How Technology is Transforming the Way Real Estate is Bought & Sold
Imagine being able to borrow funds and buy and sell real estate virtually, all from your computer or mobile device, and having full control and transparency into the process. Will technology ultimately replace humans in real estate transactions?
The processes surrounding real estate transactions have long been managed by legacy systems and human interaction. It is not until the last few years that innovation and technology have really started to transform how real estate is bought and sold. With these technological advances, existing processes will change and the impact will be felt by all involved, including homeowners, investors, agents and brokers.
We were joined by a panel of industry experts who discussed innovation in real estate transactions and its impact on the industry and its participants.
On Wednesday, September 19, we were accompanied by industry experts from Home Bay, a platform for buying and selling homes without a listing agent; CREXi, a commercial real estate exchange; StreamLoan, a digital mortgage platform; and Village Properties, a leading real estate brokerage with over 20 years of experience representing buyers and sellers.

From learning how they sell their products online, to providing products for others to sell online, and learning about back-end solutions that enable participants in the global e-commerce network to optimize productivity.
