A real estate broker has developed a voice activated app for Amazon Echo that helps buyers and sellers purchase property via voice activation.
The president of Better Homes and Gardens Tech Valley, Miguel Berger, announced the launch of the Alexa-voiced app - Real Estate - last week for usage with Amazon's Echo device, which is a smart speaker capable of voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms and streaming podcasts.
The app works for both buyers and sellers, and seems straightforward to use, as demonstrated in a video by Berger.
If buying a home, the app inquires about budgets and bedrooms with matches pulled from the local MLS integration.
When looking to sell, the user is asked a few basic questions, and an agent is notified via the Voiceter Pro real estate state companion app, which underlies the Echo talk-track. Thus, it’s also a lead capture tool. Voiceter Pro will be ready in a few weeks.
The app is currently being marketed at brokers so they'll buy market-exclusive rights to the app and can then disperse leads.
