Real estate technology is constantly changing with the aim of making it easier for agents, consumers, and investors to do business in this industry. In many ways, the Internet has driven these industry-wide changes. Prospective home buyers, for instance, are now able to collect a great deal of information on properties before even speaking with a real estate agent.
Successful agents aren’t fighting these changes. Instead, they’re taking advantage of them. So, if you’re looking to make more money as an agent, you should keep your eyes on emerging real estate technologies. With some foresight and the right strategies, you can easily make more money with a little help from the right type of technology for real estate. Read on and gain some perspective on the potential that emerging real estate technologies have to boost your earnings.
Real Estate Technology: RealtyShares
For those interested in real estate investments or financing, RealtyShares is definitely something to look into. Essentially, RealtyShares serves as an online real estate investing marketplace – a service that connects real estate investors with projects in need of financing. With as little as $5,000, you could start investing in real estate projects of your choosing in a simple, transparent manner.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to grow your real estate business with a few of your own projects which require financing, RealtyShares is an excellent option as well. You can learn more about RealtyShares in Pat’s podcast interview with Nav Athwal.
Real Estate Technology: Hurdlr
If you need a better way to track the bottom line of your business, Hurdlr is a great option. Hurdlr functions similarly to other mobile finance apps, but it offers a variety of features useful for most independent professionals – including real estate agents.
With the help of Hurdlr, you can easily track your income, your expenses, and your estimated annual taxes. The availability of this information allows for better business decisions so you can grow your business smarter, faster and make more real estate profits.

Real Estate Technology: CurbCall
Want a better way to manage leads and how your agents respond to them? CurbCall is it. This innovative technology features the ability to track when leads come through, who they go to, and how long leads are engaged. In many ways, CurbCall could be described as the Uber of real estate.
In addition to connecting agents with better leads, CurbCall forces agents to be responsive and accountable for their engagements. With the help of something like CurbCall, you’ll be able to ensure your team is taking full advantage of the leads they receive.

Real Estate Technology: Secure Pay One
Secure Pay One is the final real estate technology we’ll cover today. It’s a web-based service that provides an alternative to professional property management. Secure Pay One offers several incredibly useful features including rent collection, maintenance tracking, and customer service.
It also allows agents to select their own maintenance professionals, making it easier to predict expenses and keep maintenance costs as low as possible. Oh, and believe it or not, Secure Pay One only costs $50 per month, so definitely look into this service if you’re planning to expand the property-rental side of your business.
