When COVD-19 began to impact the country, institutional investors saw the importance of switching to a fully-digital process. Real estate companies began to offer virtual home tours, and when faced with the difficulty of conducting an in-person notarization to finalize closing documents, the need for a remote online notarization (RON) became apparent. 

At eNotaryLog, we saw the challenge the real estate industry was facing and created a solution. From consent documents to a full eClosing, we offer flexible solutions for your real estate needs. Here are five reasons the real estate industry is working with a remote online notarization, like eNotaryLog, to securely transform workflows and digitize processes.

1. Better Client Experience

Clients want a more convenient and streamlined buying and closing experience. When you utilize the online workflows provided by RON, you provide your clients the experience they deserve. No longer do you have to meet in person or print out all the necessary documents that need signing and notarization. In collaboration with the title company, lender, and online notarization provider, licensed online notaries guide parties through the eClosing process to make sure documents are executed accordingly. 

2. Safe and Secure

Some homebuyers may be skeptical about their information being uploaded to a digital system, but with eNotaryLog, you can give them peace of mind knowing we were the first Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO) certified remote online notarization platform, and are SOC 2 compliant. MISMO’s RON standards provide a common set of requirements, including credential analysis, signer identification, capturing and maintaining a recording of the notary process electronically, audio and video requirements, record storage, and audit trails. You can trust our ability to digitally store only what’s required after the transaction. 

3. Accelerate Business Growth

The use of RON can be particularly beneficial where one or more of the signers is unable to physically appear before a notary public. For example, if a signer is located in a different state or is unable to travel due to illness or disability, they can still participate in the notarization process through the online platform. During this global pandemic, RON has been especially beneficial in providing a contactless option for clients; and one that has helped accelerate the digital experience and experience for homebuyers and sellers. When you can spend more time selling, your business has the opportunity to grow exponentially. 

4. Flexible Solutions

A RON provider should provide a variety of notary options to meet your business needs. This should include a process for using your own notaries, utilizing one of the providers’ notaries, hiring a signing service, or a combination thereof. The provider should be flexible enough to grow with your business; provide single document to full eClosing notarization services, provide access to previous signings, and secure certificate documentation.
