According to Gartner, voice based queries, today’s fastest growing mobile search queries, as well as visual search, will be the accelerated norm. Feeding the already booming AI sector.
Sellers will voice query their mobile device, “What’s my home worth today and how many potential vetted buyer fits are there?” Buyers will be pinged the minute the seller is ready to sell.
The vetted buyers will be updated, at their query, with available houses that fit, not just their position in life, financial ability, and emotional needs. Their ‘AI assistant’ will have personal specs drilled down to their neurology and heartbeat.
Gartner says by 2020, AI-driven creation of “counterfeit reality,” or fake content, will outpace AI’s ability to detect it, fomenting digital distrust.
This ‘digital distrust’ will keep certain segments of the real estate buying and selling public on the peripheral of the action I described above. Therefore, a limited number of real estate agents will be necessary to assist them in the old fashioned way, similar to how some agents are acting now in 2017. Longing for the good old days of 2006.
