Scottsdale, AZ (PressExposure) May 28, 2009 -- Larry Dignan designated broker of, For Sale In Arizona has built what many believe is the âWaveâ of the future for real estate companies. Dignan explains, âMost agents do not utilize the bricks and mortar many brokerages offer, and agree that their productivity increases when working from a home officeâ. âWorking out of a brick-and-mortar office really is a thing of the past,â "Aside from productivity, the impact on the environment is lessened when agents donât make that daily drive to the office. Dignan states,â The carbon footprint of a real estate office is huge when you consider the utilities needed to run the HVAC systems, phone systems, lights and office equipment alone.â
For years there have been studies and pilot programs done evaluating the âVirtual Officeâ, and with the current changes in markets throughout the nation Dignan feels his timing couldnât better. Between the rising cost of gas and the concern over effects on the environment, a true paperless virtual model makes more sense than ever. âThe Realtors are who are really reaping the benefitâ Dignan states and he is able to pass on the savings to the agents with larger commissions.
âItâs a real plusâ, Dignan noted. âAll of our agents have online access to all of their documents 24/7 from their home offices.â Rather than having thousands upon thousands of transactions documented on paper, they file all of the items electronically, saving a small forest or two in the process. For Sale In Arizona is utilizing the online transaction management system offered through the state association which has been approved through the Arizona Department of Real Estate. The system also allows clients, title companies, inspectors and mortgage professionals to access documents on demand from anywhere. Dignan explains,â With the ability to complete an entire transaction virtually paperless, the cost and environmental impact alone are tremendous!â
Dignan further explains âThe changes in technology are transforming business models, and the real estate industry is one that is going through a real alteration at this time.â The wave of the future is here, and adapting now will ensure your business will not be pulled out by the tide.â âBrick and Mortar is moving toâ Click and Mortarâ, and soon entirely âVirtual.â For Sale In Arizona will become the model of the future for agents that desire to retain more of their commissions while being more environmentally friendly.
