What REALTORS® in Ontario (and beyond) should know about digital signatures and WEBForms®

On July 1, 2015, real estate brokers and agents in Ontario joined those in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland in their ability to use digital signatures to legally bind agreements used for the transfer of real property, such as the Agreement of Purchase and Sale.

This is great news for REALTORS® and their clients.

Digital signatures (also known as electronic signatures and e-signatures) save everyone involved in the transaction valuable time. Let’s hear it for less printing, less faxing, and less driving across town to get signatures! Digital signatures help you keep up with the speed of business while on the go and enhance customer satisfaction by enabling your clients to sign documents anytime, anywhere.

WEBForms® makes it easy.

According to a national member survey on our products and services, 90% of members identified WEBForms® as an important member benefit, while 80% reported they use the service frequently. With this level of member support, CREA will continue to invest in WEBForms® to ensure our members have access to the services and functionality that are most important to the success of their businesses. 

And in case you missed it, we have negotiated special member pricing with three digital signature providers to get you great rates on premier digital signature products, giving you and your clients more signing flexibility through WEBForms®.
