Progressive Web Apps

Hello All,

Let's talk Progressive Web Apps!

Progressive Web Apps are applications that work across platforms through the web. They are more interactive than typical websites but not tied down to single platform like a standard application. They literally are the best of both worlds and well, real estate professionals have a few reasons to use them. So, let's discuss them:

BRANDING

Branding is a great reason to use Progressive Web Apps. Because they are more interactive than regular websites, you can create better experiences with potential clients. There is research being conducted on how much more effective Progressive Web Apps are at lead capturing than a standard website and in real estate, leads are everything!

LISTINGS

Listings, on or off the MLS, can be better interacted with by prospective buyers and renters in Progressive Web Apps than on typical websites. While typical websites have come a long with with virtual tours and Matterport 3D, Progressive Web Apps can take that a step further by creating a more personalized experience.

CURRENT MARKET TRENDS

Progressive Web Apps are a great way to relay information about Current Market Trends to past, present, and future clients. You have more freedom for people to personalize the data they want to see in a Progressive Web App than you do on a typical website. People may have various reasons for wanting Current Market Trend data whether they want to buy, sell, or lease a property.

You also may have a combination of the above reasons or a reason I did not mention on here as to why Progressive Apps can help your real estate business.

Now how to make a Progressive Web App?

There are various places on the web to do that, but since I have not used any one of them I will not recommend them here. You can search on the web because all of them have various levels of pricing and what services they provide in those levels of pricing. Some create a mobile app along with the Progressive Web App. There are various solutions out there and it is best that you take time to research the options out there and do which one is best for you should you choose to go in the Progressive Web App direction for your real estate business.

Best of all, Progressive Web Apps work on Chrome OS!

Thanks for reading!

Until next time,
Dave

A new gem from HP

Hello All, HP has been on a roll lately, now coming out with a new flagship consumer Chromebook, the Chromebook x360 14c. There will be multiple variants of this Chromebook and it will be available both directly from HP and from Best Buy. At minimum, you get a Pentium 6405u processor with 4 GB of RAM and at the high end you get an Intel 10th Gen i5 with 8 GB of RAM. I am not too sure about hard drive specifications but the good news is that it does come with all the necessary ports including a card reader! It is also USI Pen compatible for those who like an e-signature to look like a wet signature. This is a 14" convertible machine with a touchscreen which should be the right mix of business and pleasure for most real estate professionals. By all accounts, the lowest spec Pentium model will start at $499 once it becomes available. I am personally very interested in this one and I may very well get one myself, though I've probably said that before on here and haven

Just Checking In

Hello, Just thought I'd check in. There is not a lot going on right now in terms of Chrome OS for Real Estate because of the recent events. I stand with the protesters and I have spoken at depth about this on my personal social media accounts, so I will not go into detail on that here other than to say that Black Lives Matter. Just wanted to make sure everyone was doing well. I hope have some news to post in the very near future in terms of Chrome OS for real estate. Until next time, Dave

Using Chromebooks for Training

Hello All, One thing Realtors and Brokers have to consistently do is train and earn CEUs (Continuing Education Units). The cool thing is that this can all be done completely online and since every online learning platform for Real Estate that I have encountered is completely web-based, that means you can do it on Chrome OS! A couple great places to get real estate training done online are: The CE Shop NAR Online Learning Center I am aware that there are other sites out there; I just personally have not used them yet so I am not going to recommend a site that I have not personally used yet. Another thing I might add is that we should not just be focused on what is just required in terms of CEUs, we should also be constantly learning about different types of technology and how they may help (or in some cases not help) how we conduct business in the Real Estate industry. Usually I have a little more to say than this, but with the current pandemic situation things have been a
