Since the launch of the (Real Estate Agencies of South Africa) REASA panel attorney pages on Property24 earlier in the year, almost 500 conveyancing firms have registered to be included on the Find an attorney directory on Property24. In deciding why one should register, two aspects regarding clients and estate agencies are worth highlighting:
1. Unprecedented exposure
With over 800 000 unique visitors per month, you will enjoy unprecedented exposure to a target audience - buyers and sellers, your current and potentially future clients - needing a conveyancing attorney. To date, listed firms have had over 14 000 page views. To see how easy it is to find an attorney firm, click on this Find an attorney link and do a search by area, resulting in profiles and contact details of relevant firms.
2. Real time reporting and exposure to all Property24 Estate Agents
To quote Mandy MacFarlane, IT Business Analyst at Meumann White Attorneys:
“Electronic Transfer Instruct is working perfectly. We are finding it to be time saving and cost effective. There is no need for Agents to fax agreements and supporting docs to us anymore. The instruction imports directly into our software and the agreement and supporting documents are attached to the instruction and can be viewed and worked with immediately. Real time reporting is available to the Estate Agents as the system is updated as and when we tick the relevant milestones. “
And Lance Gouws, Principal Harcourts Cornerstone:
"As the principal of a busy Harcourts Franchise, I need easy access to the progress of my deals and wading through attorney weekly reports to resolve a query can be very time consuming. Electronic Instructions have changed the way our Franchise runs with the real-time progress updates of all of our transfers now accessible in one online place. The sales report highlighting my expected registration dates and commissions for all my deals has become key to managing the cash flow in my business."
In this example of such a customizable Estate Agent Report, we see how estate agents can view the status of any property transaction they are dealing with.
In addition to the aspects highlighted above other features include:
- Property data being verified by Prop ID.
- Documents attached to a matter are electronically received.
- Online collaboration between estate agents and attorneys.
Registration on the REASA panel and exposure on Property24 is available to all conveyancing attorneys for free, on the basis that they agree to accept Electronic Transfer Instructions (ETIs) to register from Property24/REASA estate agents at a cost of R119.00 per instruction.
