Avid Firefly has signed up a number of progressive law firms for its Smartphone-based conveyancing costs calculator in the past two months. “There is a marked increase in the number of firms who use FireFly to disseminate conveyancing costs information, instead of the traditional cost booklets,” said Barry Swart, CEO of Avid Software. Firefly includes calculators for Transfer Costs, Bond Costs, Monthly Bond Installments, Bond Affordability, Agent Commission, Price per Square Meter and even Capital Gains Tax.
Law firms that have signed up for Firefly in the past two months include Austin Jordaan Incorporated (Benoni), De Wet Reitz (Randburg), ESI Attorneys (Bellville), Kessler de Jager Attorneys (Goodwood), Johan Jacobs & Malcolm Moodie (Kempton Park), Ben Steyn Incorporated (Boksburg), and Jooste Heswick (Stellenbosch).
The benefit to the Estate Agent is that they can now offer their prospective buyers and sellers a better service by providing instant and accurate answers to financial questions related to their sale or purchase of a property. For the law firm, Firefly is a great (and legal) way of getting their brand into Estate Agencies.
