Technology plays a critical part in nearly every aspect of the real estate transaction for buyers, sellers, tenants, landlords and real estate agents.

It is also constantly evolving, one of the big advancements in recent times is electronic signatures which are fast becoming more popular.

The Real Estate Institute of NSW will soon be providing our members with access to electronic signatures through an association with DocuSign.

This will allow our members to sign and serve forms and agreements electronically.

There are many benefits with electronic transactions. It allows contracts to be signed within minutes on mobile phones, tablets or computers by clients anywhere in the world.

It is also safer as the forms are encrypted and pages cannot go missing meaning there is no chance of them being tampered with.
