Remote Communication Is Changing Property Auction House Viewings
With NFC technology in a viewer's mobile phone and RFID tags deployed around a property, potential buyers can quickly get information about a building directly on their smartphones.
Jul 17, 2017—
Traditional methods of finding a new home are changing. What used to be a case of seeing somewhere you liked the look of in a local newspaper or out on the street, calling up to arrange a viewing and being shown around by an estate agent could soon be no more. First, most listings moved online. Now, remote communication technology could begin to remove the need for how property viewings work as well.
NFC and RFID Tags
Uses Within Property Viewings
With NFC technology in a viewer's mobile phone and the implementation of RFID tags around a property, potential buyers can quickly get information about a building directly on their smartphones. By simply linking up to specific RFID tags, the select information provided by the seller or estate agent will be accessible about certain features of the property. This means they can stay in control of the information communicated about it from a remote location.
In addition to providing a lot of benefits for property buyers, this technology makes life a lot easier for real-estate agents, auctioneers and private property sales. It also eliminates the need for the homeowner to be in when a viewing has been arranged.
• Appliances: Information regarding gas boiler history checks and other appliances can be provided.
• Taxes: Council tax bands and further information.
• Energy: The energy rating of the home and any appliances included.
• Local amenities: The proximity and regularity of transport links, nearby shops, pubs and other facilities.
• Schools: Information about the closest schools in the area.
• Building work: If the previous owners have done any work on the property since they bought it.
These methods of remote communication are still relatively new to the property market. But during the next few years, they look likely to become a regular feature that should improve property viewing, buying and selling for all involved.
