As real estate and title services move into the 21st century, they are adopting more and more cloud software technologies.  These solutions help optimize service, collect information, share data and radically improve operations. There are a number of new tools on the market that are being adopted. Listed below are the most influential software companies for Real Estate Agencies:

This is the leading real estate website in the US with over 70 million visitors per month.  It is the hub for all listings and is one of the best lead sources for any person working in buying, selling or service real estate.  The agents that purchase the "premier" designation will be the only ones shown besides their own listings.  That greatly improves the chances of being contacted by interested parties.

Title transfer and real estate agents need their clients to sign on the dotted line.  However, the internet has mostly replaced fax machines and people are rarely near a printer if they are out of the office.  DocuSign allows online signature that are legally binding.  That makes it convenient and simple for clients and agents.  It also stores the documents in an easy to manage location.

Going through an extensive lead or prospect list to find matches for a listing is time consuming and tedious.  Which potential buyer would be a match for witch listing?  Real scout is a tool that lets buyers insert their own preferences into a database.  When you acquire a new listing, simply upload the specifics of that particular property.  The tool then does the hard work of matching up every lead and automatically sending the info to the best fits.  In fact, the software provides an authentic email with the info that appears as a personal note.  This greatly improves the response and conversion rate.
