How would you like to turn your real estate business into a paperless office? It sounds fascinating, but is it sensible? Go with the wave, consider the benefits.

The visible advantage of using Cloud Based Business is that you store information online using any one of the many "cloud-based" platforms available.

Cloud Based platform is your outsourced office on the web where you store your files. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) says cloud computing is comprised of "on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources with minimal management effort".  What it means for you is that with only minimal or no cost to you, you can access your stored files from anywhere and they're backed up automatically.

You probably don't even realize it, but if you have uploaded a photo to your social media site (Facebook, for example) or attached a document to your e-mail, you have already begun working in the cloud. It is nothing more than moving your documents from your computer to the Internet, where they can be accessed no matter where you are as long as you have access via a password.

Manny internet software like Google Apps, Microsoft Live, Dropbox, Rackspace, and Box.net that allow you to create an account and store files. As real estate agent, you will find that one of the benefits is being able to share documents with others in order to speed up the process. With the ability to access files from internet no matter where you are, you complete more transactions faster.

I use Dropbox and Evernote all the time. No more notes on pieces of paper that I lose.
