We recently published this article as an agent product review; however, we feel that brokers can also benefit from Instanet's suite of services so we are republishing for you today. Of particular note is the BrokerFile Review Report on page 3.
RE Technology usually tries to keep product reviews simple, focusing only on a single product from a single company at one time. However, we are deviating from our usual routine for this review with very good reason: the suite of products from Instanet Solutions integrate so seamlessly that to try to cover each separately would be doing a disservice to readers and to the product. Still, it's important to note that each of the products mentioned in this review can be purchased separately, if you so choose.
To make this as easy to visualize and understand as possible, we will first walk through some of the most basic tasks related to a new transaction.
We'll begin in TransactionDesk, Instanet's transaction management solution. There are several ways to create a transaction:
- If you're a member of certain MLSs, you can use the one-click transaction option from within the MLS to automatically import all the information.
- You can also create a new transaction from within TransactionDesk by entering a transaction name, a data source, a property type, and an MLS or APN number. This method of creating a transaction will also automatically import information from your MLS or a tax service. Here's an example:
Whether you're using the one-click transaction option or creating a transaction manually, Instanet will automatically load the property information, the parties involved (including contact information, in many cases), and the forms necessary to complete the transaction.
