WEST PALM BEACH, FL – March 9, 2015 – As I read and article publish by Carey Pete from Paradise Post – ” Online home sales becoming a reality” -I wonder how much does the public really know or realize how much of the real estate purchase transaction already occurs online. As we have experience in the last decade, consumers start the home search process online, they can explore property listings, research communities, reach out to real estate agents and more online. As well as sign documents electronically and basically close in any location via mail away closings and digital signatures. This has been one of our main goals in our real estate brokerage, Firm Real Estate Group, LLC. dba FirmRE.biz. Since we open our doors two years ago.
A lot of our transaction get process completely online, from the search, to offer submissions and scheduling closing. Completely online. More sophisticated buyers and sellers want and prefer this method, since it saves them money and time.
As one of the companies behind the movement to buy and sell homes completely over the web FirmRE.biz, welcomes this new trend, and encourage home buyer & sellers to do so. Since technology has made it easier, more economical and safe.
As a property professional we aren’t fazed by the prospect of online home transactions, however we do feel more regulations regarding unlicensed brokerage or online companies, who advertise these services should be look at and hold accountable for unlicensed services offered. As well as home buyers and sellers, should make sure they are dealing with a license real estate brokerage and not an advertisement company like Zillow.com & Trulia, or other FSBO sites. Which business model is to sell user data to paid subscribers, but never take the time to screen or verify licensed requirements.
Research by the National Association of Realtors® shows that an overwhelming majority of homebuyers prefer agent representation, which can be achieved online, and maintain online through the whole buying or selling process. The key is making sure buyers and sellers know, they are dealing with a licensed real estate professional.
