Types of eClosing Software and the Benefits They Offer

Eighty-seven percent of lenders agree that eClosings are faster and cheaper than traditional mortgage closings. According to National Mortgage Professional, lenders can save up to $444 per mortgage loan with eClosing.

But what exactly is eClosing and how does it streamline processes? Learn more about the types of eClosing software.

What is eClosing Mortgage Software

With eClosing software, it lets borrowers close mortgages partially or completely online. Which removes the need to visit a physical location to sign documents associated with the homebuying process. You can consider eClosing software to be a self-service tool that lets users access services online at their own convenience.

What Are the Different Types of eClosing?

There are three types of eClosing:

  • Hybrid eClose
  • Full eClose
  • RON + Hybrid

Hybrid eClose

A hybrid eClosing happens when a borrower signs some documents with electronic signatures and other documents wet-sign. Documents that need a witness or notarization generally require a wet signature. Research from the Stratmor Group shows that 43 percent of lenders were able to execute hybrid eClosings in 2020 – up from 8 percent in 2017.

Full eClose

A full eClosing occurs when a borrower signs all real estate documents electronically. The borrower doesn’t have to physically meet with a loan officer – including those that require notarization or a witness.

Remote Online Notary (RON) + Hybrid

A remote online notarization (RON) provides convenience where notary required documents can be electronically signed by the borrower in a secure video call ceremony with a notary. SimpleNexus, an nCino Company, delivers the power of a complete digital closing solution with hybrid and RON eClosing capability. This solution strengthens borrower and partnership relationships, support workflows for closing teams, faster delivery to the secondary market, and provides a premium, high-touch borrower experience. As of 2022, 41 states now allow remote online notarization.
