Agents can use this app to make the best use of their advertisements by following up on the leads in the right ways. 

TruCheck ™

Users can’t visit a property physically and verify the claims made by property developers and agents. This is where TruCheck comes into effect. Agents and brokers have to submit authentic photos for approval and TruCheck validates these photos after meticulous inspection with the help of AI-enabled services. After checking, TruCheck puts a time-stamp on that specific property and informs users about its availability. This feature has successfully improved the confidence level of users to a great extent. 

SmartLeads ™

This is a revolutionary addition to the existing features of the Bayut mobile app. Now agents can analyze the leads they get and understand the user behavior of them. They can understand customers’ needs better than ever before and access information about their location preferences, budget, and the type of property they’re looking for.
