CONTACTLESS CLOSING: While many of the traditional steps in the home-buying process have moved online, signing the closing papers has always required meeting with a notary attorney, or title agent...until now. Video notaries have arrived! I just had my first closing with a title company that offers remote online notarization (RON). The house was in Wesley Chapel, the seller was in California, the buyer was in Texas, and the title company was in St. Petersburg. Now you can close from the comfort of your home, your office, or wherever you happen to be in the world. Welcome to the new age!
