The real estate landscape is changing. Home buyers today can pay for their takeout with apps, ask their phones to call their parents for them, take a leisurely stroll through their favorite neighborhood without leaving their living rooms.
So, it can be a little surprising when a real estate agent shows up at their door with a sheaf of old-fashioned paperwork.
In light of this, it's no surprise that electronic forms and eSignatures are taking over the industry. It’s so much easier for home buyers. All they have to do is tap their iPad a few times and their "paperwork" is done. It's also easier for agents, who don't have to lug around all that paperwork, drive it to the office, and spend hours filling out forms.
