You may have noticed that we are among the first local estate agents actively to use QR (Quick Response) codes, and with good reason. A QR code is the increasingly familiar black and white square matrix you see alongside our property adverts and window displays.
As progressive estate agents we have always been keen to embrace technological innovation, but not for its own sake. QR codes are a great example of smart technology being used to the tremendous advantage of both our buyers and sellers.
QR codes are used by the people with smartphones such as iPhone, HTC, Samsung, Sony etc. Smartphones are predicted to outnumber non-smartphones by the end of next year. You simply point your phone’s camera at the QR code (which can be the size of a bus or a button) and your phone’s web browser opens up immediately populated with full details of the property in question – just like a website. In fact a QR code bridges the gap between the real world and the digital one.
So anyone passing by our offices, or seeing an ad for your property in the paper can simply scan the code and immediately have access to the full range of photos, floorplans etc and even request their viewing via their phone within seconds. That’s why it’s called Quick Response and it’s just one of the ways we aim to make house buying/selling a pleasure. Some of the others that QR could stand for in our case are Quantifiable Results, Quality Reigns, Quietly Reassuring, and Quintessentially Residential.
