BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Notarize, the first company to enable an entirely online real estate closing process, is today announcing that it is officially opening up its title network, empowering title agents nationwide to place orders for online closings in five minutes or less.
To date, in order to join the title network, agents have needed to go through a long contracting process that has prevented them from offering an online closing to their clients when they need it most - when they’re stuck abroad or can’t get out of work to attend the closing. Notarize has updated the entire process and platform to make it easier than ever for any title company to get started, and deliver a closing experience built for the way people want to buy and sell homes.
“Last summer we announced our product for title agents for the first time, and we’ve been blown away by the response,” said Notarize Founder and CEO Pat Kinsel. “We’ve helped people sell their homes from Japan after relocating for a new job and others coordinate with buyers who couldn’t make an in-person closing. Both would have taken days and thousands of dollars to coordinate. Now, title companies can provide the speed and convenience the real estate industry deserves.”
Title agents can sign up for free, and place orders in minutes. Notarize’s intelligent closing platform does the heavy lifting behind the scenes to let an agent know if an order can be closed online. And once a closing occurs, title agents can connect with signers and collaborate with their partners in real-time to ensure a seamless experience for all parties.
Elevated Title, a national title company headquartered in Utah, has completed more than 50 online closings with Notarize, and believes homebuyers will expect this convenience moving forward.
“We chose Notarize because we saw where the market was heading,” said Brian Lemke, Chief Business Officer at Elevated Title. “Homebuyers were becoming more tech-savvy, and the way we wanted people to close on their home simply wasn’t the way they wanted to anymore. Notarize gave us the ability to use cutting-edge technology to deliver an experience that was easy, convenient, and accessible to homebuyers.”
The top underwriters partner with Notarize and support fully online closings in nearly every state nationwide. Notarize supports cash purchase and sales, as well as lender-initiated closings, supporting title agents in every transaction.
