Is Technology a Time Suck?

Is Technology a Time Suck? In the fast-paced world of real estate, agents juggle multiple tasks simultaneously, from client meetings to property viewings, negotiations, and administrative duties, not to mention the day-to-day marketing they do by themselves.

Many real estate companies provide programs and systems to streamline their agents’ workflows to meet these demands. However, one of the critical questions that emerge amidst the addition of the company-supplied tools is whether these programs and systems are actually helping agents or adding to their already overflowing plates, adding extra work to their day. (or the guilt of not being able to fully use them effectively)

Is Technology a Time Suck?

For any of you who have been in the real estate world for any amount of time, you know technology has revolutionized the industry. Agents now have powerful tools to manage their listings, communicate with clients, analyze market trends, and much much more. The arsenal of available technologies is vast and ever-expanding, from customer relationship management (CRM) software to virtual reality property tours and design software and apps.

The Pitfalls of Overreliance

While these tools undoubtedly enhance productivity and efficiency, there’s a fine line between empowerment and overwhelm. Agents risk becoming bogged down by the sheer volume of platforms and systems they’re expected to implement and use. The more time an agent spends figuring out these new programs and apps, the more they may lose their focus on what is actually making them money: prospecting for new clients, working with other clients, and closing deals – i.e., SELLING!

Brokerages that provide their agents with a multitude of software and apps mean well, but all these perks may be setting up their agents for failure. 

If you had all the gadgets and gizmos for your business, do you have the time to use them AND maintain your business of working with clients? What if you spent all your time during the day/week/month figuring them out and trying to work them into your business? AND that’s all you get done? You may find that none of your time has been spent connecting with your clients and not producing $$$ — not really.
