NAR announced in 2021 that they would not be continuing the Lone Wolf zipForm Plus member benefit for 2022. To ensure OREF subscribers did not have the added platform cost, we partnered with SkySlope Forms to include free access to their platform as a part of your OREF subscription.
Starting September 15, 2021, individuals who use SkySlope Forms will have free access to the platform. Group or team platforms, including SkySlope Forms Prime or SkySlope Forms Homebase, may still have a cost associated with SkySlope, but will still have the full OREF library integration.
No. If you already have an active OREF subscription, you do not need to purchase a new subscription to use SkySlope. When you purchased or renewed your OREF subscription, you entered your Oregon real estate license number or Oregon State Bar number. This number is your unique OREF ID and can be used in any third-party transaction platforms licensed to host the OREF library, even if you have already activated it on another platform.
You do not need to switch from any platform you are currently using. Lone Wolf (zipForms) is still licensed as a third-party transaction management platform to host the OREF library. As an OREF subscriber, you can access SkySlope Forms at no cost. Your OREF ID (Oregon real estate license number or Oregon State Bar number) can activate your subscription in any other transaction platforms licensed to host the OREF library, including Lone Wolf (zipForm Plus), DocuSign, and Form Simplicity.
OREF licenses with third-party transaction platforms so subscribers to the OREF library can leverage the benefits and features that make the most sense for their business needs. Compare pricing and features by visiting the platform websites:
