Calgary Urban Living Attends CIR Realty Event On DocuSign
DocuSign tool allows you to sign documents from any device, creating a faster and more efficient real estate transaction
DocuSign allows documents to be signed and sent securely from any device. When the e-document is sent, the recipient receives an email alert with a message requesting them to sign. For the first-time DocuSign user, the email walks them through how to establish their unique, secure electronic signature.
Using any device, the recipient can add signatures and other requested information as indicated. The document is then stored in a cloud system and everyone involved in the process is alerted that the process is complete. DocuSign is perfect for people needing to sign a document on a deadline and are not able to meet in person.
Lindsey Smith, Professional Development Manager at CIR Realty stated, “DocuSign is probably one of the best technologies that I have seen in real estate, and the biggest time saver since email.”
The foundation of DocuSign is that it is a fast and simple, one-click signing. In today’s, fast-paced Calgary condo and single family market, the convenience of DocuSign will be invaluable when quick decisions can make or break a deal.
The DocuSign platform allows the client to give a legally binding authorization by symbol, something that has been done for a long time as was the case with wax seals, voice authorization, and morse code.
Docusign also allows more than one party to sign the same document, for instance if both husband and wife need to sign. Another great aspect of DocuSign is that it allows the user to initial the document as needed. For peace of mind, Docusign offers an authentication certificate which can be downloaded and gives a record of the signing process.
Piper said he uses Docusign on 80 per cent of his transactions. He added that DocuSign has eliminated the possibility of the client signing in the wrong place because the document shows exactly where the signature is needed. Piper confirmed that he has not had any issues with banks or lawyers challenge the authenticity of DocuSign since he started utilizing the tool.
