There’s no denying that advances in technology have changed many aspects of the real estate landscape. Klamath Falls real estate buyers and sellers now have the ability to view floorplans online, virtually check out potential neighborhoods, get pre-approval for loans and more.
For Klamath real estate professionals, online listings and social media can improve their market reach without the expense of traditional print media and bring down their overall cost of business.
How Real Estate Has Changed for you as a Seller
If you wanted to sell your home in Klamath Falls ten years ago, you met with a licensed realtor who guided you through how to prepare your home for the local market and price it appropriately. You signed a contract with a realtor who would take pictures, plant a sign in your yard, list your home with the MLS and place an ad for it in the Herald and News or Nickel. They might also have scheduled an open house or listed your home on their own website.
Today, a new property listing can appear across many different platforms in a very short amount of time. Gone are the days of clunky and hard to navigate MLS websites. Popular real estate search sites such as Realtor.com and Zillow provide sellers with attractive listings that are easy to navigate. Alongside them are social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter which expand your exposure and can create a buzz about your real estate.
You can also expect your home listing to have much greater appeal with modern features more likely to attract the right buyers. Realtors today often include virtual walk throughs, 3D floor plans, video, high quality resolution photos and even drone footage of property listings.
Beyond the listing itself, advances in scheduling and the ability to sign documents online has improved the overall efficiency of the selling process and has shortened the sales cycle. Offers can be made, extended, negotiated and accepted in just a fraction of the time that it once took via applications like Skype and OneDrive. This makes for happy sellers and satisfied buyers.
Tech Advances that Benefit You as the Buyer

In moments you can research all of the best neighborhoods, learn more about the local school district, and see what businesses serve a given area. You can also learn about the things that might steer you away from a neighborhood or city, such as crime rates, HOA restrictions or unemployment. Real estate companies and individual licensed real estate agents can improve their presence even more by offering information and reviews of the communities themselves.
