Have You noticed the odd bar code boxes showing up on real estate signage and flyers in Northern Virginia lately? These are called QR codes, but what exactly are they and what do they do?
A QR code is very similar to a UPC bar code that is used in pretty much every store, from where you buy your groceries to where you shop for clothes. It gives detailed product information. In a matter of seconds, using your smartphone, you can get all the information you desire on the item at no cost and with less hassle.
With a QR code, you can read about the product, including a home for sale, using your smart phone easily and fuss free. You can efficiently scan the QR code found on our for sale sign riders and become familiar with the home on its dwellus.com individual property page without having to remember the address and running the chance of being unable to find it online. Our real estate website will also show you more homes and other resources available to find the perfect home for you in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, or Maryland.
As real estate agents, we enjoy QR codes because they allow us to “show” you the house BEFORE we are even contacted. On the property’s website, you can view pictures, videos, floorplans, community information and the status – everything you want to know – instantly. We know how frustrating it can be when you see a house you are interested in, and then have to wait several days to learn more information about it through a realtor. So in order to make sure you can find out what you need to know, when you want to know it, we create QR codes for every property we list!
So, please let us know what you think. Now that you are educated on what and why those little fuzzy boxes exist, do you love QR codes and find them useful, or would you rather see something else on a for sale sign? We truly value your opinion.
