After working for months to try and resolve technology issues with new computers and upgraded on-line forms I’m now able to offer my customers the convenience of electronic signatures.
Gone is the FAX to PDF hassle. Now you can sign securely right on-line and send the contract back. Being able do more of the technology end of a real estate transaction directly on-line saves everyone time and at the end of the day we actually end up with a readable contract!
I realize this technology isn’t new but part of the issue has been getting other agents on board and getting the real estate boards to say YES this is a legal contract. Unfortunately after going through the entire process on one recent transaction I learned the lawyers at Cartus Relocation won’t accept electronic signatures and the buyer’s had to resign a contract with a good old pen.
Now I guess I can get rid of the fax machine with the roll of Thermal paper….just kidding!
