2020 was an unprecedented year – and, like many markets, the world of real estate has changed dramatically. The shifts that have occurred impact all areas of the industry and will shape the current and future technology needs of those that own, operate, occupy and invest in property.
Predicting real estate technology trends for 2021 may seem like an impossible task, but in many ways, the economic uncertainty of 2020 was the catalyst that accelerated trends already in place. The shift to remote working and the need to keep one’s distance from others sped up technology adoption in unprecedented ways across all aspects of the industry.
It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see that there’s no going back. In 2021, we will continue to see reliance on digital tools to help real estate businesses increase agility, leverage operational efficiencies and embrace flexibility like never before.
Brian Zrimsek, Industry Principal at MRI Software takes us through how 2020 has changed the way we live, work and play, and the impact on the real estate sector now and in the future. Brian tells us why flexibility is key and how technology offers a path forward.
