Remotely notarized transaction documents could be a reality in the not-too-distant future. The National Association of REALTORS®’ Board of Directors, at its Monday meeting, adopted a policy to support allowing parties to use remote notarization technologies. The association will work with other interested groups and federal agencies to make that a reality.

The meeting closed out the 2018 REALTORS® Conference & Expo, the nation’s largest real estate trade show—a five-day event that featured hundreds of education and NAR governance sessions, as well as more than 400 exhibitors. More than 20,000 REALTORS® and guests attended the event in Boston; it’s the first time NAR visited the city since 1929.
