Stay Informed on Digital Closings!

Learn about digital closings and how to get your practice ready.

Real estate closings will change over the next 2-3 years and move in the direction of less paper and more technology. Lenders are recognizing the efficiency and cost savings associated with processing loans digitally. Consumers are getting much more comfortable conducting business digitally. Our state has joined the movement by authorizing Remote Online Notarization (RON) effective Jan. 1, 2020.
