Realtor Use of the RPost Registered Email®Service to Close Deals

By Jack Cranley,attorney at law, former AssociateGeneral Counsel of CitiMortgage.


In most real estate transactions there is an offer,counter-offer, and acceptance process. The longer ittakes to close on an offer, the greater the riskthat other parties might learn the details of thedeal. Realtors can now avoid the risk of discoveryby facilitating the offer/acceptance process withspeed, ease, confidentiality, and accountability byusing Registered Email®messages and taking advantage of the electronicsignature statutes.
