What is eClosing?
Learn about what eClosings are and how they provide a faster, transparent, error-free process for all closing participants.
Types of Digital Mortgage Closings
Digital Closing Types: You may hear terms like “wet,” “hybrid,” or “RON.” These are different digital closing types that indicate how many of the documents can be signed electronically (eSigned). Today, most lenders start with wet and hybrid closings–where a portion of the documents are eSigned. Snapdocs partners with lenders to scale wet and hybrid closings with the goal of ultimately achieving hybrid + eNote and full eClose (RON).
The borrower previews all closing documents within the Snapdocs platform, where they can identify potential errors before the closing appointment. The borrower then attends an in-person closing appointment, where they wet-sign (ink-sign) the full closing package.
The borrower previews all closing documents and eSigns the majority of closing documents within the Snapdocs platform. The borrower then attends a short in-person closing appointment, where they wet-sign (ink-sign) remaining documents that require notarization.
Hybrid + eNote Closing
Hybrid + eNote is the same as a hybrid closing, with the addition of an electronic promissory note (eNote). Both the eNote and most closing documents are signed within Snapdocs’ eClosing Platform prior to the in-person closing appointment. This is commonly called an eMortgage.
Full eClose (RON)
The borrower completes the entire closing digitally. Similar to a hybrid + eNote closing, the borrower previews all closing documents and eSigns the majority of documents within the Snapdocs platform. Instead of attending an in-person closing appointment, the borrower attends a virtual closing with a notary to electronically sign any remaining documents that require notarization.
The Snapdocs eClosing Platform and white-glove support services are built to guide lenders through the stages of eClosing maturity—from wet and hybrid to full eClose.
Lenders utilizing eClosings see upwards of $250+ saved per loan* and are able to achieve significant benefits when digitizing any closing type, including wet and hybrid loans.
