If you took the time to really think, we’re sure you could come up with a list of so many reasons why going paperless is better. Better for the environment. Better for your budget. And most importantly, better for your clients and business.
How is it possible, though? With the amount of forms exchanged during a transaction, you may be thinking that there’s no way you can take your business the all-digital route. We have a solution – an iPad.
The iPad be a typical business tool for the technology-savvy agents out there. It’s great for reading PDF’s, it’s easy to use, clear, and overall has multiple benefits. Beyond this we’d like to introduce PDF Expert 5 by Readdle. It’s a fantastic iPad app that allows you to organize and keep track of all files with its Dropbox and iCloud compatibility feature. All this means there are no more excuses and no more, “I’ll send it back when I get to the office.”
There are a couple of ways that you can use PDF Expert with your iPad to simplify things:
- When showing homes you can create a PDF of the listings to be shown that day and notate them using PDF Expert. Then you can save that file in the client’s folder on Dropbox with the date in the title so that you can easily remember what homes you showed to that client. This is a great way to condense a desk full of annotated MLS sheets.
- Other great aspects to PDF Expert are the editing options. You can save several different versions of typical Agreements of Purchase & Sale that you use frequently (Freehold, Condo, Freehold with a pool, etc.) and when your client says they want to submit an offer, you can quickly pull up the blank document on your iPad, fill in the missing elements (price, closing date, etc.) and add or delete clauses as needed. Once you’re finished editing the document, have your client sign it and send it to the listing agent all from your iPad!
