I work with a good number of people who are moving to Chattanooga. Usually, after a long day of looking at homes for sale (28 in one day is my personal record!), they'll make a decision and then say - panicking - "but I'm leaving first thing tomorrow morning, how are we going to sign the contract?"
And then I get to laugh like an evil genius because I know that if you have an email account, you can sign a contract without any more hassle than it is to delete your cousin Howard's forwarded jokes.
I use a service called EchoSign. It's secure, completely legal and accepted by almost* everyone. It's the easiest thing since sliced bread and it doesn't require a printer, scanner or fax machine.
Clickety-click and you're done. Once everyone has signed, it will automatically send you a copy of the signed contract. There is an audit trail on the back end showing the email address of the person who did the signing so it's just as secure as your email.
But since this is something that is new to most people, I put together a little video to show you how it works before you actually do it.
Please to enjoy!
*HUD, oh HUD, why must you insist on "wet" signatures?
