It’s a technology that is now being used right here in Reno’s real estate industry. It’s called QR codes (short for quick response codes). Local realtors are using the barcode-like technology to put the latest information at your finger tips.
Kristen Gill with Intero Real Estate says, “People are hungry for technology and information and it [QR codes] just provides everyone with more information, faster.”
Here’s how it works: smart phone users can use the camera feature on their phones to scan the code. The image is what holds information, including home prices and digital home tours.
Realtors tell KOLO 8 News Now that QR Codes are also good for our environment. Gill also says, “Today people are very concerned about being green so this does away with papers and fliers which a lot of times as agents we find just gets thrown away on the street.”
