AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Sellers Shield™, a leader in software and legal solutions that protect real estate brokers, agents and home sellers from lawsuits, today announced a partnership with zipLogix™, the industry leader in transaction management software and creators of zipForm®. This revolutionary partnership will enable property sellers to complete key C.A.R. seller’s disclosure forms online using Sellers Shield’s Smart Seller Tools™. California real estate professionals will be able to provide their listing clients access to the tools at no cost.
Sellers Shield’s Smart Seller Tools™ include easy-to-use interactive disclosure forms, an instructional video, legal FAQs/definitions and custom-formatted PDFs. These tools make up a simple, turn-key solution that guides home sellers through the disclosure process preventing critical mistakes that can cause lawsuits for sellers, agents and brokers. California real estate professionals will each receive a personal online dashboard used to invite sellers to disclose, manage all active disclosures and track the completion status of each listing client.
In addition to the Smart Seller Tools™, Sellers Shield™ also offers Home Sale Legal Protection™ that protects sellers with up to $20,000 paid legal representation on claims made after the sale. Sellers can easily opt in during the disclosure process. As an added benefit to brokers and agents, Sellers Shield™ is endorsed by multiple, leading E&O insurance providers who offer deductible waivers on claims where Sellers Shield is used.
“We’re excited to partner with Sellers Shield™ and offer the Smart Seller Tools™ to C.A.R. members as a part of zipForm® Plus,” said zipLogix™ CEO Scott Strong. “We believe that California real estate professionals and their listing clients will immensely benefit from this interactive seller’s disclosure process designed to prevent lawsuits.”
Sellers Shield™ has been active in Texas since late 2016 and many of the largest brokerages in the state utilize the Smart Seller Tools™ for every listing. Broker Craig Owen of Keller Williams Heritage in San Antonio, TX, states “It just makes good sense, Sellers Shield™ reduces the risk for Sellers, Brokers, Agents and even Buyers.
