Real Estate Documents Increase 200% YOY on DocuSign Global Network
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
the official and exclusive eSignature provider to the National
Association of REALTORS® (NAR's) one million members, under the REALTOR
Benefits® Program, announced today that use of DocuSign in real estate
transactions has tripled over the past 12 months, with real estate
professionals and their clients using DocuSign in more than four million
documents. In response to this increase in use, DocuSign launched an
all-new DocuSign for REALTORS® version of their award winning
service-guided by real estate agent, broker and client feedback-with new
features including fax out for signature and payments.
DocuSign's growth in real estate has also been fueled this year by Bank
of America accepting DocuSign for short sales and "real estate owned"
(REO) transactions for homes owned by a lender following an unsuccessful
foreclosure auction, and recent changes to New York law that make
DocuSign valid for real estate transactions in New York.
"Everyone at DocuSign is pleased that major banks and government
institutions see the value and inevitability of DocuSign electronic
signatures," said Ken Moyle, chief legal officer of DocuSign and
chairman of the Electronic Signature and Records Association. "More and
more home sellers, buyers, and real estate professionals across the
country are turning to DocuSign for the easiest, fastest, most secure
way to buy or sell a home."
"DocuSign cuts out all the time and expense associated with trying to
obtain a signature on a document," said Aaron Wheeler, president and
managing broker of Oakville Properties. "In the real estate business, I
don't understand how anyone could operate without DocuSign."
"It's great to see DocuSign embraced as the eSignature standard across
the real estate industry," said Dustin Grosse, chief marketing officer
at DocuSign. "DocuSign improves the speed and convenience of property
transactions while reducing costs and delighting all
stakeholders-buyers, sellers, agent and brokers."
