This is the sixth post in a series on using Technology in Real Estate.  Please click here to see other posts about technology.  

Being connected online is one of the main avenues for staying in touch with clients and, especially, helping new clients to become familiar with me.

I have presence on  Facebook, LinkedIn, my blog (you found it!), my personal web site, and as I like to eat food (a lot), I have my own profile on Urban Spoon.  By having this presence and more, I can inform clients and customers easily about new home buying opportunities in metro Atlanta, what it is like to live in metro Atlanta, and how to sell a home in metro Atlanta.

This is the third post in a blog series I am doing on real estate technology and how I use it to help my buyer and seller clients. Please click here to see more posts on how I use technology in real estate in metro Atlanta.

DocuSign is a tool I am now using to enable my seller and buyer clients and the other party and other agent to use for signature purposes.

Buyers and sellers can review, approve and sign a legal document with just a touch from either your phone, IPAD, or computer and it is a secure and legal signature.

There are 10 different unique signatures that you choose from to sign the document within the DocuSign program.    Or you can choose to write a signature and upload that signature.

With just a click you can approve a contract making the transaction move forward much easier than having to find fax machines, scan things in, etc.

Below is a video of a recent client who used the DocuSign tool I provided while she was away on her ski trip….we were able to finalize the sale of her house in Smyrna as well as the purchase of their new home while she was away.

I was recently having a discussion with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty president David Boehmig regarding the Atlanta real estate market forecast for 2011.   It seems like I have been getting a lot of questions about the real estate outlook for 2011 in Atlanta, and whether or not now is a good time to buy a home.

As we talked, we reviewed the following graph that was used at the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) 2010 convention:

So the point of maximum buying opportunity is somewhere between “despondency” and “depression”…..hmmmm…..not too uplifting.

Then we looked at this chart regarding the five-year history of real estate in Georgia and the forecast for real estate in Georgia for 2011 from Forecast-Chart.com:

Hey wait….does this chart mimic the first one from NAR? We were definitely in a euphoric state in real estate in 2006, especially in North Fulton and Buckhead in Atlanta.

While I will note that the downward trend over the past four years has been heartbreaking to say the least, I’m very interested in the parallel of this chart and the other….that we may be approaching that (oxymoronic) sweet spot between despondency and depression. The Sweet Spot being the Maximum Buying Opportunity!

With interest rates still at incredibly low rates, and housing prices stabilizing, and approaching the Maximum Buying Opportunity, I am ready for buyers to buy some homes in Atlanta!

If you are ready to buy a home in metro Atlanta or know someone who is, please let me know.
