Emerging Technology Trends in Commercial Real Estate

Technology can reduce the time to identify and close business and automate time-consuming activities to reduce inefficiencies, improve tenant experience, and boost team efficiency.

FREMONT, CA: Commercial real estate is an essential asset class as many real estate professionals still use excel spreadsheets, handwritten notes, and other antiquated technologies. Manual processes prevent organizations from capturing the total value of every transaction. In today's tech-enabled and data-driven environment, organizations must modernize their technology stack and embrace property technology to become more efficient and close more high-quality deals in less time. The appropriate systems can help organizations better use real estate's key concepts (location, ROI, and relationships).

Property management software

Managing commercial assets is a complex task for regulators and businesses. They need a platform that handles accounts, oversees the leasing cycle, and stores legal papers. Property management software is a must-have for any commercial real estate organization that wants to run efficiently. A commercial real estate firm's property management software depends on size and nature.

Virtual tour or remote showing

Most buyers and tenants like to inspect a home before making an offer or signing a lease. COVID-19 changed the status quo, like many other things. Therefore, commercial real estate organizations have to adjust. Tools to virtually show properties are crucial to the industry's operations and won't change soon. High-quality videos, Zoom meetings, and mobile apps like WhatsApp and FaceTime are famous for showing real-time properties. These technologies let purchasers or lessors view an unfinished or empty property while adding furniture, equipment, and layouts.

Analyzing tenants

Commercial real estate leasing has always been complex because of tenant qualifications. Companies want to fill vacancies quickly, but tenant due diligence is vital before signing a lease.

Most CRE firms use brokers, services, and consultants to discover and screen renters. Technology automates the most time-consuming steps. Commercial real estate organizations employ data analytics, AI, and machine learning to evaluate tenants. Predictive analytics, a subset of AI, can analyze the risk of leasing to a tenant based on credit, criminal, and eviction histories. Automation and AI decrease time-consuming procedures and speed up screening, improving tenant satisfaction.
