Introducing the World’s First Intelligent Closing Automation Platform for Lenders

Notarize is proud to pioneer the ability for anyone to buy, sell, or finance their home entirely online. We’ve facilitated more than $1 billion in online real estate transactions and helped thousands of borrowers close on their dream homes from anywhere in the world.

The last four years have taught us plenty about what it takes to serve lenders -- from the fastest-growing national lenders to small banks and credit unions.

Today, we’re excited to introduce the world’s first closing automation platform. Lenders can now serve every type of closing -- from fully online to hybrid closings.


How Notarize supports every type of closing


Our vision for our lender platform has always been to support how, when, and where borrowers want to close. Whether it’s a first-time homebuyer or a real estate investor, we want to deliver incredible experiences that make one of life’s most important moments easy, seamless, and memorable.

For lenders, offering borrowers the ability to close on their homes entirely online has been extremely powerful. Life happens outside of normal business hours, and it can be a struggle to get to the closing table. However not every loan can close online, nor will every borrower want to opt-in. Many will still want to shake hands with their closing agent.

We love that, which is why our Intelligent Closing Automation Platform for Lenders empowers lenders to offer fully online closings as well as hybrid closings.

The first is a fully automated, entirely digital experience that helps homebuyers close on their home from anywhere in the world, on any device. Hybrid closings allow most documents to be reviewed and electronically signed with Notarize before the closing, but the big day still happens in person.

With Notarize, lenders can offer an industry-leading borrower experience and seamlessly collaborate with their closing partners.

Here are some of the tools and features lenders can take advantage of today:

Online Review - New! Every borrower can receive and review their closing documents online. Your loan officers can interact with your customers online, even if every document is meant to be wet-signed.

Hybrid Closings - New! If a borrower isn’t eligible for an online closing or opts out, they can still eSign the majority of the closing documents online. This accelerates your closing operations, reduces errors, and provides for a better closing.

Improved Online Closings - Together, apart, non-borrowing spouse, parental guarantor… it doesn’t matter. With an update to our Online Closing platform a year in the making, every variety of closing is now supported.

Improved Smart Routing - Simply send every closing to Notarize. Set business rules and rely upon our intelligent closing platform to offer every borrower the appropriate type of closing. Gain efficiencies in all cases.

Notarize Connect - Out of Beta! Leverage our award-winning solution to join online closings as they happen and invite your title and other partners to do the same.

What’s Closing Automation?

Automation is a key component of every experience that ends with “this was way easier than I expected.” From Amazon to Uber, automated processes organize everything in the background to provide you an effortless, click-to-buy journey.

In real estate, the closing process has been held back by a paper-driven process that requires both the seller and buyer to sign documents in front of a closing agent.

Notarize has developed a platform with closing automation at its core, taking the heavy lifting out of every closing. The platform is designed for convenience and streamlines the entire home buying experience -- everything from organizing your digital documents to your meeting with the notary.

We’re excited to shepherd the era of online closings and reimagine real estate for the 21st century.

You have notarization questions, we have notarization answers. While we at Notarize pride ourselves on providing helpful resources (like this blog!) to demystify notarization, we’re not lawyers and don’t give legal advice. Pro tip: always check with your own attorneys, advisors, or document recipients if you have further questions about notarization or digitally notarized docs.
