The world we currently live in is completely digitalised. From buying groceries to mobile phones, everything can be done with the tap of a button. Looking for your dream home is no different. Homebuyers can compare the deals offered by various developers and agents online, filtering them based on different criteria and choosing the one that best suits their needs. The competitiveness among agents due to the online model has come as a blessing for prospective homebuyers but has created many challenges for agents.
Some of the challenges Real Estate agents face daily are due to the political climate, volatile markets, increasing mortgage rates and ever-evolving technology.
