A New Class of Real Estate Professionals Emerges

Friday, September 07, 2012 by eFax Team

As the housing slump begins to turn around, traditional real estate professionals are transforming their business into a modern, mobile business.

According to a Holdcom infographic, approximately 50% of agents and 47% of brokers invested $500 - $2000 on technology this year. The infographic explains that in order to keep up with competition, one must keep up with technology – this holds true with real estate professionals as well.

With pages and pages of hand-signed documents necessary in the process of buying and selling a house, it’s no surprise that fax is a critical tool for relators and brokers.

An online fax service enables real estate professionals to send and receive mission critical documents wherever they are – a showing, their office, vacation, or an open house. With options to fax from multiple devices including laptops, tablets, and smartphones, online fax is transforming the way real estate professionals work.

“I save gas, time, and since I only use recycled electrons, I’m reducing my carbon footprint which helps the environment,” said New England-based independent real estage agent Jeff Annis. “I noticed in my last two case files I had not printed any of the contract forms because I handled them all electronically and they were already saved by eFax in my smartphone for easy access.”
