Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.

– Christian Lous Lange

Acquiring the latest bright shiny objects hardly ensures real estate success. Keep business fundamentals front and center when you’re deciding which “solutions” you truly need.

Start Here 10 questions to ask as you consider new technology Ask yourself: How am I using the products and services I have now? How could I get more functionality from what I have? Are there solutions that would save me time or money? Where are the pain points in my processes? Is there a new technology that could help? How much time am I willing to spend to learn and customize new tools?

Ask vendors: How would your solution fit with my current business and marketing plans? How will your product interact and integrate with my current setup? How specifically can your product be customized to fit my needs? Are there other people in my area using your product? Does it play well with the MLS?
