What is Real Estate Accounting?

Closing a transaction involves many parties, including buyers and sellers, Agents, Brokerages, lawyers, escrow and title companies.

The execution of a Real Estate deal includes taking in or tracking monies in trust or escrow until the sale completes. At that time, monies being held are distributed among the Agents as commission earned.

A Brokerage earns income by taking an agreed-upon fee or fees from their Agents’ commission.

Loft is specifically designed to work for Brokerages and their Agents. We provide the platform to create the transaction and track all contractual documents and financial data for the Brokerage and all their Agents.
