In order for real estate professionals to continue to do business from the safety of their homes, it is imperative that current regulations preventing remote home sales and mortgage transactions be lifted. NAHREP urges law makers to remove all red tape involving remote home sale transactions. The Remote Online Notarizations (RONs) will allow a notary and signer to safely and securely execute electronic documents using a two-way audiovisual communication. As of now, 23 states have approved the use of RON technology. However, borrowers in more than half the country remain unable to close on a real estate transaction without an in-person signing.
