Real estate technology is ever-changing and we will only see its advancement in the future. Those involved in this field must be proactive and kept up to speed with the latest technological applications to continually challenge the competition in the industry. With rising computing power and larger sets of data, Big Data will become increasingly accurate and more widely utilized in the industry even for asset or market specific analysis. Property management could also begin to see some levels of automation such as apps or tools to detect and schedule required repairs and tenant management. Construction materials and techniques will also become a huge aspect in the real estate industry as technology evolves to provide more efficiency in the development process, likely reducing costs for the investor. These are just some example of countless possibilities in the future as technology continues to rapidly progress, which could potentially change the way the industry functions as a whole.
