The technologies that will transform real estate


On-demand services, virtual reality and artificial intelligence will transform real estate, according to Inman Connect keynote speaker Kara Swisher.

  • Because of on-demand services, people are going to stores less and less — Walmart’s stores may go to 10,000 square feet from 200,000 today, Swisher said. “What is that going to do to real estate if there is no big box retailer?”
  • Virtual reality will also be transformative for real estate, Swisher said. Though being engaged on VR platform is “very different” from being engaged on a website, it does mean “you don’t have to see the houses as much,” she said.
  • Artifical Intelligence “could replace real estate agents for sure … if it gets you what you want.”
