We have talked many times in the last year how innovative technology is changing the way real estate agents do business. The end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 began to change dramatically with agents having the capability to get “e-signatures” on documents such as: listings, contracts, addendums, special agreements and repair requests. 2015 seems to be an even bigger year for the “e-signature” business.
Applications like Dotloop and DocuSign make a real estate transaction easy no matter where your location. Spouses and/or family do not have to be in the exact same place to sign their documents anymore. E-signatures so far are only accepted on real estate transactions and not for the actual closing documents or loan application paperwork.
Lorrie Kleier with Murney Associates, west office states, “All I have to do is scan the documents into DocuSign, then attach the individual emails, mark where each needs to sign and send the documents for each parties signatures. Once one person signs they click the certified signature button and then forward it on to the next party until all have signed. I have clients who travel for business and sometimes they are on different coasts, but we get the deal signed. It has made all of my real estate transactions smoother and the process is easy.”
This is not to say that ALL real estate agents use such “e-signature” applications. Some still prefer to hand write the contract and either fax or meet their clients face to face. Yep, we just said faxing! No matter how your Murney agent requests your signatures, know that your Murney agent is knowledgeable in all new areas of the latest and greatest technology.
