What is PropTech?
PropTech, short for property technology, is a relatively new term used to describe the intersection of real estate and technology. It's a rapidly growing field, characterized by a wave of startups and established companies that are leveraging technology to disrupt and innovate the real estate industry. PropTech encompasses both residential and commercial real estate, including tools and platforms for buying and selling properties, managing property portfolios, and enhancing the overall customer experience.
PropTech is often confused with CREtech, but the two are not interchangeable. CREtech focuses specifically on technology solutions for commercial or corporate real estate, while PropTech covers both residential and commercial real estate. PropTech is rapidly transforming the real estate industry, creating new opportunities for investors, property managers, and real estate professionals to improve their operations and meet the evolving needs of customers.
