If it’s been a while since you’ve bought or sold a house, you’ll be surprised how little actual paperwork there is now. The trend is paperless transactions, meaning documents are viewed on your computer and you may not have any hard copies. It can be a little intimidating, but your Mel Foster Co. agent can help you navigate your digital options. Here are a few things to discuss with your agent:
1. How will you communicate with me: by phone, e-mail or text? Let your agent know what you are most comfortable with and you will be accommodated.
2. Can you walk me through opening documents on my computer and how to sign digitally?
3. Can I get paper copies of everything if I don’t use a computer?
Don’t be afraid to ask your agent for help and don’t feel pressured into storing documents electronically if you would prefer to have them physically. Mel Foster Co. has several Senior Real Estate Specialists® that might be a good fit with your technology comfort level.
