Solutions for some of the problems in the real estate industry
One of the solutions that REESAS has introduced to solve some of the problems in the industry is BrokerOS. It is a communication platform aimed at enabling agent to agent partnerships within a brokerage. It was developed to increase referrals as well as internal deals and it works just like a social media platform. Another recently introduced solution is RealTimeMLS, which is a solution that facilitates real-time property listing sharing. It makes it possible for agents in the same network to share on-market and off-market listings.
The analysts also wrote that non-public or pre-market listings in the real estate market usually cause pricing inefficiencies. REESAS has therefore introduced RealTimeMLS and BrokerOS to solve those issues. The company also offers a freemium model to its non-enterprise users and those registered have the option of paying a monthly fee of $30 in order to access premium features. The latter includes analytics that give lead insights to the agent and real-time referral notifications within an agent’s area.
