Electronic Signatures Make Signing Real Estate Documents a No Brainer

I have been immersed in Docusign lately. Practice makes perfect. What a great tool.

P.S. I decided to post a screenshot a day of my 27 iPad apps screens for the March 2013 write a post a day contest. 

Lots of Earn to Learn Tools in Active Rain!

 One of my Sellers suggested that I should write about the benefits of electronic signatures and to advise the  Sellers and Buyers out there to understand how easy and unstressed electronic signatures can be and that Buyers and Sellers should also know that their agent is technology literate before signing up with them. 

My Seller was telling me today that they were glad I was their agent because I make their efforts so easy in a getting their property under contract.

The ease of using DocuSign to complete the signing and completion of documents is very easy and anyone  can sign and initial documents from any devise or computer. When my Sellers had purchased their home 3 years ago, the process was so much more difficult and papers were going back and forth and she said the entire selling process has been made so much easier using Electronic signatures.

I advocate for DocuSign and  I think it is the best industry standard. If you are not using this service, you should be. It is very easy, saves so much time and keeps the integrity and clarity of the documents in their original condition when you need to print them. And typically, signatures, initials or dates are not missed by the Seller or Buyer. This is a mistake proof method of signing that if one field should be missed, the Buyer or seller can not complete signing the documents and saving until it is filled in. Think of it as the second set of eyes to be sure the documents are complete.

I love it. Can't believe so many realtors think it is worth their time ( And gas $) to run around to get signatures. Now if foreclosure banks would allow them we would be so happy! Is it the banks won't allow them or mis informed listing agents?

Unlees your banks like One West that seems to be working on a 1980's format.

Hi Cheryl, Thank you so much for the reblog. I think with the popularity and the courts holding these signatures valid, banks will eventually catch on and embrace the electronic signatures. It will save them time as well.
