Local Real Estate Agency Windermere have done a wonderful job using Tag for their listed homes. Above you can see that a sign in front of a home for sale has a Tag on it. This is great for so many reasons.
1- Pamphlets can get wet or blown away
2- Saves paper
3- The interested person now has the house information on their mobile phone (less chance of losing the info)
4- People instantly have access to more information about the home including photos and other media
Windermere says the Tag us is in the pilot stage right now, with most of these Tags being used in Seattle. If you scan the tag you can get all of the home's listing details such as price, bedrooms/bathrooms, pictures and contact info. Windermere says it also plans to use tags in its print media advertising, which will link to the company's website.
"The intent is to engage our customers with instant, interactive information. We will closely watch the activity generated during the pilot period and come up with additional ways to integrate Tag into our business practice." - John Jones, Chief Operations Officer at Windermere
