5 technologies revolutionizing the real estate sector

Posted by media on May 24, 2016 at 5:30 PM

Traditionally, the real estate industry was always characterized in people’s minds as resisting any sort of innovation. This however is a thing of the past, as two developments altered the industry to irreversible effect: firstly, the bursting of the housing bubble in late 2007, toppling the belief that real estate could never lose its value; secondly, the transformation of consumer habits and expectations within the sector, that we have already tackled in a previous post.

These two factors together have finally driven the property sector to ditch its traditional passivity, bringing more value to its assets and operations beyond mere continuous revaluation.

In this post, we review the five sources of innovation that have already established a new competitive advantage for a sector that is finally launching its own technological revolution.

Interview with Jaime Lacasa, founding partner of real estate company ELIX

Posted by media on May 19, 2016 at 9:00 AM

Founded in 2003 by Jorge Benjumea and Jaime Lacasa, ELIX is a real estate agency that was born with the aim to kickstart a new sector trend through the purchasing and restoring of old buildings in the centre of Barcelona and Madrid to create charming living spaces.

Business has not always been plain-sailing for ELIX. The bursting of the housing bubble in 2007 led to a complete decimation of the real estate sector, with only a few of the larger, traditional companies surviving along with a few smaller promoters who, like ELIX, did not get dragged into debt.

Curiously, it was in 200, at the time of the first iPhone launch, that the seed was planted for the industry’s newest challenge and opportunity - the digital consumer - who's buying habits were and are bound to the use of new technologies.

To know how ELIX perceives and responds to this new customer, as well as to find out how the company values today’s commercial climate, we interviewed ELIX founder, Jaime Lacasa.
