Mobility. Mobility is one of the greatest perks of e-signatures for real estate agents and brokers because the e-signature technology allows a user to sign a document from virtually anywhere. Because many e-signatures are supported by cloud-based software, signers are able to e-sign a document from the convenience of any mobile phone, tablet or laptop, omitting the need to be in an office.
Speed. In real estate, time is of the essence, and a 10-minute delay in getting a signed offer to the seller could potentially cost the buyer the deal. With e-signatures, once the user signs the document, it is instantly and securely sent to the original owner or to the party designated to sign next, reducing bottlenecks that often occur with mailing, faxing, emailing and printing contracts and forms.
Efficiency and Accuracy. E-signature technology can require mandatory information and signed fields, ensuring a document is not submitted unless it's 100 percent complete. This ensures the signer doesn't miss any information or signature boxers.
Cost. Because e-signature technology is supported by cloud-based software, it can quickly reduce expenses for agents or signers. With e-signatures, you no longer need to consider paper, ink, shipping costs (including envelopes and postage) or additional costs associated in delivering documents for processing.
In a fast-paced real estate world, the last thing buyers and sellers want is for a transaction to be held up or missed due to waiting for signatures. Thanks to e-documents, all the parties involved in a transaction can have peace of mind, no matter where they are.
