Searching for single documents and pictures outside a loop can create a frustrating experience for both agents and customers. This handy mobile-first tool, however, offers an easy way to streamline all your documents, pictures and contracts in one place.
Driving to a client’s house and taking pictures of needed repairs or improvements is so 2019. Not to mention it’s a major time suck that can be easily remedied with the dotloop mobile app.
If you have images that should accompany your transaction, this trick works for several scenarios. While walking through the house with a buyer, take pictures of anything they may have questioned. Later, you can bring those images into the loop for your record and future action.
Similarly, if there are items within the house that the buyer or seller wants to confirm is or is not part of the sale, such as a basketball hoop or television mount, take a picture and load it to the loop to share and clarify.
Post-inspection, if your seller has made repairs and the buyers require visual confirmation, have your seller text you a picture of the repair. You can save that image to your camera roll and then upload it into the loop. In all cases, you can easily add pictures to the loop, all using dotloop’s mobile Document Scanner.
To add pictures from your phone to a loop:
