Stops’ technology can help real estate communities with a private, digital solution for locking high-value data to locations.

Most Real Estate developers, agencies and property owners still largely manage their real estate files using old-school methods, which is costly (printing, storage) and ultimately not accessible (and thus not transparent) to the end customer.

If digitized, at best, they maintain the property’s data (blueprints, warranties) regarding the property in a basic folder, cloud or thumb drive that is passed on to the new property owner. Even if it remains in a digital environment, it gets no context and provides little value to the owner.

Stops has developed proprietary geo-fencing technology that allows real estate professionals to fully manage all of their properties, including the ability to:

  • Geofence the property and add smart location-based activities, including warnings, micro-locations and labels to different areas of the property.
  • Lock high-value files within the location, so that they are accessible only on location and never get lost. For example, blueprints and warranties can be discovered on location only by the owner of the location (or anyone they share with).
  • Get context on what’s publicly nearby the property.
  • Receive geo-alerts for their properties for acclimate weather conditions, traffic, major headlines, new businesses, etc.
  • Report any harmful data that may have been posted against the property that should be delisted.

But not every community is like the forward-thinking On Top of the World communities of Florida, which embraces responsible technology.

Stops has been piloting with companies like On Top of the World to ensure that developers can:

  1. easily import and manage their thousands of public addresses on the Stops platform.
  2. modify the geofences for each location and utilize this data for private/internal use and/or for sharing with the home owner.
  3. attach anything to the location and provide the file with micro coordinates for the file. For example, the blueprints or warranties could be placed in the home’s office, a warranty may be placed over the deck, the pool or the roof or kitchen area.  Also, underground power lines and septic can be marked to remind the owner where these features are located. Digital warning signs can be posted on power polls, lines and trees.
  4. share access with the current property owner, and further allowing them to add their own private or public data to the property. For example, When the owner or contractor or anyone with an authorized token appears at the property, all of the digital files shared with them for the property appear automatically, without the need for Search.
  5. Make certain data only visible from authorized devices within the geofence of the property.
