The new technology wave in the travel industry 

The modern consumer craves experiences carefully tailored to their preferences, I am a big fan of being able to save my favourite homes on AirBnB or read reviews of people like me in Booking.com.

Googling “Which university should I go to?” gives you 734,000,000 search results. Quite overwhelming when trying to make one of the biggest decisions of your life.

Fortunately, real estate incumbents are not yet at a Blockbuster, Blackberry or Kodak point of no return. Yet, it is no longer enough to post a house on Rightmove or wait for a potential seller to reach out to you for a valuation.

As an established player, you have the chance to catch the technology wave, you have the experience, the reputation, the customers- so why let new players snatch your hard-earned market share?
