PROSPECTIVE BUYERS will gain quick access to online-based inspections by ‘tapping’ a property signboard with their smartphone, thanks to technology introduced by a Sydney-based real estate group.
The product, introduced to the real estate industry by Starr Partners, uses Near Field Communication (NFC) – or ‘tap it’ technology.
Douglas Driscoll, CEO of Starr Partners, expects the innovation – which is easier to use than QR codes – to transform property sales.
“In my opinion, NFC represents the future of delivering information to real estate consumers and will be commonplace within a few years,” he said.
When a consumer waves a smartphone at an NFC-enabled signboard, it immediately takes them to a full-access interior view.
