How Virtual Transaction Rooms Can Benefit Your Real Estate Business

Virtual transaction rooms are online databases specifically designed to display the most sensitive information during high-stakes business deals. These systems are typically used often during mergers and purchases however, they can also be used to support due diligence procedures, legal conditions, financial audits and quit or real estate planning procedures.

If used correctly the software platforms allow everyone to access, review and exchange documents during a transaction without having to meet face-toface. There are a variety of software applications and tools that let companies carry out a transaction using a virtual data space (VDR) is one of the most effective options for sharing and storing documents with multiple users.

VDRs are widely used in various industries, but they’re especially beneficial for companies that need to share documents during high-stakes processes. Investment banking procedures such as IPOs, M&A and capital raising require massive sharing of information. The right virtual transaction space will keep all parties efficient and connected without divulging sensitive information.

VDRs are more flexible than traditional transaction rooms with regard to sharing and editing file formats. While most transaction rooms use PDFs and proprietary formats, VDRs are easily integrated with business productivity apps like Google Docs. This allows users to access their preferred applications within the secure virtual workspace.

This feature allows real estate agents to populate their standard real-estate forms with data from the VDR. This will reduce the number of steps they need to complete and helps keep everyone on track throughout the transaction. When combined with a great e-signature solution pre-integrated to the platform, such as DocuSign, real estate professionals and deal coordinators can easily invite sellers or buyers to review and sign documents in the VDR on virtually any device.
