eBrokerHouse and San Diego Associaion of Realtors Announce Partnership
PR Log - Mar 01, 2013 - The Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR) and transaction management software provider eBrokerHouse, Inc. are pleased to announce a groundbreaking agreement, which makes the eBrokerHouse platform available to SDAR’s roughly 12,000 members. The service, which is now available to SDAR members, is fully integrated with SDAR’s MLS (SANDICOR) and will enhance the ability of SDAR members to manage their businesses and serve their clients.
eBrokerHouse CEO Alan Fenn said, “We are very excited about working with SDAR and helping their members become more organized and efficient and in turn more productive. Our platform will make a huge impact on improving the way SDAR agents manage their businesses and accept, manage and negotiate offers. One great benefit of the eBrokerHouse platform is that it creates a transparent offer process for all parties involved, removing the suspicion of any fraud or negligence that plagues many multiple offer situations in this current market. It also allows the list agent to receive offers direct from the MLS and easily manage multiple offers on multiple properties in one central location ”
The seamless integration of eBrokerHouse with SDAR’s MLS will allow SDAR member listing data to be automatically populated into their eBrokerHouse accounts, eliminating the need for SDAR agents to re-enter their listing data after it has already been entered into the MLS. This is integral for easy implementation and strong adoption.
“This is an outstanding partnership that will benefit consumers and our members,” said SDAR CEO Mike Mercurio. “eBrokerHouse is the industry leader in online offer submission technology, a feature which will be a revolutionary tool for our agents, and the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® is the trusted voice of San Diego real estate.”
Fenn added: “There is currently no standard or uniform offer submission process in the industry and we are hoping to change that. Fax and email offers have shortcomings that our platform addresses. Whether agents have 1 listing or 100 listings, our offer submission platform helps them stay organized and adds a great deal of transparency to the offer process for all parties involved. We are ecstatic to be the company that’s bringing this technology to the forefront of the real estate industry.”
In addition to its great organizational benefits, online offer submission allows listing agents to better control the offer process by having the option of requiring certain pieces of information or documents be submitted with the offer or requesting that the buyer gets pre-approved by a particular lender if necessary. This ensures complete offers are submitted and saves agents a lot of time and the hassle of chasing down missing paperwork.
Buyers’ agents also benefit from the offer submission platform, as they instantly notified that their offer was received and can view the status of their offer online at any time. This eliminates the need to continually follow up with listing agents to ask about the status of their offers. In addition, buyers’ agents can easily amend their offer terms and submit notes to the listing agent online.
Most SDAR members will be able to use the web-based eBrokerHouse platform absolutely free and higher volume list agents and teams will get a substantial discount on the paid version of the software platform.
