Realtor Contracts Programs with ESignatures

Realtor Contracts Programs with ESignatures? What's yours?

Last week in the D.C. Area, we received an email from MBAI Forms that effective year end the product will be closed down. Ten years of contact writing comfort zone right down the drain. It worked easily with Docusign and with Docusign Transaction Room, formerly called Cartavi. Not to mention Marvin gave exceptional, off the charts service to each of us.

So I decided to face facts and plunge in to the Dot Loop Frey today.  I immersed myself in day long training in Annapolis last week. I read the manual over the Holiday. I called for tech help. I listened to Webinars. And for six solid hours, I worked today on an offer to print out and take to the Buyer's house to sign. His computer was on the fritz so saved by the bell I was. No ESignatures learning curvewould be required  on the first try.

Yep, I fell in every pot hole. I added folders instead of document forms. I had to learn each form nomenclature. The classes and tapes were not like the real deal of doing it. I used Internet Explorer which has many glitches absent in the Chrome Browser. 

The tech folks helped. One rep, however,  said I needed to go to more training and then come back to try again. I explained I needed to get the offer signed in about 90 minutes so that was not an option.  The fifty pages of contracts and listings in the Southern MD area is quite a challenge all alone.

Anyway, eight hours and a career THIRD contracts program under my belt to crank out an offer or listing, the pages are signed and off to the Seller.

Tomorrow? Practice doing this with e signatures. It's Docusign and Zip Forms in AACounty, DotLoop in Southern MD and possibly a new DigiForms product to work with Skyslope at the office. 

WHEW! A arealtor's job is never done.

Something is not right if you need a full day (and then some) of training to learn a new program that was so simple to begin with. I will miss MBAI forms and hope to find a easier solution.

That is WAY too much training for me. While I use Authentisign most of the time (since it's the MRIS and L&F endorsed program), I use PDF Expert on the run for Agency disclosures, pre-settlement inspections, etc. signatures on my iPad. And I have a full blank contract and every MAR and AACAR addendum available in PDF Expert in case Authentisign is down or slow. Very easy, no training, just a little bit of trial and error one evening to master it.

Wow that's an awful amount of training for what should be a simple task. I do hope it gets easier or I would be looking for a new program.
