Deed imaging will soon become an absolute necessity. As mentioned earlier, document management is a problem that affects every industry; and real estate is no different. Deeds and other property contracts are cumbersome files that must remain accessible to buyers, owners and real estate agents.

A Relentless Flow of Paper
If you've ever purchased or sold property you have a pretty clear idea of the paperwork involved. Simply closing on a house requires your signature on hundreds of pieces of paper. Once you leave the closing you have in your hands one copy of that documentation. Where do the others go?

A Need for Deed Imaging

Law offices and real estate agents maintain records for verification purposes. As an owner you only have copies of your records, but imagine the number of documents that each law office and real estate agent must retain. The storage required for this data is astronomical, thus presenting the need for deed imaging.

This is where deed imaging can help. Just like medical record or legal imaging, the digital capture of deeds can drastically reduce the amount of storage space needed. Consider that one compact disk has the capacity to hold nearly 20,000 black and white pages of documentation. Add on pages or date stamping and a web-based retrieval system and storing and accessing documentation has never been easier!
