New Site Aims to Let You Close on a House Online

Realty Plus Online Inc., a pioneer
in paperless transaction technology for the real estate industry, said it
will launch CloseYourDeal.com,
a secure site that automates the entire real estate transaction over the
Internet, including the closing.


Realty Plus Online said it will deliver “the only system that brings all
closing parties in a transaction together, to open, process, and close a deal
online.”


Realty Plus Online also announced partnerships with three industry players
that have agreed to adopt and integrate with CloseYourDeal.com.


Digital
Solutions Inc., a developer of escrow and title insurance software, and a Cal
Land, a Marin County, CA title insurance and escrow provider, have both
agreed to integrate CloseYourDeal.com with their internal systems. In
addition, a la mode inc., a provider of appraisal software and services, has
also agreed to adopt CloseYourDeal.com as part of its solutions.


“With advances in e-commerce, paperless transactions have now become a
reality,” said Kelly Pantis, president and chief executive officer of Realty Plus Online.
“CloseYourDeal.com will revolutionize the way the real estate industry does
business.”


The company said CloseYourDeal.com allows real estate agents to place orders
online and enter information on their deals directly from their MLS system.
Users can instantly link to and communicate with all closing partners online,
with access to deals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Agents can
automatically place orders for other required services, including hazard
reports and pest inspections, as the transaction is opened.


CloseYourDeal.com also can automatically notify you of critical dates and
milestones, and allows you to request and transmit documents electronically.


CloseYourDeal.com is currently being implemented as a pilot program with
local area real estate agents, title companies, and mortgage companies, and
will roll out nationally this summer, the company said.


Realty Plus Online’s flagship product is Fusion MLS, an Internet-based
Multiple Listing Service system.
