Earlier this month, Brad Inman published “Who’s winning the real estate management arms race,” an opinion piece about the boom in technology that is focused on making the backend of transactions quicker and smoother for agents and their clients. In the article, he mentioned five companies: Dotloop, DocuSign, ZipForms, TransactionDesk and SkySlope.
- SkySlope has released Bundles, a new tool that streamlines the disclosure document review process.
- Bundles allows listing agents to create individual landing pages for each of their listings. On the page, the buyer's agent and buyer will be able to view MLS listing data as well as all disclosure documents.
- The buyer's agent does not need to be a SkySlope agent to view the documents.
- Each time the disclosure documents are viewed, SkySlope logs the action in the listing agent's dashboard. Furthermore, agents will receive a notification on the SkySlope mobile app.
Earlier this month, Brad Inman published “Who’s winning the real estate management arms race,” an opinion piece about the boom in technology that is focused on making the backend of transactions quicker and smoother for agents and their clients.
Out of the five companies, Inman said that although SkySlope is the most expensive option, the company has developed a reputation for being the best solution in the market due to strong iOS apps and an array of new features.
Today, SkySlope announced the release of another new feature. Called “Bundles,” it’s a tool that allows brokerages and their agents to increase their branding and track viewing data around the disclosure document review process.
SkySlope says Bundles will make the review process faster — no more waiting for emailed documents.
What does Bundles do?
Bundles, which is included with brokers’ standard SkySlope subscription, allows listing agents to create individual landing pages with unique URLs that features links to the listings’ disclosure documents.
Disclosure documents allow sellers to give potential buyers a complete picture of the home. In the documents, sellers must share any known property issues, such as mold and pests.
Buyer’s agents do not have to be a SkySlope client to access the landing page. When they go to the landing page, they will be prompted to enter their name, email address, and phone number.
From there, they will be able to view the property address and the accompanying disclosure documents. They’ll also be able to view the listing agent’s photo and contact information.
Each time the buyer’s agent or buyer logs into the landing page, SkySlope logs the action in the listing agent’s dashboard and sends a notification on SkySlope’s mobile app.
Historically, disclosure documents have been a pain point for sellers. SkySlope CEO Tyler Smith says Bundles will make agents more productive and enable them to give better service by streamlining this process.
“‘Bundles makes our brokers look good and their agents more productive — two things we strive for every day at SkySlope,” said Smith.
“We are invested in creating tools for our broker clients so they increase their market profile and delight their agents. Bundles is just one of many new features we’re rolling out in the next few months.”
SkySlope Marketing Director Jen Nettinga says SkySlope users will not see a price increase as the company rolls out its slew of new features.
