100% realtors will be replaced. People look for honesty in a transaction. With the ridiculous amount of money going the realtors way if a sale goes through...yeah they would lie about items. Ai or robots deal with facts, no BS.
Why do you think realtors are collectively trying to phase out home inspectors in Canada?
They want that sale at any cost!
Now if there was a home inspection done before every sale by a properly trained and licensed Home Inspector pretty much guaranteed a monkey could sell the house. No disrespect as I have encountered several good agents over the years. Just the facts!

Homes can be sold online, the pricing can be fixed based on the fair market price value(AI can be built around it) and showing can be scheduled online as well between the sellers and buyers.

There are certain people that perceive real estate from a clinical and business-like standpoint. There will always be the people that need their hand held, and robots just can't replace that. The amount of brokers will decrease, but eliminate? I think not.

People don't buy if a person does walk them around and give them the personal touch.

Real estate is highly emotional. Robots can't handle cranky buyers and sellers.
