Electronic signatures bring consumer benefits

Technology plays a critical part in real estate transactions for buyers, sellers, tenants, landlords and real estate agents.

One of the big recent advances has been the rise of electronic signatures to execute contractual agreements.

The Real Estate Institute of NSW is facilitating this through the use of DocuSign electronic signatures with our forms and agreements used in the sale of properties and other real estate transactions.

There are many benefits to this, including allowing contracts to be signed within minutes on mobile phones, tablets or computers by people anywhere in the world.

Replacing paperwork with digital documents will help reinvent the customer experience and help make transactions easier, faster and more secure.

The use of this digital signing technology will become common over the next few years, so get ready!
