4 Reasons Our Agents Love Being Paperless
Ever since we implemented web-based software for real estate transaction management at Exit Kingdom Realty, our agents have been able to do things that weren’t possible with a paper-filled office. Going paperless wasn’t easy at first, but it sure was worth the effort. And now our agents can’t imagine working at an office without an online solution to transaction management.
Here are a few things our agents like about our paperless office:
Access To Documents Anywhere
Every agent has shown up to a closing without an important document, slowing things down while they drive back to the office or wait for an incoming fax. But with online access to all their transaction documents, our agents (and their clients) can show up to closing with a laptop and be confident they have all the documents they need.
Less Time Spent On Organization
Managing stacks of papers is hard work! Thankfully, our agents can sign into our paperless system and search for a file by address, MLS ID, and more. Once they find a transaction, they can add documents, make notes, and send important paperwork to clients. Agents love that they don’t have to spend hours sorting and filing. And their clients love how seemingly organized they are!
Fewer Lost Documents
Documents can be submitted to our paperless system by emailing, scanning, or direct upload. Our agents can add documents from a clients’ house or anywhere else they might find themselves. Because it’s so easy to get documents, documents are less likely to go missing. And fewer lost documents means less stress for everyone.
Easy Sharing With Third-Parties
All the documents in our paperless system can be emailed out to third parties like title companies, lenders, and clients. Perhaps a buyer wants to take another look at the contract late at night?

There are many good reasons to work with a qualified real estate professional. Especially a trained professional who has earned the Certified Buyer’s Representative (CBR) or Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) designation, representing a homebuyer’s best interest. When buyers begin their search for a new home, they will usually call off a sign or an advertisement. Many home buyers believe a Realtor with whom they are working with sometimes on a daily basis represents them and their interests. Without proper disclosure, this is definitely is not the case. A Realtor unless specifically disclosed otherwise, represents the seller in a transaction for the sale of a home. It is the Realtor’s fiduciary duties, where their loyalty lies, to protect the seller’s best interest at all times; not the buyers.
Without a Buyer’s Agent, "your" Agent represents, and owes loyalty to, each and every seller of properties you are viewing. Any information you reveal to the Agent must be conveyed back to the sellers. It is important to understand that if the Agent represents the seller,they cannot reveal certain things to you, as the buyer. The reason for selling, unless the seller specifically authorizes it, any concessions in price or otherwise that the seller may be willing to give up, any conversations that the seller and the Agent may have had and any information that could be unfavorable to the seller, or give you, the buyer, an advantage. This would include a Comparable Market Analysis that could put the seller at a disadvantage.
Buyer Agency changes this. If a Buyer's Agency agreement is produced between you and the Agent, it is you rather than the seller, who has the representation from the Agent with whom you are working with. If you are being represented by a Buyer's Agent, the potential benefits are substantial. Your Agent can develop a Comparable Market Analysis, revealing at what price similar properties in the area have been listed for and sold for.
