Prior to 2020, the real estate industry spent years imagining what the world might look like once critical transactions were digitized. Well, now we know. The end-to-end digital experience has arrived and it’s even better than we imagined. And we aren’t going back.
As the category pioneer and leader, Notarize completed the country’s first legal online notarization, online real estate closing, online mortgage, online will, and online auto sale. We’re at the forefront of bringing trust to life’s most important transactions.
For six years, Notarize has traveled the country advocating for remote online notarization with state and federal legislators. At every turn, we said that it’s a critical option for those who need it. But when COVID hit in March 2020, remote online notarization became an essential service overnight. Realtors, lenders, and title agents were challenged like never before and were forced to reimagine every aspect of how they help their clients find and purchase a new home. With Americans moving at unprecedented rates during the pandemic, digital closings were the transformative solution for Americans looking to safely purchase and sell real estate, whether they’re moving across town or across the country.
Necessary now—and in the future
What’s clear from the rush to digitization out of necessity is that digital closings and remote online notarizations are here to stay. 2020 proved the concept that people want to go digital because it’s faster and more convenient, but also because it’s safer and more secure—and dare I say delightful—for you and your clients.
It’s not enough to have a great marketing team, a great way to advertise, or a dedicated network of clients. The most successful real estate agents will play a vital role in connecting the entire real estate process; from the home search to the notarization at closing.
