The real estate industry has always been a dynamic one, as it is a field that is greatly impacted by the changing needs of the consumers around it. Recently, fast-changing technologies have been a huge driving force behind real estate business adaptations.

The Urban Land Institute recently brought together a group of technology and real estate thought leaders to discuss which innovations they predict will have the biggest impact on the real estate industry in the next few years.

One of the biggest takeaways of their findings was that both consumers and businesses are looking for ways to make real estate more efficient, more adaptable, and easier to share. Realtor Magazine Online does a great job of summarizing the key takeaways of the meeting in their coverage of the discussion here.
