But this? Nah, you haven't seen this.....have you? Lemme know!

It popped up in one of my favorite RE news sites and I was like whaaaat? So, I watched the cute little video. It appears it's a licensed agent sitting in her office instead of coming to the property.
Trust me, I've heard the nightmares from friends of mine trying to get a rental agent to show them homes...so this makes sense. But still, to me, lazy sense!
I don't believe a robotic agent will ever be able to replace a live agent to BUY a home. I believe there are way too many things that a Realtor needs to be educated/experienced on to help buyers (not renters), find their perfect home.
I read another article today about out of town buyers trying to find the right home to purchase before they move into their next city. That's a super big challenge. I recommend, and feel free to use an AI Robot agent for this, that you get a rental in the area you think you want to be in. A year later, you may change your mind!
At any rate, go ahead and use a less than diligent agent to help you find a rental...but be wary of one when you are ready to buy a home.
