How AI Could Revolutionize the $25 Billion Property Management Industry

MarketJar

As artificial intelligence (AI) quickly transforms entire sectors, one $25 billion industry is lagging behind. In a world where you can do almost everything with the tap of a button on your phone —order food, call an Uber, make dinner reservations, preheat your oven and even buy a car—the property management industry is stuck in the past and still relying heavily on paper-based transactions, cheque payments, manual amenity bookings, home walk-throughs with clipboard checklists and more. The lack of innovation is not only inefficient, it can be very costly. It also doesn’t fit in with shifting industry dynamics. More and more people are opting to rent instead of buy property and a record number of rental homes and communities are being built across the nation to meet rising demand., Clearly, the need for a streamlined approach that connects the industry from construction to leasing to property management is essential. AI can tap into data on properties, communities, tenants, and markets to tailor tools for property management-specific tasks, like screening tenants, maintenance calendars, collecting rent payments, managing common areas and writing listings. The implementation of AI can also lead to new ways for property managers and developers to make money. According to McKinsey Global Institute, AI could create $110 billion to $180 billion in value for the industry. It could also help companies gain 10% or more in net operating income through more efficient operating models, tenant retention, stronger customer experience, smarter asset selection, and new revenue streams. The problem is, it’s not just about plugging in a technology solution and expecting miracles. Property management companies are quickly learning that applying AI effectively requires a careful approach. It's about aligning the technology closely with business goals to truly unlock its value. As AI development progresses, more tools are being developed that cater to the property management market. That’s where Tribe Property Technologies (TSXV:TRBE) (OTCQB:TRPTF) comes into play. Unlike other companies that offer piecemeal solutions, Tribe Property Technologies offers a full suite of tech-elevated property management solutions that cover everything from pre-construction to post-occupancy. One of these innovative solutions is an AI-powered reporting tool that provides property managers with enhanced reporting and benchmarking capabilities. Tribe simply needs to enter a building’s address and its historical maintenance documents, and its AI will generate a comprehensive report on the building’s past and present issues, insurance information, repair and maintenance expenses, and other details that can empower the condo boards, strata councils and community managers to better understand the operational and financial health of their building. The managers can then optimize forward-looking planning and work to reduce their property’s operational costs. Tribe Makes it Easy to Build, Manage, and Live in Residential Communities Tribe Property Technologies (TSXV:TRBE) (OTCQB:TRPTF) is offering one of the most comprehensive and innovative solutions to an industry in desperate need of change. Tribe offers a range of services and tools tailored to different stakeholders, including Stratas & HomeOwners Associations, (or HOAs), building developers, owners, landlords, and property managers. These tools include council voting tools, AI-powered building health reports, easy payment systems, and more, all aimed at improving efficiency and enhancing the overall living experience. This all-encompassing approach not only cuts customer acquisition costs and improves retention but also enables seamless integration of value-added products and services within the platform. By offering end-to-end solutions for all community living stakeholders, Tribe Property Technologies has established multiple revenue streams. With a focus on market penetration, Tribe has achieved rapid revenue growth and a leading market position, ranking #45 in Canada on the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ after achieving 361% revenue growth between 2019 and 2022. Backed by an experienced, multi-disciplinary management team, Tribe has a proven aggressive M&A strategy, with plans to expand in the Canadian and US markets. In December, Tribe Property Technologies completed the acquisition of Meritus Group Management, a property management company specializing in tech-driven solutions for condominium and multi-family residential communities. The acquisition expands Tribe’s footprint in Ontario, adding over 5,000 additional homes under its management, and boosts its bottom line. Tribe now manages over 45,000 homes across Canada, with expansion plans into the United States. But that’s just one of the deals in the company’s robust pipeline. Tribe Property has completed 12 acquisitions to date to improve profitability, with efforts focused on workflow optimizations, back-end service consolidation and other cost reduction initiatives. The company plans to continue its M&A growth strategy, focusing on targets that expand its technology and introduce Tribe to new geographical markets. Tribe 's focus on profitability has led to a 34% year-over-year improvement in Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2023. The company remains dedicated to delivering value to its shareholders and is committed to achieving significant milestones that will solidify its financial stability and maximize shareholder value.

HomeSphere Revolutionizes Home Product Management With AI-driven My HomeSphere App

HomeSphere

HomeSphere, the foremost platform connecting building product manufacturers to mid-market homebuilders, today launched My HomeSphereTM, an industry-changing mobile app and product suite designed to bring transparency and efficiency to home product management. Unlike any other product available today, the app benefits players along the homebuilding and buying supply chain, with distinct value to builders, manufacturers and homeowners. Visit HomeSphere at the NAHB International Builders’ Show in Booth W4051 in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. My HomeSphere: Transforming Home Product Information The My HomeSphere product suite empowers builders to use their smartphones to capture essential information about products in new homes while on-site, during installation. The data, encompassing appliances, HVAC systems, windows, doors, smart technology and more, syncs seamlessly with HomeSphere’s platform. HomeSphere’s proprietary AI automatically logs model and serial numbers, registers and tracks warranties in a single platform, and creates a comprehensive digital record of the home — with little effort from the builder or homeowner. “HomeSphere is the only company positioned to change data collection for the industry,” said HomeSphere CEO Greg Schwarzer. “We store the largest volume of U.S. home product information through our strong relationships with thousands of homebuilders and building product manufacturers, and we know what’s broken in the supply chain. My HomeSphere is the technology to fix it.” Changing the Landscape of Home Product Management My HomeSphere has the potential to redefine how building products are sourced, tracked and maintained, ushering in a new digital era for the home construction industry. Key Features of My HomeSphere: Creates a first-of-its-kind digital record of a home's products Enhances transparency within home product management Breaks down longstanding supply-chain silos in residential construction Addressing Industry Challenges Before My HomeSphere, builders installed products in homes without knowing how they performed, product manufacturers lacked clarity on product usage, and homeowners were left to fend for themselves, wading through a drawer full of manuals and registration cards. With My HomeSphere: Builders get a precise inventory of products installed in completed homes, simplifying after-sales issue resolution and increasing customer satisfaction. Homeowners gain “at their fingertips” information about the products in their homes so they can capitalize on valuable extended warranty opportunities, typically unclaimed. Building product manufacturers have — for the first time — clarity into where products are being used and by whom, facilitating customer relationships, mitigating risks and managing issues such as product defects or recalls. The Future of Home Product Management In the short term, My HomeSphere streamlines a fragmented supply chain burdened with outdated tracking methods. In the long term, HomeSphere anticipates further technological advancements to create an expansive network connecting the country’s 140 million homeowners with the manufacturers, contractors and installers that keep their homes running. “Each year in the U.S., millions of new homes are built, with an average of 15 branded products per home,” said HomeSphere Executive Chairman Glenn Renner. “No single company has ever captured this product data, yet it represents unprecedented value to homeowners, builders and product manufacturers. Our mission is to change that with a digital record of the U.S. housing stock accessible to millions of homeowners and the entire universe of builders, contractors and manufacturers. The My HomeSphere technology, paired with our experience, uniquely positioned us to execute this industry-changing vision.” About HomeSphere HomeSphere is a leading data platform connecting the residential construction industry. With 25 years of experience, HomeSphere aggregates data on products installed in over 250,000 homes annually, fostering transparency and efficiency throughout the process, from the product manufacturer to its end user, the homeowner. My HomeSphere represents a leap forward in home product management, revolutionizing how information is sourced, tracked and maintained.

Aterra Designs will offer its high-end residential lighting, electrical, and home automation design services, including Aterra Premium, Luminosity, and I3 Interactive Floor Plans, to HomeSphere’s network of 2,700+ builders who collectively construct more homes than the top five public builders combined. “Aterra Designs is the ideal partner as we continue to add products and services that greatly benefit the construction industry,” said HomeSphere President and CEO Greg Schwarzer. “This latest partnership demonstrates our commitment to unlock the unprecedented value of HomeSphere’s platform for more key constituents in homebuilding.” Single-family and multifamily builders use the HomeSphere platform to gain a competitive advantage. Aterra Designs aligns with that goal with a program that streamlines home lighting and electrical planning by connecting the home buyer, contractor and builder. Their proprietary software integrates with any trade or manufacturer, but HomeSphere builders have an exclusive opportunity to increase returns when they pair brands like Leviton Manufacturing and Progress Lighting with Aterra’s services. “Historically, our builders have doubled and sometimes even tripled their sales of lighting, electrical and home technologies. All this, along with receiving better documentation which reduces field errors,” said Aterra Designs President Paul Salmonson. “We look forward to extending this opportunity to HomeSphere builders so they can improve their profitability, connect to a new way of lighting their homes, and create a better customer experience.” Aterra Designs’ recently revamped Luminosity services offer a virtual electrical design tool with real-time lighting and pricing tied directly into the supply chain. Based on builder options, Luminosity generates orders and trade-specific information for installation, purchase orders, and bills of materials, saving homebuilders additional time and costs while increasing the beauty and efficiency of a new home. “We are continually adding valuable partnerships that enable our builders to construct better homes, improve margins and increase customer satisfaction,” said Schwarzer. “Aterra is a new offering, a new category and their services give our builders a new way to attract buyers. It's a win-win-win.” About HomeSphere Established in 1999, HomeSphere connects local and regional homebuilders to exclusive rebate offerings. HomeSphere’s builder network constructs and closes more than 250,000 new homes and units per year, making it the largest homebuilding group in the country by volume. Using HomeSphere-HQ, HomeSphere’s award-winning rebate management platform, builders capture incentives on completed homes, discover new products for their future projects and develop key relationships with the 80-plus manufacturers in HomeSphere’s preferred partner network.

Everlodge Gains Momentum in Real Estate Sector as Interest in Avalanche (AVAX) and Cardano (ADA) Wanes

Everlodge

As the crypto market shows signs of retracement from its recent bullish momentum, top crypto coins such as Avalanche (AVAX) and Cardano (ADA) have witnessed a noticeable slowdown in their price trajectories. However, the same cannot be said for Everlodge (ELDG). Following the completion of its successful presale campaign, Everlodge has been drawing increased attention, particularly with its ongoing listing on tier-1 exchanges. This listing has continued to fuel purchasing activities for the cryptocurrency, setting it apart from the declining interest in AVAX and ADA alike. Everlodge (ELDG) Makes Strides in the Real Estate Niche With Growing Enthusiasm Among Investors Everlodge (ELDG) is slowly making a name for itself in the fast-growing multi-trillion-dollar real estate industry. The project stands out by leveraging innovative technology to digitize real-world assets (RWAs) into non-fungible tokens (NFTs). This groundbreaking approach enables potential investors to conveniently and affordably access co-ownership opportunities, with a minimum investment threshold as low as $100. The underlying concept behind Everlodge is to introduce fractional ownership in diverse real estate assets, ranging from vacation homes to hotels and luxurious villas. By doing so, the project disrupts the traditional norms of real estate investment, making it more accessible and flexible for individuals to participate in this lucrative market. Following a successful presale that propelled the ELDG token from $0.01 to $0.029, Everlodge is now well-positioned for even more exponential growth, further supported by its recent listing on Uniswap. With ambitious plans to expand its market presence through additional listings on tier-1 exchanges, Everlodge emerges as one of the top crypto coins for investment, offering long-term profitability. Meanwhile, the team has taken measures to ensure market stability and safeguard investors' interests by committing to lock the team tokens for two years and the liquidity pool for eight years, effectively mitigating potential market volatility. These steps solidify Everlodge's appeal as a promising cryptocurrency worth considering. Beyond its core offering of fractional ownership, Everlodge presents a range of enticing features. These include a dedicated loan platform, a reward club, discounted rental fees on co-owned properties, trade discounts, a marketplace, and a launchpad for aspiring property developers. These additional features further underscore the overall value proposition of Everlodge, making it an attractive choice for investors seeking exposure to the real estate market in a novel yet dynamic way. Avalanche (AVAX) Faces Uncertain Price Outlook as Bullish Momentum Depreciates After recently trading above a weekly high of $43, Avalanche (AVAX) price has made a sharp turn towards the downside. Notably, AVAX token has lost almost all its weekly gains as it makes its way back to the weekly entry point around $38. Currently trading above $39, with a weekly price range of $38.7 to $39.5, the Avalanche token has managed to retain some positivity, with a modest increase of just over 1.50% over the past week. In contrast, earlier in the week, the AVAX token surged by as much as 21%, soaring from $35.8 to $43.0. However, given the recent decline in AVAX token price, it remains uncertain whether the token can maintain stability around its initial weekly entry point or if the ongoing dip will lead to further declines in the near future. Cardano (ADA) Faces Uncertainties As Price Fluctuation Looms Cardano (ADA) is also experiencing price fluctuations, although it has not suffered significant losses. The weekly price chart for ADA still shows a nearly 10% increase. However, when compared to its peak price of $0.61, which represented a gain of over 15% at the time, it is evident that ADA is struggling to maintain stability. Currently trading above the $0.58 level, with a weekly price range of $0.53 to $0.59, the ADA price demonstrates relative stability while continuing on a reversal trend. Looking ahead, Everlodge presents more promising prospects compared to several other top crypto coins as it prepares to list on additional top-tier exchanges. This not only provides potential investors with an edge against market fluctuations but also positions Everlodge in a more lucrative landscape compared to tokens like AVAX and ADA.
