"Disruption" is the big word these days in technology and, to be honest, pretty much every industry there is out there. Indeed, this includes industries you wouldn't consider "tech firms" by any stretch of the imagination. What Uber and Lyft have done to the taxi industry is a good example.
Well, it's taken its sweet time, but disruption has finally come to the real estate industry and this is the subject of my latest article for BiggerPockets. As I note,
Real estate has been one of the last industries to get disrupted, but it is being disrupted. And even if it weren’t, as Steve Forbes put it, “You have to disrupt yourself or others will do it for you.”
You may not want to change and become more technologically adept, but you are going to have to just to keep pace.
But on the bright side, there are huge opportunities to taking advantage of all of the new technology and platforms that real estate investors now have access to. It's time for real estate investors to take advantage!
The piece is based heavily on the book Exponential Organizations by Salim Ismail. You can check out the article here.
