Real Estate Mobile App for Android and the Future of the traditional Realtor

Let's face it, we as consumers have allowed google to affect nearly all aspects of our daily lives and continue to do so at an ever increasing rate. People cheerfully give google information that can create profiles for their spending and browsing habits. If you know were someone lived, where they went to school ,where they worked, when they bought there present house, what web sites they visited for personal, professional and online buying could you predict what price range neighbourhood ,and even to some degree even when someone would likely buy their next house, car or take their next vacation ?

In the possible near future scenario outlined above what would the role be for the realtor?

The standard reply might well be that people are always going to need someone to get there home on the syndication service to populate the listing on google maps (and or yahoo , msn bing etc )show the house to the prospective buyer, be the local expert, send them flowers after they move in etc.

But will the consumer need the traditional realtor in the near future?

Zillow or others offer sales information to the prospective buyer or seller so they can fill in the form for such offered by google or one of there affilates.Home seller than contacts realtor or other service provider to get there home listed on google maps complete with attached form to describe said home with link from tax assessment sales and or Zillow type provider to justify there price based on recent local sales.

Buyer prospect googles homes for sale google via local search takes buyer to homes in his area and likely price range based on buyers local search profile .If buyer is moving out of area no problem ,search adjustment done and noted with additional search\demographic  information supplied to google in the process .

Buyer can now call his Realtor or call the home buyer directly to view home.

Offer Time: Forms for offer can be filled in online with extensive help menu, google offers link to local lawyers to have an offer emailed to for his or her legal opinion.

Or buyer can call his agent.

Again google makes a wee bit from referrals or an ad sense ad from the web page as google ties in home inspecters, movers, home stagers etc.

How many of the traditional roles of the realtor can be automated or offered online? Even the customary sending of flowers from a realtor (which google could get a piece of) can be supplied or automated now or in the not too distant future.

Were does this leave the traditional realtor?
