Benefits of Electronic Signature for Real Estate Agents

Electronic signatures help REALTORS®, their clients and others involved in the home buying process complete transactions faster. Find out how WeSignature can help.

Why use an Electronic Signature for Real Estate?

Electronic signature technology allows your clients and everyone else to sign documents during the home-buying process.

When you handle real estate agreements digitally, you can eliminate many inefficiencies from the home buying process.

Thanks to electronic signature technology, your brokerage company can:

  • Sharpen your competitive advantage: Today’s shoppers are more informed and digitally savvy than ever before.
    Agents are under increasing pressure, especially as millennials dominate the market.
    To do your job well, you need a set of digital tools that meet the high expectations of your customers. Get started with your paperwork—and eliminate the endless paperwork that needs to be printed, signed, mailed, and faxed.
  • Close the deal quickly: As an agent, your job involves real estate forms that can take time to complete.
    Any delay in this process increases the likelihood that tired customers will move on and ask their friends to do the same.
    According to the National Association of REALTORS®, its members rely on repeat clients and referrals from previous clients to account for up to 30% of their business.
  • Spend more time with clients and less time on paperwork: Real estate is built on relationships that are built to exceed client expectations.

This now means delivering the on-demand digital experiences that buyers and sellers expect.

For example, clients hate being asked to fax a sales contract to fill out or print, sign, scan, and mail seller disclosure forms.

With electronic signature technology, you can significantly improve your customer satisfaction.

Digital agreements and electronic signatures can save you time and eliminate the administrative tasks of managing physical documents and re-entering data that put you at risk.

  • Save time and money: Electronic signatures eliminate the costs associated with printing, sending, and storing documents.
    By replacing manual workflows with digital signatures and automated processes, you can run your business faster and at a lower cost.

Complete Transactions Faster with Remote Online Notarization (RON)

Agents understand that signing is just one step in the buying and selling process.

To complete the sale, documents must be signed and notarized.

However, the process of coordinating buyers, sellers, and their respective agents can be a major logistical undertaking that could potentially delay closing.

To quickly sign and notarize documents, real estate agents can use a remote online notarization (RON) solution to notarize electronic signatures from anywhere in the world.

With RON you can:

  • Offer your clients flexibility in time and location: RON eliminates the need for physical presence, allowing real estate agents to complete notarization procedures at their convenience.
    This flexibility is especially useful when working with clients or properties in different states or countries.
  • Reduce administrative burden: Real estate agents often handle a significant amount of paperwork, including contracts, deeds, and other documents.
    Remote online notarization simplifies the notarization process by reducing the need to physically transport documents.
  • Improving the security of notarization: Reputable RON solutions use advanced security measures to ensure the authenticity and integrity of the notarization process.

    This can reduce the risk of fraud and provide a higher level of security than traditional notarization methods.

A One-Stop E-Signature Solution for Real Estate

Although most agents use electronic signatures, signing is only one part of the document management process.
