What’s on the horizon of proptech?

What kind of technology will change the face of real estate in the future?  

Horizon planning is a business framework that looks at how business models change over time. 

In this article we look at how the shape of technology disruption is changing itself and how that will in turn affect what comes next in proptech.

What is the cost of not innovating?

How much money could the real estate industry kiss goodbye if we decide to bury our heads in the sand around innovation? 

The commission pool for Australian real estate over the 12 months to end June 2018 was estimated at $6.95 billion. 

But poor customer experience is driving that number down and making technology solutions look like a great answer to poor service. So what does the industry look like when between $1billion and $2.6 billion runs out the door?

The report identifies how enormous spending on AI and voice recognition is going to change our lives, and how advertising is now nearly all data driven and digital.

I’ve dived in and read the full report and applied it to the real estate and property industry so you don’t have to!

Rise of the iBuyers

Will iBuying disrupt Australian and NZ real estate?

The next challenge to Australian and New Zealand real estate agents will come not from a fancy technology but a change in thinking around how property can be sold. 


The growth of the iBuyers in the USA is moving from being an ‘interesting’ development to ‘uh-oh’, meaning the concept is not just getting traction, but is on the verge of scaling. 


Expect it to come to Australia and New Zealand soon.
