Trading paper-based and manual processes for automated, digital workflows is a much-needed transformation in the real estate industry. Whether you are an agency owner, broker, agent, property manager, builder, mortgage processor, closer, buyer or seller—paperwork shouldn’t be painful!

Enjoy the many benefits of an eSignature solution:

  • Increased Efficiency
  • Better Client Relationships
  • Time and Cost Savings
  • Convenient Mobility
  • Stronger Security and Compliance
  • Easy Scalability
  • Paperless Transactions

Complete Transactions in Minutes, Not Days

As you know, efficiency is the name of the game in real estate. You’re competing against multiple offers and writing offers at midnight. You’re negotiating deals while ordering your morning coffee. It’s critical for you and your clients that you can get contracts and documents signed and submitted in a matter of minutes, or it can cost you a deal.

With electronic signatures, you can accelerate real estate transactions in many ways:

  • Reduce redundant tasks with time-saving eSignature templates and document packages
  • Eliminate the need for physical, in-person signings and printing
  • Enable any person to sign any document in seconds
  • Ensure the same, or better, level of security and trust as conventional signatures

eSign & Track Your Real Estate Documents Anytime, Anywhere

Today, real estate is more than chasing your next deal. You must also provide superior service and an excellent experience to be successful and competitive—and that means for your clients, agents and employees. Whether you’re selling a property or onboarding a new agent or employee, if all you can offer is stacks of paper or outdated technology while your competitors embrace digitization, your reputation and your revenue will suffer.

Electronic signatures provide an easier, more secure experience.

  • Sign any document on the go, anywhere in the world, from any device
  • Send, sign, approve and track signatures in one solution
  • Securely archive, store, access and audit documents
  • Gain full visibility into your document lifecycle

Make eSign Security and Compliance Effortless

Any type of signature in real estate must be authentic and legally binding—and that includes electronic signatures.

Compliance is more important than ever, yet often overlooked when choosing an eSignature solution and vendor.

No matter where your real estate transactions occur—locally, regionally or globally—did you know there are specific laws and regulations for electronic signatures you must comply with? When you are doing business through cross-border transactions, it gets even more complex.

How do you minimize risk?

Many real estate organizations don’t have dedicated security and legal teams to ensure you are meeting all these complicated requirements. That’s why you want to choose a high-trust electronic signature solution and vendor that does the heavy lifting for you behind the scenes.

How do you know if your electronic signatures are compliant?

The good news is electronic signatures are legally recognized and enforceable in almost every part of the world.

European Union

European Union

The electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services (eIDAS) regulation has been directly applicable to all member states of the European Union since 2016 to enable secure, seamless electronic interactions.
