How Lenders Can Take the Next Step Toward eClosings with Settlement Partners and Investors — No Matter Where You’re Starting From
Adoption of digital closing technology has been gradual but growing over recent years. As a result, lenders across the industry are at varying stages of digitizing the mortgage closing experience for their business and their borrowers.
When the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic took hold in March 2020, lenders who weren’t prepared for digital closings had their borrowers participate in porch signings or window-separated closings, but these workarounds weren’t sustainable or scalable.
