One day in the future humans may end up waging war against machines. Until that day comes, machines are bound to serve us and make our lives easier. There is much joy found in manual processes such as driving stick shift, developing film in a dark room, and listening to vinyl. However, there are plenty of reasons to leverage automation for your real estate business.

What automation can do for you though, is take care of the monotonous tasks like sending new properties to your real estate leads. Some systems can even take out the time of searching for properties that match their criteria and do it for you!
Time is money. For busy agents, it's worth hiring an assistant due to how busy they can get. With automation you can have the same benefits of hiring a real estate assistant, but without worrying about paying somebody else's salary.
