Today real estate business is a hugely complex area. Many of modern construction projects cost millions of dollars and employ dozens, and hundreds of people. Real estate business requires the collaboration of a myriad of professionals, from architects and designers to workers and financiers. The bigger projects are tremendously more complex requiring governmental and environmental clearance, priority electricity and water connection, a ready worker’s market and a whole army of professionals.
As with other fields, computers have come to the rescue of this complex business as well. Real estate software is no single software or software suite; rather it is a group of related software solutions that help in various aspects of work related to real estate. Some of them are general software solutions that are used in this business, and some have been custom made for real estate.
The range of software solutions can be wide, including foreclosure investment business software, property analysis software, construction accounting software, job cost management software, construction payroll software, virtual tour and panorama software, as well as all types of engineering and designing software. While it is true that vast architectural marvels have been made in yesteryears without such software help, the present day complexity of construction can only be handled by some automated systems. Unfortunately, due to lack of information regarding such systems, much of this work is being done without them.
This section attempts to inform you about the various software solutions available, where to find and buy them, and how to work on and through them.
