3 Steps to Streamlining Your Real Estate Workflow with GIS
Real estate professionals often have multiple clients that they are regularly tracking land deals for, causing them to get pulled into a dozen different directions each day. Keeping track of projects while you’re on the road and talking to clients can be tedious, especially while you’re trying to stay ahead of a fast-paced market. Thankfully, there’s a better way to research and evaluate land to find the best fit for a client.
These professionals can use real estate software like GIS to evaluate and track both local and nationwide land deals quickly and easily. Additionally, they can stay up to date with active deals in order to narrow down choices to better steer clients to quality land.
geothinQ’s GIS Software for Real Estate
Utilizing GIS can streamline your daily workflow by providing you with the geographic data you need to visualize and evaluate land. geothinQ, for instance, is not a land listing management site but instead provides you with the data and tools you need all in one application, whether you’re on the go or in the office. This allows real estate professionals to:
- Find hidden pearls of unlisted land and properties in target areas that meet base-line criteria
- Easily evaluate sites by determining wetland coverage, elevation changes, distances to local amenities, and neighboring parcels
- Add daily statuses or comments to be shared live with your team in order to track properties and stay up to date with emerging patterns that align with buyer interest
- Create maps to easily answer client questions on the fly clients
- Draw or import basic site plans to help clients visualize site layouts
How it Works: Comparing Land Deals & Improving Workflows with geothinQ
By making it easier to evaluate and track land sites and deals, realtors and land brokers can ultimately improve client relationships. In fact, our customer, Chuck Mitchell at Parker Scott Properties, even shared, “geothinQ is a heck of a resource for anyone in commercial real estate. I no longer have to agonize over obtaining data, and clients tell me all the time that our information and packages are the best they’ve ever seen.”
So, here how it’s done in just three easy steps:
Step 1: Search our nationwide parcel data and look for land that meets your criteria and create a list of results. For example, search for vacant property between 200-500 acres within half a mile of an interstate or rail line.
Step 2: Evaluate each site using environmental layers such as wetlands, elevation, and flood zones, or use our buildable area tool to determine site suitability. Then use the Points of Interest layers to determine distances to and from amenities or commercial corridors.
Step 3: Use pins and bookmarks to track properties or leads. Leave notes and comments on properties and use pin groups to share live updates with your team. Utilize bookmarks to save maps and site plans to review with a client.
geothinQ ultimately allows real estate professionals like you to standardize communication across the board, collaborate with teams and ensure clients are kept up to date through every step of the land purchasing process. By exceeding expectations and providing better insights, your team can make sure clients are investing in successful projects.
