Writing an offer on a Lap Top - way to go!

By
Real Estate Services with InSite Virtual Tours

An agent that I create virtual tours for told me about his recent offer writing experience with a lap top and went through how he did it- very cool! Read on...

After the agent showed some buyers a home- they decided to write an offer. The agent opened his laptop and opened his agency forms. He typed in the offer info and then saved the forms as a .pdf on the desktop.

He then opened the forms in a program called PDF ANNOTATER. He used his lap top's stylus to highlight the areas on the 7 pages where the buyers needed to sign, then the buyers used the stylus to sign. They clicked on the down arrow on the page to flip from page to page. When the buyers finished, the agent used his wireless portable printer to print out a copy for them.

The agent then had the option of using his cell phone to connect to the internet (no wi-fi there yet) he could have e-mailed or faxed the offer right away...

Having a car apapter for your laptop is probably the most important tool a Realtor can have these days.  Laptops are useless with out them.

I truely love the tech toys, I have to admit that both my Brother and I are geeks in this area. Hate the idea of wasting time and driving back and forth to fax, and copy paper work up.

I try to have part of the form partial done if I already know full names and Address of the property. Then I save that and come back to it later.

 I keep a list of suggested clauses on fill also, so that we might review the proper verbage.

That's great.

I'm all for anything that makes our job less paper oriented.  At my office we have a scanner that converts all our documents into PDFs.  Makes things so much easier to organize.

we are getting closer to the paperless world, but it has been somewhat elusive so far.

Interesting entries, to be sure
