Meet the future of real estate. From Wikipedia
People buying a home ask questions like “How good is the local school?”, “How safe is the neighborhood?”, and “How high is the electric bill?”. Having purchased multiple homes, I find that real estate agents don’t know the answers to these questions or are banned by state law from answering. This is quite dangerous. My first neighborhood had two murderers and multiple pimps, but my real estate agent never said anything.
I think real estate agents are crooked, and robots should replace them.
Some will say “But buying or selling real estate is too complicated for a robot!” I don’t buy it. In fact, I bet my robot real estate agents would provide superior customer service.
I’d name my robot agent Johnny. Johnny would take your desires (price, bedrooms, etc.) and show you homes. His programming would prevent him from pushing a home on you above your budget or without enough bedrooms. While human agents typically scan MLS, Johnny could look through hundreds of databases to find you a home.
If you asked Johnny about safety, he could pull crime databases and estimate crime rates in your neighborhood. Johnny could reach into your state’s testing database for local school information. He could even find electric and gas bills.
Worried about a “title search?” Johnny could do that. All you need now is a lawyer for signing forms, but with robot lawyers coming online soon, Johnny might do that too.
I, for one, would welcome our new robot real estate overlords.
