Docusign Helped me close this Lake Charles Home Under Contract in 43 Days!

Homes listed for sale in Lake Charles LA typically take about 120 days to sell.  The latest Lake Charles Real Estate Market statistics is showing homes for sale in Calcasieu Parish averaging 133 days on the market.

722 Kirkman Street went under contract in 43 Days



With the low interest rates available to Lake Charles home buyers, many first time Lake Charles buyers are taking advantage.  It is rewarding to be able to see someone purchase their first home!


I represented both the buyer and the seller in the sale of 722 Kirkman Street in Lake Charles LA.  The Lake Charles seller relocated to Vietnam after listing his home for sale however communication was still very easy and convenient utilizing electronic signatures via Docusign.


Docusign is a program that allows a sender to upload documents for signature to the recipient via email.  As long as the recipients have an email address and the sender is a subscriber to Docusign this avenue of completing documents is a huge time saver for everyone involved!  I have no idea how I would have been able to close a sale and obtain signatures from the seller in Vietnam had I not been able to communicate via email and utilize Docusign for signing the contract!

Docusign is not only for distance transactions.  I have utilized this program before when working with Lake Charles investor clients who want to make multiple purchases or list multiple properties.  By sending contracts and listing documents ahead in Docusign I get signatures completed on a clear PDF document within minutes!

Selling Lake Charles real estate requires that the Realtor be informed of new technology and easy communication with clients.  This closing went smoothly but I can’t imagine what it would have been like if I was not utilizing electronic signatures!
