This technology allows consumers to access a property fact sheet in less
than a second with their smartphone
MONTREAL, Nov. 16 /CNW Telbec/ - Royal LePage Real Estate Services are
proud to announce that the properties for sale on the Réseau Longpré
Lamirande will now have a QR code. Smartphone users of the Magog and
Memphrémagog regions will be able to instantly access fact sheets of
properties for sale by holding their device in front of the code
appearing on the sign. The Longpré Lamirande Network is one of the
first brokerage houses in Canada to implement this technology which
will greatly simplify the viewing of property fact sheets.
QR codes (for Quick Response) may store text, phone numbers, SMS or
various other types of data that can be identified by smartphones. Once
the device has been placed in front of the code, it directs the user
toward the URL address which allows the display of any type of online
content, such as forms, photos, videos, blogs or Facebook pages. 1
"Réseau Longpré Lamirande is always looking for technological
innovations to make life easier for potential buyers and sellers. Most
people start by conducting an online search to identify the properties
they are interested in. When they get to the location, buyers often
notice other properties of interest. Now, as soon as buyers spot a
house they like, they will be able to view details about the property
immediately without having to write down the reference number, the name
of the street or the URL address," explains Christian Longpré,
Certified Real Estate Broker, Royal LePage Au Sommet, Magog.
"It is an extremely useful tool for real estate brokers. For instance,
it provides the ability to find specific statistical data related to
the number of visits to a property fact sheet. Also, QR codes are
simple to create and manage. The main advantage for brokers is to be
able to reach the client, wherever he is. Whether it is on the Web,
Twitter, Facebook, smartphones and now through QR codes," adds Mr.
"Technology is an integral part of our lives and smartphones are common
place in Quebec. Réseau Longpré Lamirande has shown a sense of vision
and innovation by implementing QR codes, and Royal LePage is
encouraging other brokers to do the same. This is a tool with many
benefits both for real estate brokers and for their client base,"
highlights Dominic St-Pierre, Director for the Quebec region,
Royal LePage Real Estate Services.
