Check out the brief video to see what you will see in your electronic signature request

FAQs:

Are electronic signatures safe?

Even the United States Government is accepting electronic signatures for documents in real estate transactions.  Using a reputable provider ensures a safer transaction.  I use Docusign® which is also the choice of the National Association of REALTORS®.

Do all transaction types accept electronic signatures?

At this time there are still some hold-outs that insist on “wet” signatures.  Most REO (bank-owned) sellers require wet signatures to complete the transaction.  However, using e-signatures to make the offer gets the offer in more quickly.

Do I have to print my copy?

Absolutely not!  You can save your copy in a PDF format on your computer.  If you are one of my clients, you will also request a CD at the conclusion of your transaction that will provide an archive of every document and related report.

Should I make an account to store my document online?

Only if you want to.  It’s probably easiest for most people to save a copy in PDF or wait for the Transaction CD.
