RealTimeRental Turns NFC Chip Technology into New Real Estate Marketing Opportunity

The internet has already reshaped the way the Real Estate industry conducts business. In order to remain competitive in today’s Real Estate market, it is imperative that Real Estate professionals take the steps to make their business model mobile friendly.

Keeping the current technological trends in mind, RealTimeRental developed Tap Tags™ as a simple way for real estate professionals to embrace mobile technology.

“With just a simple tap of a phone on the Tap Tag™, your clients will be looking at your message right on their NFC capable smartphone,” said Joseph Testa, co-founder RealTimeRental.

Tap tags™ have an adhesive backing, and can be programmed to open a URL to any website, bring up contact information or digital business cards, make phone calls, send emails, and direct people to social media profiles. For offices that use RealTimeRental as their vacation rental software, Tap Tags™ can be programmed to pull property information directly from the software.

Using the same technology that is becoming common in credit cards, Tap Tags™ contain top of the line NFC (near field communication) chips that facilitate the communication between the tag and the smartphone.

“Tap tags™ eliminate the need for real estate agents to print out physical copies of property sheets for interested buyers. Simply place a Tap Tag™ inside of a property, and interested parties can immediately get access to property information and photos right on their Smartphone,” said Testa.

In addition to placing Tap Tags™ inside to virtually anywhere, water proof Tap Tags™ are also available to put outside a property or on listing signs.

Along with their ability to display property information, Tap Tags™ have multiple uses that are relevant to today’s real estate market.
