There's new technology to allow approved buyers to tour a property in the United States without an estate agent being present.

Kickstarter has helped launch Toor, a bluetooth-connected device dubbed the 'smartest lockbox ever'.

Toor, the fancy new lockbox is an app-animated key storage device and communication tool.

It shares notes, notifications, showing instructions and alerts with buyers and sellers.

The homes can be shown without any representative from a real estate agency present.

Toor has partnered with an identification verification company to help ensure the safety of the property, customers and the agents.

The method has been tried before by ZipTours, however the industry didn't react well to the idea. They now only support video tours of its own listings.

The Toor app can request a nearby Toor-associated agent to assist in the showing of the property should it ever become required that a licensed agent be present.
