|eXp World Holdings, Inc. (EXPI) Maintaining a Positive Outlook for the Real Estate Industry in the U.S.|
eXp World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: EXPI), the holding company for the agent-owned cloud-brokerage eXp Realty LLC, is maintaining a positive attitude toward the coming year. Most recently, RISMedia (http://dtn.fm/6JKt6) published a study highlighting the fact that more real estate executives are confident about their own local economies than about the world economy. Yet many real estate executives are concerned about risks posed by rising costs for traditional real estate, especially if the market should slump.
eXp World Holdings, Inc. is of the same opinion, pointing out that expenditures on brick and mortar facilities would remain fixed in the face of falling profits. According to EXPI: “Physical brick and mortar offices are of diminishing utility but represent a steady and escalating expense that erodes profits.”
EXPI has therefore used the emergence of the Internet as a force to drive advertising, leads, and sales, without the need for brick and mortar offices. By becoming a cloud-based brokerage and adopting a number of cloud-based technologies, EXPI has been able to not only cut out redundant staffing costs but also cut down on ancillary costs such as utility bills, rent, CAM, and furnishings, which are associated with brick and mortar locations.
As a result of the organization’s ability, from the beginning, to evolve with technological advancement and reduce costs by adopting a cloud-based environment, EXPI was voted second on this year’s Top Workplaces list among small-employer winners, according to NewsOK (http://dtn.fm/U0od2). In addition, Fundamental Research Corp. (http://dtn.fm/0a6S1), a research firm that initiated coverage of eXp World Holdings in April 2016, updated its analysis of the company, giving EXPI a price target of $6.78 per share compared to its previous objective of $4.06. The upward revision is based on EXPI’s record third quarter revenues, the change in its long term projections, and its healthy balance sheet.
