Trending – Voice Assistants

Voice assistants (think “Alexa,” from Amazon) are becoming increasingly useful in real estate. They ease the transfer of money, and some property managers are experimenting with allowing their tenants to pay rent through their voice assistants.

A new deal between Zego and S2 Capital is linking smart-home devices in 30,000 apartments over the next 3 years. NTT Data services also implemented an Amazon Alexa skill to cater to mortgage companies. It allows loan officers to use voice commands to look up and check the status of loans. The real estate industry has increasingly been experimenting with voice-assistant devices for business, such as requesting information about homes for sale in the area or using AI at open houses to deliver property details.
