How many times have you had to mail/email real estate contracts and other documents across the state or even across the country to get signatures and/or initials from your clients? It even becomes more difficult when you have multiple clients that need to sign and they don’t live in the same area!
This how many REALTORS® deal with out of town clients;
- First he mails the documents to the first clients
- They send it back to him a few days later
- Then he mails it to the second client
- They send it back to him a few weeks later
- Then the closing date changes and the process starts again with an amendment!
How much did this cost in postage/shipping/overnight fees and how long did it take? If this REALTOR® sent these documents in this sample scenario with an overnight speedy delivery company, they would have spent near if not over $100 and it would have taken almost a full week.
If the REALTOR® had simply used an electronic document signature solution like DocuSign he could have spent nothing or a minimal amount and had the fully executed documents back in his hands within the hour!
But, are they legal?
Many brokers and agents question the legality of electronic signatures. Believe it or not, they are legal for use on official documents in the State of Kansas. You can read more about the legalities here in an article written by Luke Bell the VP of Governmental Affairs for the Kansas Association of REALTORS®
