PAPERLESS REAL ESTATE

MY IPAD HAS ALLOWED ME TO SAVE TREES
  Paperless Realtor!

 

















I just love doing all my Real Estate forms on my iPad and then sending them off instantly to all parties, listing/selling agent, buyer/seller clients, lawyers, head office, etc, without the need to print everything out.
All my client files are kept on my iPad and backed up automatically on the Cloud, my Iphone and on my Laptop Computer.
They were talking about "the paperless office" when I bought my first Apple Computer for my Business back in the early 80's and we all quickly realized that the computer didn't eliminate paper but created a Hundred Times the Amount of Paper we were using in our business dealings.

NOW 34 YEARS LATER, it is FINALLY a REALITY.
NO MORE STACKS OF PAPER FILES FOR EVERY SALE OR LISTING!!    Whahoo!!!

The average Real Estate Purchase can produce more than 60 Pages of Paper, between the Offer, Counter-Offers and Acceptance.  This can now all be eliminated by signing and transfering these documents electronicly on my iPad. (**Some Forms cannot yet be signed electronically.  Subject to the Ontario Government completing the change to the ECA & REBBA regulations)

**NEW UPDATE - JULY 1, 2015

 

Electronic Signatures

 


e-signatureEffective July 1, 2015, real estate consumers will be allowed to execute or sign agreements of purchase and sale electronically. Previously, the Electronic Commerce Act, 2000 (ECA), excluded real estate agreements of purchase and sale from the legal protections of the Act. 

In 2013, the government passed the 2013 Ontario Budget. Thanks to the advocacy efforts of Ontario REALTORS®, the budget bill included an amendment to the ECA to remove the exclusion of real estate agreements of purchase and sale. Along with this change, the government also included a section stating that the amendment would only go into force upon proclamation. This section was included to allow the government to consult with stakeholders, including OREA. 

The Ministry of the Attorney General is responsible for the ECA. They led the consultations and approved the final proclamation of the amendment. Ontario REALTORS® applaud Minister Meilleur and her staff for her leadership on this issue.

I’m a REALTOR®. What does this mean for me? 

Electronic signatures will cut down transaction time, helping ensure that property buyers/sellers know sooner that they have successfully completed the transaction.

Currently, agreements of purchase and sale are often faxed, scanned and emailed numerous times over the course of a transaction. The process can be cumbersome and by the time the final version is signed, the agreement can be difficult to read. 
The technology allows agreements to be filled out on a computer or tablet, changes can be tracked and documents can be transmitted with ease. 

The technology used to support electronic agreements of purchase and sale is very secure, offering peace of mind to consumers.

Current Status

The new changes come into force July 1, 2015
