The process of providing real estate information about a property, a central component of purchasing homeowner’s insurance, is a lengthy, complicated procedure that has a large capacity for error on the part of the customer providing the information. Because of advances in information technology, including the storage, processing, and presentation of information of all kinds, this process can be handled in ways that are faster, less prone to error, and easier to use in the absence of specialist knowledge. The goal of this project was to explore these technological advances in order to identify strategies that could be used to achieve the aforementioned improvements in such a way that a casual user of the app could handle the process with little difficulty and with reliable results.
