Over $24 billion in Proptech money entered real estate in 2020. It is clear that many outsiders are looking to take over the real estate industry.

Today, there is NO reason to make your potential new Association member or MLS subscriber use a paper-based application they have to print out, fill out and then fax back, or worse yet, make a potential new customer drop off their application at your office anymore.
