Are Electronic Signatures Right for Your Business?

go green new yearGuest Contributor GoPaperless says:

More and more REALTORS® are completing real estate transactions using electronic signatures. Not surprisingly, these REALTORS® do not miss chasing faxes or maintaining large files of paperwork. These REALTORS® are finding also that real estate moves faster in the digital world, and clients are impressed with the speed and ease with which the transactions occur.

So how does it work?

In cases where the clients are at a distance, like at home for example while the REALTOR® is at their office or on the road, the REALTOR® will send the client a link to the documents with the areas they need to sign highlighted. The client will identify themselves and click to sign the document over the Internet. The electronic signature is legally binding in a real estate or other business transaction, so the process moves forward the same as it would have had the client and REALTOR® met for an in-person signing. Obviously, not having that meeting saved everyone a great deal of time.
