Artificial intelligence reveals top 30 investor suburbs


A new research tool launched by buyer's agency network BuyersBuyers promises to take the guesswork out of suburb selection by using artificial intelligence to match a purchaser's budget with their best prospects for capital growth. BuyersBuyers co-founder Pete Wargent said the unique Where to Buy tool provided answers on which location and what sort of property would be the best choice for investors or owner-occupiers under a specific budget. "We've created a simple online process that improves the customer journey, and can help buyers to reduce time, cost and stress in their search," Mr Wargent said. The tool, which was developed in collaboration with RiskWise Property Research, assesses metrics including housing supply, median values, 12-month price growth and vacancy rates to determine whether the locations would provide risky or rewarding prospects for investment. RiskWise Property Research chief executive Doron Peleg said the new offering would complement a suite of research tools developed in conjunction with BuyersBuyers that were free for subscribers. "For example, for 2022, we ran a list of thirty suburbs which are expected to perform well for investors with a budget of up to around $1 million," Mr Peleg said.

6 ways AI is revolutionizing home search


As all agents, brokers, and home buyers know, searching for a home is a deeply personal process, and one of the most difficult challenges for buyers is narrowing down what they want. When a prospective buyer walks through a home or searches for one online, they are making hundreds of value judgments, often without ever consciously realizing them or expressing them to the real estate professional they are working with. Thankfully, artificial intelligence (AI) can now help bridge that gap and deliver a customized and personalized experience for consumers, without additional work by the agent or broker. For years, it has been easy to search for homes based on basic criteria like square footage, but what if a client wants something a little more specific, such as hardwood floors in all of the bedrooms, or homes with granite counters and white kitchen cabinets? That's where AI comes in.

The laws that govern affluent clients and large institutions are numerous, intricate and applied by highly sophisticated practitioners. In this section of society, rules proliferate, lawsuits abound, and the cost of legal services grows much faster than the cost of living. For the bulk of the population, however, the situation is very different. Access to the courts may be open in principle.

Zillow's home-buying debacle shows how hard it is to use AI to value real estate


In February, Zillow appeared so confident in its ability to use artificial intelligence to estimate the value of homes that it announced a new option: for certain homes, its so-called "Zestimate" would also represent an initial cash offer from the company to purchase the property. The move, touted by a company exec at the time as "an exciting advancement," was intended to streamline the process for homeowners considering selling to Zillow as part of its home-flipping business. Zillow promoted this option as a way to make it convenient to sell a home while minimizing interactions with others during the pandemic. Just eight months later, however, the company is shutting down that business, Zillow Offers, entirely. The decision, announced last week, marks a stunning defeat for Zillow.
