Gone are the days of having to receive paperwork via e-mail (or fax!), print it out, sign it, scan it, pray all of the pages scanned correctly and e-mail it to next party, who has to go through the same process, before the executed contract comes back completely illegible.
Not only does e-signing make for much neater contracts, it also expedites the offer-to-executed-contract process. As a buyer or seller, you no longer have to be waiting by a printer, fax machine, or scanner. You just open the file, acknowledge that the electronic signature is legally binding, choose your signature, and sign, initial and date where indicated with the click of a key stroke! As soon as you are done, the program automatically sends it to the next person for their signature.
