At least you can if it’s a home listed by Sage Real Estate, a Toronto firm that might be the first in the country to use quick-response (QR) codes on their lawn signs.
“Now, for the person driving by who wants to know more about the property, they don’t have to wait and call someone, leave a message, then wait again to hear back. They can scan the QR code with their phone and get all the information they need just standing there,” says Evan Sage, the company’s vice-president.
