Do you know everything you need to about CDA forms (Commission Disbursement Authorization forms)? Perhaps you have a system in place. Maybe what you’ve been using has been fine. However, it’s what you don’t know that can hurt you when it comes to growing your real estate brokerage.
As we’ve mentioned before, one of the most difficult components of managing a thriving brokerage is paying commissions. Hopefully, you have great agents working for you who complete a lot of transactions every year. In that case, you can count on the fact that they expect to be paid the right amount, promptly, each and every time they complete a deal. Hoping to gain new talent? Rest assured that agents talk to each other and network, and top talent is only going to end up a company with a reputation for helping them make money. That means you have the tools in place to enable them in their job, as well as a reliable process for getting agents their money exactly when they expect it. All of this to say: if you want to attract and keep agents that will make your brokerage a lot of money, you need a reliable and fool-proof way to manage their commissions. That’s where CDA software comes in.
The CDA is a type of form that is filled out to allow real estate agents to collect their rightful commission for their work. It’s essentially the check that is cut out to the agents by the title company at closing. The commission itself is typically issued by the title company. Managing those files and using them as part of your larger payment processes can be complicated and involve using more than one platform, which leaves room for error.
Many of the most successful brokerages leverage a CDA software solution. This sort of solution allows you to do the following things:
- Account for all nuances to make sure there is no miscommunication or delay
- Authorize commission disbursement with a single click.
- Populate all contact and commission data within the system
- Email statements directly from the system
- Digitally sign statements electronically
- Create and setup your own custom commission disbursement form template
- Send the forms to your title or escrow company directly from the system
- Leverage the detailed automatic log file to show all steps in case of an audit
- Take advantage of reports that show transactions that have been processed or those that are still pending
