The fax is so '90's, sign electronically!Posted by Brett Tousley on Wednesday, October 20th, 2010 at 10:01pm.
For the past few years we've been using electronic signatures to ensure our buyers offers are presented as quickly and timely as possible. We've written offers for buyers in nearly every continent in the world using this feature and have experienced great feedback from our clients and excellent results as well.
With the current Washington real estate market being dominated by bank owned properties, electronic signatures have been invaluable for our clients. If you are looking for a bank owned or foreclosed home, electronic signatures can be the difference between getting a "once in a lifetime" deal and just missing the boat.
A few short years ago, we were forced to send our contracts via email and our clients would need to print out the offers, sign them and either fax or scan them back to us. As many of our clients are currently in far flung locales where a kinkos or ups store isn''t exactly around the corner we searched for a better solution.
NW Home Brokers has always sought to be on the tip of the spear, (not the bleeding edge) of technology. As a result we were one of the first brokerages to embrace digital signatures. As a result we have many happy homeowners!
Whether you are in Bagdad, Kabul, Seoul or Austrailia, we have an easy solution for you to submit offers on homes in your next duty station. Electronic signatures via email.
If you see a home on our website that really catches your eye, there are a couple of easy steps you need to take to ensure it's ready and waiting for you when you arrive.
1: Get yourself pre approved for a home loan! I understand this is the least favorite part of your home buying experience, but getting pre approved in advance will help us negotiate the very best deal possible on your new home. Most banks and home sellers won't even consider your offer without a pre approval letter. You can use whatever lender you feel comfortable with, but if you need a referral to a great local lender, we can provide you with several options.
2: Don't be shy! Feel free to either call our broker at 253-820-2745 or send him an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are ready to make an offer, we will be glad to show the home to some of your local friends or shoot you a video of the home and surrounding area. We do it quite often and will be happy to help you too! Remember, our website offers both birds eye views of the neighborhood as well as google street views of the homes.
3: Once you know what type and size of mortgage you qualify for, let us know exactly what type of home you are looking for. Chances are one of our brokers may have the perfect home ready to be listed. You may be the first buyer to see one of our bank owned homes, well before the competition.
4: Our brokers can show you any home listed by any broker and represent your best interests in the transaction. We work for you and our fee is paid by the sellers.
If you need more info on the process or are interested in making a painless offer on a home via the Internet, give our managing broker a call @ 253-820-2745 or email@example.com
