Technology is changing the way we interact with the world when it comes to Hilton Head Real Estate. Here are just a few of the ways 2016 technology has changed the way buyers find Hilton Head properties.

Access All Hilton Head Properties On the Go

Your property search doesn’t stop while you’re out and about. Today’s technology has made it easier to access information when you need it. While you’re waiting in line at the store or idly scrolling through your phone, you can find articles about the home buying process on social media, see listings by accessing  the HHI MLS app on your iPhone or Android, or check commute times to the beach from the property you are considering.

Video Tours on Hilton Head Properties

Listing photos are incredibly helpful for home buyers who are looking online. But now, video tours make deciding on Hilton Head Properties even easier. Instagram, Facebook, and even Snapchat are just a few of the many platforms that you can use to find video tours.

“Smart” Home Features are Becoming a Priority

Remember earlier this year when the Pokémon Go mobile app was released? Proximity to a “Pokéstop” — a point of interest where players could collect items for the game — was listed as a feature in property descriptions, at least for a little while. The Pokémon Go craze is just one of many instances where technology is becoming a priority in and near homes that buyers are considering.
