Tools of the trade: Home designing software & more

by Jim Fox 07/14/2022

The modern real estate world is full of helpful technological advancements, including home designing software. A comprehensive home design software program allows homeowners, interior designers and architects to bring their home design plans to life in a more accurate, efficient and collaborative way.

But what are some other ways modern professionals and homeowners can use technology to improve their processes?

Here is a guide to some of the most common technology solutions used in real estate:

Home design software

Home design software is widely used by architects, builders, contractors and interior designers to create accurate models of their plans. It’s also simple to automatically scale and manipulate components of a floor plan to be as precise as possible with just a click.

Many modern design programs can provide 3D images of plans, while others are strictly for building highly technical schematics. If you have an interior designer, they may also use a specific program to create an accurate model of your home for living or selling purposes.

AR technology

AR, or augmented reality, is a type of technology popular among interior designers and homeowners trying to plan renovations. AR technology allows the user to experience changes in a live context. For example, with an AR design app, you can use your own digital photos of your living room and load them into the app to change colors, furniture placement and more.

Video conferencing

Video conferencing has exploded in popularity and necessity across all professions in the last decade. It’s especially helpful for real estate agents, interior designers and their clients to communicate when separated by distance.

It allows prospective buyers to tour a home from their couch and streamline many parts of a real estate transaction. Real estate professionals and other home design professionals can also interface with their clients across the world.
