from the sky? The technology is getting easier to use, and a bodyguard-like drone has me intrigued.
Virtual reality: VR headsets allow you to take buyers inside of a listing from anywhere in the world. Real estate pros have already been experimenting with the technology, but I’m looking forward to checking in on the latest developments from CES.
There’s plenty more. Smart appliances, cameras, and of course, there are always those unexpected exhibitors who manage to make you raise your eyebrow as you walk by—was that a laundry folding robot? I’ll definitely be stopping by to get his card!
Over my eleven year experience of buying and selling property Paula Cramer was top notch. Very knowledgeable and professional. I will highly recommend her and use her again.Carmen C.
We had our cabin for sale for some time and used several different companies but Paula & Century 21 Four Seasons were the only ones that came through with a sale for us. Great job. She ALWAYS made herself available by phone. WE really liked Paula.Jeff & Mary S.
I just wanted to take a minute to let you know I have already received a wire transfer into my account. In fact, it came in yesterday!
Thank-you so much for all your help. You and your team made this process so easy! I have been involved in a few real estate
transactions in my day, but never one this easy! You and your team are the best ever!
"Paula was extremely efficient and helpful in all aspects of the sale of my property. I would highly recommend her to anyone as the realtor for the sale of their property. Very knowledgeable in her profession plus honest and helpful through the sales process!! "Mary B.
Paula is an excellent and very knowledgeable real estate agent whether buying or selling property in the Smoky Mountains area. She is delightful to work with, very communicative, responsive, patient, and not pushy or overly aggressive. Had I not enjoyed working with her on the purchasing side, I would not have called her to also list our property for sale several years later. I would highly recommend Paula to any friends looking for a vacation home in the area."
"We were comparing properties. As we were considering a move and were investigating what our property may be worth. Paula made contact with us and her professionalism stood out. We have dealt with many real estate agents and were very impressed by Paula. Thanks again Paula We never dreamed we would sell our home In Such record time... Any questions we had were always answered by Paula in a timely manner Again her professional manner showed through and we were very happy with her. She was very easy to talk to and would call me back quickly even when on vacation. She respected our opinions and would always let us know hers without making us feel like we didn't have any other options. Allowing us to make informed decisions. We would and have recommended her to anyone smile emoticon Keep up the good work" -Glen and Susan G. Glen and Susan G.
