Anvil for Real Estate

Digitize document workflows for buying, selling, and renting real estate.

Remove the costs and headaches of building software for real estate document workflows with our secure and compliant Document SDK.
The challenge

Real estate companies are bogged down by

excessive, manual paperwork

– ranging from mortgage applications to lease agreements. It is inefficient and frustrates clients with insecure, back-and-forth email exchanges.

The solution

A Document SDK that provides the

– from

data capture to e-signatures

– for any real estate paperwork. Build secure, user-friendly document workflows for brokers, landlords, and applicants.

As a small business we run a very lean operation. Each location only employs two people: a receptionist and a community manager. Anvil has helped us decrease vacancy rates significantly. Now we focus less on paperwork and data entry, and more on providing the best experience for new and current tenants.

Is Anvil customizable?

Yes. Anvil can dynamically determine which questions are asked in a webform and which PDFs get filled, style the entire form filling experience with CSS, determine the order in which e-signatures are elicited, and even format the output of the final documents. If you find something not customizable, let us know.

How does Anvil help my team build and scale faster?

Paperwork is table-stakes for many businesses but carries an opportunity cost for developers working on core, differentiated features. Our SDK jumpstarts the software development process for documents so you can launch new products faster, saving your engineers months of document-related development time.

How much is Anvil relative to building it all in-house?

It depends on a number of variables (such as the number of developers resourced for building in-house, their salaries, etc.), but we’ve observed customers reducing costs, including time saved, on the order of 3x up to 10x.

Does Anvil allow multiple parties to contribute to a set of documents?

Yes. Submission links can be saved and completed at a later time, allowing multiple parties to contribute to the same Webform.

We also support multiple Webforms so that each party can fill in their own data from all Webforms can be mapped across documents.

How easy is it to switch from my current document solution?

All of your Docusign templates can be uploaded to Anvil for immediate use.

Do clients get a copy of documents signed with Anvil?

Yes. We'll notify all signing parties when the documents have been completed and notify them to go download their docs.

Are Anvil signatures legally binding?

Each country has its own legal framework that governs e-signatures including. Let's look at the United States specifically. The United States government passed the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) along with the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act in 2000 - the former being enforced on a federal level and the latter on a state level. According to both acts, the use of electronic signatures is legally binding and covers a variety of capture methods such as signing with a finger on a touchscreen, typing the signer's name into a Webform, or using an e-signature solution like Anvil Etch. If you’re curious to read more, we wrote a blog post about it.

Can Anvil generate all documents and route some documents to signature and exclude others to be signed in person?

Yes. You can select the specific PDFs you want to be generated as part of an Etch E-sign packet. Any packets you do not want e-signed can be generated via our PDF services API.

Can Anvil help me maintain my library of compliant real estate documents?

Yes. Anvil makes it super easy to swap out underlying PDF files, and we provide version control, too.
