Tools to Run a Real Estate Business on the Cloud

Cloud-based options and software like Dropbox or Microsoft365 offer automatic backup and recovery – files are available even if a device is lost or damaged.

NORWALK, Conn. – Real estate professionals are increasingly turning to cloud computing to enhance their business strategies. With cloud-based storage options and software, all agents need is an internet connection and a smartphone or other mobile device to access and share documents.

Cloud solutions offer automatic backup and recovery so agents never lose their files, even if their device is lost, stolen or damaged. In most instances, agents just drag and drop files into a cloud-based application.

Popular cloud storage options to consider include Dropbox, which lets users store content securely and send a link to others for easy sharing. Google Drive offers up to 15GB of free storage space, making it ideal for Android users, while iCloud is ideal for people who use Apple's iOS devices.

Meanwhile, the Box app facilitates collaboration and integrates with Outlook, Google Docs and Microsoft Office365.

Microsoft365 is another popular option for real estate cloud software. It comes with 1TB of OneDrive storage, and users can purchase additional storage.

With SpiderOak, users can easily drag and drop content into their SpiderOak Hive folder to sync data and share it with others.

And, compliant with government security requirements, Huddle offers cutting edge security features. This makes it an ideal real estate cloud software option for many agents and their clients.
