Have an iPad? Want an iPad? Your Listing Presentations, Only Better (and Beyond)

By
Real Estate Agent with Adobe EchoSign

Using an iPad makes so much sense. It allows you to provide a compelling experience to your clients, connecting them in a rich and meaningful way to you and the homes they want. 

 

Even Sephora (the make-up and beauty chain) is introducing iPads in their stores, making it easier for customers to connect with their products. By connecting your clients directly to what you offer, you are closing the gap between the start of a conversation and a closing on a new home.

 

Here’s how an iPad can help you close more business and be more efficient:

 

-- Photos will appear more vivid and crisp

-- More compelling presentations with charts and graphs that are more impactful

-- Save money and decrease waste by avoiding print and its’ costs

 

iPads are also easy to transport, and being equipped with one can make you appear more professional and organized.

 

Adobe EchoSign for iPad

 

For us at EchoSign, our iPad app (available on the iTunes store) delivers these key benefits:

 

-- Send documents for signature from your document library or other sources

-- In-person signing from the app to present a document for face-to-face signing

-- Check status and audit trail of any document

-- Countersign and more without ever having to go to echosign.com

-- Push signed contracts into a contact database (CRM)

 

Are you using an iPad in your listing presentations or in other ways? If so, how are you using it and what do you like about it?

Still thinking about using the IPAD for listings. I actually had one and returned it. I bought a MacAir which I love.

Hi Beth, 

I did get the Echosign free trial and app, but haven't found it userfriendly. I'm now trying PDF Expert to see if it is any easier.

Does AR provide a space where we can compare products such as the various gadgets, etc ?   Seems like it would be very helpful.

Beth, sounds like there should be an iPad in my future!  Thanks for letting us know what Sephora is doing with the iPad.  Seems that it is now a staple in the lives of many Americans.

My listing presentation looks so much better when I use my i-pad. I have not fully embraced having clients sign contracts on it yet though.

Ok...I've bookmarked this page so I can try EchoSign on my brand new IPad.  Why didn't I just download the Ap?  Because my husband is borrowing my IPad while out of town.  Everyone loves it!

Although I haven't used my iPad for listings yet, I use it a lot when I am out doing other things to respond to leads, as well as with my buyers when we are looking at house.  No more printing out listings to take with...easy to also look up comps when we are in a house.
