Real estate tech firm DealTap and the Ontario Real Estate Association have signed a licensing deal to offer the trade group’s more than 58,000 members access to its standard forms through DealTap’s new transaction management platform.
The cloud-based platform allows agents and their clients to fill out OREA’s electronic forms on a desktop computer, smartphone or tablet; track changes; and sign and transmit documents more easily and more securely than if they remained in their paper-based incarnations, according to the company.
Agents can also create offers and negotiate agreements electronically through the platform. The platform is also integrated with the multiple listing service, allowing agents to automatically import MLS information.
“Our team was focused on bringing the homebuying process into the digital age,” said Milan Baic, president of DealTap, in a statement. “Realtors, as well as homebuyers and sellers, wanted a more efficient experience.”
He said the Toronto-based company had been working on the platform for two years.
“The platform was developed in Toronto by working from the ground up with local Realtors,” Baic said. “The result is a truly collaborative digital experience that is intuitive, slick and engaging for all parties involved.”
