For the last few years, I’ve been using a service called efax to send faxes electronically, as well as to receive them electronically in my email, as well. Clients loved it because it kept everything electronically, and I loved it because it allowed me to send and receive faxes anywhere.
Whoa, I was missing out. Just used Docusign to send and receive a signed contract electronically, with no faxes, and I didn’t realize what I was missing. Instead of sending a document via efax, I can send it electronically and it never has to be printed. The client just opens the file online, signs digitally, and then sends it back electronically.
And does it ever work! Used it last week in a time-sensitive, competing offer situation. Rather than have my client waiting by a fax machine for my electronic fax to come through, I was able to send it and receive it in a matter of minutes, making our offer the first one the seller saw, and ultimately signed.
Consider me a fan. Another way to make Real Estate. Simplified.
