Internet Real Estate business
The Business Idea
Internet Real Estate business is an electronic version of the real estate industry. in the real world, property agents would drive around town seeking for properties either for sale or for rent. They would then keep a list of the properties they have found in a book or a diary. Whenever they found a buyer, they would drive the buyer to the physical location of the property. If the buyer buys or rents the property, they get a commission both from the buyer and the seller. All of that is hard work!
How It Works
Internet real estate allows property owners to list their properties for sale or for rent on a special website specifically built for that purpose. The website is built in such a way that consumers seeking to buy or rent a property simply search the website until they have found their choice of property.
Once a potential buyer contacts the seller, they would go through the details of the property – sizing, amenities, condition, and pricing, if not stated. After which, an appointment for the viewing of the property would usually be scheduled and in some cases, potential buyers may request for a refurnish of certain amenities or parts of the property. If terms and conditions are met between both parties, the buyer would usually negotiate for the best offer if interested and a deposit may be requested by the owner. Finally, both parties will agree on a date for full payment, signing on official payment, and the handover of keys to the property.
Why Choose Internet Real Estate Business?
Internet real estate surfaced around 1999 when technology advanced and statistics prove that more than 1 million homes were sold by the owners themselves in just America, in 2000.
According to Realtor, 90% of home buyers searched online during the process of seeking for a property and the percentage of consumers searching for information relating to real estate on Google has increased by 253% over the last 4 years. With an increase of 5.5% from just 0% of people using the internet to carry our house sales within the last decade in UK, figures show that there will be a huge increase to percentage of 50 by 2018. Figures will hit 70% by 2020, with only a third of the UK population seeking help through traditional methods of real estate agents.
Due to distance, personal commitments and time constraints, many turn to the web to carry out their daily activities – online shopping, booking of tickets and even for communication between parties. Using the web to put out properties for sale and purchasing properties is no exception. The age of technology has aided in reducing time and money within internet real estate. Users may list their properties or search for them at their fingertips, reaching out to a greater number of people significantly, as compared to traditional methods. In contrast, the traditional methods of contacting and meeting up with a real estate agent cost more money (agent and transportation fees) and time.
