There is no denying the fact of how technology has ushered a sea of change in our lives. From healthcare to finance, transportation to retail and services, everyone seems to enjoy technical bliss day in and out. The real estate sector is certainly no exception. Today, homebuyers can sit back at home and hunt for properties with just a few clicks of the mouse. Likewise, the Internet has also made it possible for real estate companies to promote their services and new projects online with large and global clientele. And that’s not all. With the advent of Artificial Intelligence, it’s a broader story ahead. Reportedly, the Asia-Pacific market, which contributes to nearly 40 percent of the global construction, is said to be the fastest evolving in terms of Technology with Indian and China as the two leading countries. According to a research study by Zion Market Research, Artificial Intelligence combined with Machine Vision is destined to take over the real estate market by the end of 2024, catering to needs like surveys and analysis of building structures.
Furthermore, real estate companies in India alone have depicted huge improvement in terms of developing software for information modeling, which functions to offer information related to ongoing construction, the materials used by the builder as well the data on commission. It is to be noted that real estate as a business is much more than working with the location. In essence, it’s a business that involves people, buyers, sellers their preferences, finances, budget, style, mood, taste, and several different factors that come into play. Hence, it only makes sense to leverage the potential offerings of a powerful tool like Artificial Intelligence to make things happen.
