Utilizing Electronic Signatures in Real Estate Transactions

When you are in the process of interviewing and selecting Newport Beach Real Estate agents, an important consideration is if that agent utilizes electronic signatures on the real estate contracts and documents. As part of my practice as a Newport Beach Realtor, I utilize electronic signatures for all my Real Estate transactions, and I utilize a program called Docusign. I have been utilizing this program for several years now. Initially it was ideal for out of state clients, however now I utilize it with all my clients and they all appreciate the sophistication and ease it affords them.signature for docusign

Docusign is an amazing program which allows my clients to sign their documents and  contracts without ever having to print out a document, sign it, scan it, or fax it to return it. This improves the quality of the documents as well as they are not constantly being faxed over and over again reducing the quality of the document.

With the use of Docusign, a document can be signed electronically. Some of my clients have even signed right from their smart phone of iPad.

Once a document is signed by all parties, it is returned to the originator where it can be saved as a PDF and sent,

With the use of Docusign, it eliminates the following:

  1. Printing (saves paper)
  2. Signing (with ink)
  3. Scanning or Faxing

And it is a green program, saving paper in the process because it is all done electronically. So my clients prefer that, and they really like the convenience of utilizing this program.

You may want to ask the Newport Beach Real estate agents you are interviewing if they utilize Docusign or some other method of electronic signature. With Real Estate transactions, time is of the essence, and it is imperative to get documents signed and back to the other party in a timely manner. Docusign helps facilitate this.

Real Estate in general is evolving with technology, and it is important to have a Newport Beach Real Estate agent who is utilizing all the tools that will assist you with the purchase or sale of your home. And it benefits you – as the buyer or seller to select an agent who utilizes Docusign.

If I can answer any questions about the use of Docusign, please contact me.

    I love docusign and so do my clients! It’s so much more convenient for my them, they love the fact that they don’t have to print them out, plus they are easier to store and my clients have a copy of everything right away!

    I wonder why all agents aren’t using them!

    I too use electronic signatures and it is great but its important to also get the wet signature sometime during the continguency period to cover your self legally because anyone can be at the other end of the computer and at least with the wet signature you could have a writing expert match signatures which you can not do with an electronic signature
