Announcing Notarize’s Free eSignature Product, Digitizing How Businesses Operate with a Single Line of Code

Over the last four years, we’ve solved some incredibly challenging problems. From notarizing documents online to completing fully digital real estate closings, our platform has more than 200 years of combined human effort invested with countless first-of-their-kind innovations to show for it.

No one thought we could digitize some of the most complicated and cumbersome industries, but four years later, we’re averaging nearly $1 billion of online real estate closings per month and powering the customer experiences of thousands of businesses across the country.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce our new free eSignature solution that makes Notarize the world’s first comprehensive digital transaction management platform. Customers can now digitize and automate their operations in a single line of code and run their business more efficiently -- all from one place.

The Path to $1 Billion in Real Estate Transactions, Entirely Online

On August 7th, 2017, Notarize completed the country’s first online real estate closing with United Wholesale Mortgage and Stewart Title. I’ll never forget sweating bullets as we watched in real-time while every single edit was made to 284 pages of closing documents. And it wasn’t just us - a reporter from the Wall Street Journal followed along as we sought to forever transform how millions of Americans buy and sell their homes online.

Today, it's incredibly humbling to announce that we’ve helped people buy and sell more than $1 billion of real estate online. We've saved tens of thousands of hours for our partners and helped thousands of people get into their homes faster.

Digital Mortgages and eClosings Will Save the Real Estate Industry $1 Billion Each Year

United Wholesale Mortgage CEO Mat Ishbia believes that by the end of 2019, the majority of home closings will be done online. The market is moving in the right direction, but what if we took it one step further and imagined a world where the entire home buying process is completed online.

We believe this fully digital real estate experience – from instant mortgages to online closings – will unlock more than $1 billion in savings for companies across the country.

And that’s being conservative.
