Real estate agents need an edge in a competitive housing market
As a good real estate agent, you need to provide your clients with the best home-buying transaction experience possible. When a client is serious about buying a house that you've worked hard to find, you want to beat the competition by getting that signed offer and earnest money to the listing agent fast.
Electronic earnest money payments are faster than paper checks
Earnest money often comes in the form of a personal check, a bank-issued check, or a certified check—each with cumbersome processing requirements. To collect a check for earnest money, along with the signed offer, you might travel to meet the client or they may come to your office. Either way, you’re wasting precious time, especially when another offer may be coming in on the same house. Some agents use check deposit apps, but these also require additional steps.
