Robots in real estate: just a matter of time

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Robots hosting property viewings may not yet be in Thailand, but they’re coming.

In the United States there’s Zenplace, a service that enables tenants to instantly see properties with robots that provide smart guided property showings.

When you see a house you like, text a number to get an unlock code and the real estate robot inside provides a guided tour, property information, neighbourhood insights, real-time rental trends, and on-the-spot rental application.

Isn’t that exactly what human real estate agents are doing now?

Zenplace claims to be reinventing property Management 50 million rental properties and 100 million renters across the U.S.

“We set out to change the property management and rental experience by providing property owners and tenants a faster and easier way to rent and lease,” said Rahul Mewawalla, the Chief Executive Officer of Zenplace.

In the U.S. the average rental home sits on the market for 54 days, and a significant number of traditional lease transactions fall through before leases are signed.

Property buyers are, it seems, warming to real estate robots in a big way.

According to realtor Rabia Levy: “This new way to rent makes for a better rental experience. Tenants can instantly see a property and they love the smart guided tours by real estate robots.”

“Owners love how their property can now be rented instantly instead of weeks or months. Owners have had their homes rented with Zenplace within three days.”

“Technology has significantly reduced the time it takes to rent a property, increasing owner returns in the process. Property owners are also provided with an industry-first 100 percent happiness guarantee,” explained Mewawalla.

Rental property owners enter their address online, submit basic information and Zenplace starts renting and managing their property within minutes – and with the help of real estate robots for viewings.
