People can also subscribe to real estate resources on social media applications that are built into their smartphone along with calculators that can be added to their phone as well.
Mobile Technology for Real Estate Agents
Agents can use their phone for texting and phone calls and other areas of productivity , of course, but they can also subscribe to lead generation services where people can opt in to hearing from them because they’ve texted a code on a house listing sign that puts them in direct contact with a realtor.

These phones can link you to webpages instantly, meaning that you can scan a code on a lawn sign or on a realtor’s business card to get information such as a detailed listing from outside a home, including taking you right into that virtual home tour, for example.
