When you meet your clients and take them out too see properties, they see one side of real estate – you could say, the sexier side. In all reality, that represents only one aspect of your job as there is the whole back office piece that everyone doesn’t get to see.
Landing a client, or making a sale, leads to a number of agreements, searches, research and more. The faster and more efficiently you can access the information you need to get your work done, the better.
There are some searches or materials you will need all the time and then some on an as-needed basis, so it can be hard to keep on top of innovations that have made it much easier to obtain what you need.
Yes: we are talking Parcel Registers*, surveys and status certificates! While Parcel Registers* have been available online for at least the past 10 years, status certificates and condo certificates have not.
What a pain status certificates have been to obtain historically. Requesting them, paying for them, waiting for them and then retrieving them. Surveys too – you have to call a surveyor, make an appointment, have the survey conducted, waiting for it… not to mention the cost!
Remember those innovations we started this blog talking about? Luckily now, Parcel Registers*, condo certificates and surveys are not only available online, they are also all in the same place!
When logged into GeoWarehouse you can request a survey, condo certificate or Parcel Register* in the GeoWarehouse store. Once your purchase is completed, the requested search or document is available for you electronically.
