LOS ANGELES (Dec 2) – Real Estate Business Services® Inc. (REBS®), a subsidiary of the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, today announced Fidelity National Home Warranty (FNHW) and Disclosure Source are the latest service providers to integrate with zipForm®, making it easier and faster for REALTORS® to order their home warranty plan and NHD Report and complete the California Residential Purchase Agreement and Joint Escrow Instructions (RPA-CA).
“Being inside of the real estate transaction when a REALTOR® needs us most is what we’re about,” said Billy Jensen, President and CEO of FNHW and Disclosure Source. “Our products not only protect the buyer and seller, but also the real estate agent in every transaction. That’s why we’re excited to partner with zipForm® in California.”
California REALTORS® can find FNHW in the home warranty company drop-down field of the C.A.R. purchase agreement and other forms that require home warranty company information. Additionally, the Disclosure Source name is an auto-filled option in the natural hazard section of the C.A.R. purchase agreement and other C.A.R. forms.
“Completing information quickly and professionally is important to our members,” said 2014 REBS Chair West De Young. “Having choices at their fingertips while working on transaction documents lets them focus on the other items that need their attention.”
