The Curb Call app is solving some unique problems in the real estate industry.
On demand agents.
It’s a neat idea, one that attempts to speed up the process to real-time.
I’m all for real-time.
The faster an agent can respond to a home buyer’s inquiry, the more likely it is that they can be helped out, and the more likely that a transaction can be closed.
I don’t know the statistics for revenue generated through yard-signs, but I figure that this app (if successfully adopted by consumers) will bump this up quite a bit.
Hooray! New revenue sources!
However - and this is where it gets really cool - that’s not all the app does.
Cub Call also provides security for agents who are on showings.
How great is this!
Whether you respond to a Curb Call request or you’re off on a separate showing, then you can turn on the app and it will know where you are at all times.
For some, this might sound creepy.
But for those who have read the horrifying stories of violence that have spotted the newswire in recent months, I’m sure that this is welcome news.
If you happen to unexpectedly leave the radius of the house, then an emergency alert will be triggered, notifying the contact who you have specified. There is also a big red panic button that you can press if feeling threatened, which also notified your emergency contact.
It’s far from perfect, I know.
But what I admire is the fact that the app is attempting to address the problem.
We just need more tech companies to follow suit.
Have you tried Curb Call? Is what I said accurate or inaccurate at all?
