If you’re in the real estate industry, you know how competitive the market is. According to the National Association of Realtors, there were over 3 million active real estate licenses in the United States as of 2020. That’s some serious competition. And given how volatile the housing market is, every single thing you can to do give yourself a competitive edge should be considered.
That means you need software, whether it be an off-the-shelf tool or one a real estate software development company might build for you. Fortunately, there are plenty of available pre-built tools and platforms that are ready to help take your business to the next level. Let’s take a look at three such tools.
The Zoho Real Estate CRM is purpose-built for real estate agencies of all sizes. The Zoho platform includes sales process management, property management, and automation for real estate agents, real estate developers, and brokerage firms.
Zoho Real Estate CRM features tools for omnichannel communication, built-in campaigns, project management, third-party integration, plenty of customization, and self-service portals. With a user-friendly interface, you can manage and track leads with campaigns, insights, surveys, and social media. And for those who prefer to automate tasks, Zoho allows you to automate tasks using predefined workflow rules based on territory, industry, potential deal size, or even in a round-robin fashion.
Pricing of Zoho Real Estate CRM starts at $14/usr/month and goes up to $52/user/month.

Wise Agent is one of the best all-in-one solutions for real estate on the market. Part of the reason for that is the platform integrates with nearly anything, such as Google Drive, Gmail, Google Calendar, Facebook, Twitter, Docusign, Evernote, Mailchimp, AWS, Virtudesk, and Zillow.
