Keval Valambia COO, MCHI-CREDAI commented, “The integration of AI in the corporate real estate sector is a game-changer. With AI, we’re seeing incredible advancements in productivity, creativity, and efficiency. Virtual home tours, predictive analytics, and automated workflows are just a few examples of how AI is transforming the way we approach real estate. This technology not only helps in discovering undervalued properties but also streamlines the entire process, reducing paperwork and enhancing transparency.

Say goodbye to the uncertainty of investing with AI algorithms forecasting market trends, saving you from potential duds. For savvy buyers, AI is the key to discovering hidden gems – undervalued properties bursting with potential. No more dealing with dodgy channel partners or drowning in paperwork – AI-powered platforms are here to streamline the process, giving you more time to savour your new abode stress-free.

Vijay Jeswani, CEO, Vijay Properties said,“Although I believe we are in the early stages of AI entering the real estate world, I do feel it will have a considerable impact in the long run. With the kind of vast and precise data that AI can collate, the real estate industry will be able to accurately target the perfect customer for different projects and understand what the market needs in a much better way. Client communication and sales are areas where AI tools like chatbots and virtual assistants will come into play, making it easier for teams to filter out potential customers and then convert those leads. Quality and safety checks will also get more robust with regular and automated evaluations of structures. In the distant future, I can see Artificial Intelligence optimizing the entire process of construction, with reduced costs and faster timelines. All in all, the real estate players that harness the power of AI today, will surely reap the benefits of early adoption tomorrow”.
