“Disruptive” Companies You Can’t Live Without

otherdisruptors

A “disruptor” is a company that goes against the grain in order to evolve an industry. Our online real estate transaction platform, Reozom, is considered a disruptive company because we shake things up when it comes to the norm in real estate.

By leveraging technology, we are able to save homeowners thousands of dollars in their real estate transaction by eliminating expensive agent commission fees.

Here are other companies that may not realize were once disruptors:

Amazon completely changed the game when it came to online shopping. By offering unbeatable prices, people began browsing on Amazon to buy pretty much anything.

Amazon also upped the ante when it came to one-day shipping or even day-of shipping. Now we even use Amazon to binge watch our favorite shows or arrange for every day household items to arrive right on our porches.

Our guess is that you’re probably reading this on your iPhone, so all you have to do is take a look at what you’re holding to realize why Apple was a disruptor.

Apple’s release of the iPod back in 2001 was a total revelation for the tech world. Think about it, this was back then people were still walking around with portable CD players. Now, we are able to manage our entire lives right from the palm of our hand.

Can you imagine a world where you couldn’t binge watch Walking Dead for hours into the night? Us either. Sorry, Blockbuster.

I think we can all agree that the on-demand streaming of movies and shows that Netflix brought directly to our televisions was either the best thing that ever happened to us (or the very reason for our own demise).

Ikea isn’t such an obvious one, but it absolutely was a disruptor. Ikea gave us the ability to buy cheap furniture and instantly furnish an entire house, if we so desired.

Although, let’s be real, Ikea could still help out by making the dressers just a little bit easier to build.

Two guys that knew nothing about the taxi industry completely transformed the taxi industry after rolling out Uber. Now, even people who live in the suburbs have the luxury of hitching a ride to a concert or the bar.

Not to mention, documenting an Uber ride on Snapchat now provides all of us with some high quality Friday night entertainment.

All of these companies have become a major part of our lifestyles.
If you love and use these companies, we can guarantee that you will love Reozom.

The Top 3 Technologies Impacting the Real Estate Industry

The real estate industry is facing major transformation thanks to technology.

But don’t be alarmed, technology is making the industry easier, faster and stronger than ever.

Here are the Top 3 Technologies that are impacting the world of real estate for the better.

Online Transaction Platforms

 We don’t mean to toot our own horn here, but technology like Reozom is completely changing the way real estate is done. Our platform keeps the buyer and the seller connected in the same place throughout the entire transaction.

Reozom makes the (typically stressful) real estate process much easier for everyone involved, including real estate agents. Users can list properties, browse pics, chat with each other, schedule showings and send offers from the luxury of their laptop.

Oh, and all those legal disclosures to sign? That’s done on our platform, too.

Thanks to Reozom’s technology, the buying and selling of a home is more streamlined than ever before. Not to mention, Reozom eliminates expensive commission fees, which saves people thousands of dollars.

Virtual Reality

Real estate is second on the list of industries being transformed by virtual reality. We are guessing that you can imagine why. Pretty soon, people will buy a Google Cardboard, stick their phone in it and take a virtual tour of any home they’re interested in (even if it’s on the other side of the world).

Virtual reality will save time, money and gas. Who would have thought that real estate teaming up with technology would be so eco-friendly?

Drones

 To be honest, we’re not expecting drones to do too much for the real estate industry aside from taking stellar bird’s eye property photos and videos.

But drones are awesome and who wouldn’t want one? Taking beyond impressive images of your property is a great excuse to get your hands on the drone of your dreams. The better the property photos the faster the sale, right?

Plus, buying a drone wouldn’t even put a dent in the thousands you save from using Reozom. Just don’t crash it into your new neighbor’s house after you move…

Selling Real Estate with Social Media

Along with marketing property listings on all of the major sites like the MLS, Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com, the online real estate transaction platform, Reozom, also posts each listing on Facebook.

When sellers share Reozom’s post onto their own Facebook page, the number of people the listing reaches grows exponentially.

Rather than giving you the facts about Facebook, today we are going to share a real life example of what happens when a Reozom user shares their listing on the most popular social network.

Just a week ago, a Reozom seller shared their listing from Reozom’s Facebook page on the day it was posted. Their family and friends then shared the post, as well.

According to Facebook analytics, by the end of the day, this post had 600 click-throughs (meaning 600 people visited the listing’s page directly from Facebook). According to Reozom’s analytics, this listing had a total of 699 visits that day.

Which means, YOU GOT IT, a majority of that listing’s traffic came from FACEBOOK on its first day of being posted. Not to mention, this property then had a showing the same weekend it was listed.

So get on Facebook and share your listing today. Encourage your family and friends to help out and give it a share, too.

Make sure to include the hashtag #ReozomHome in your post for the opportunity to be selected as the Reozom Home of the Week. If chosen, your listing will be featured in a custom social media post that’s shared on ALL of Reozom’s social media channels!
