The Canadian Real Estate Association has signed an agreement with DocuSign giving the association’s more than 105,000 members access to the e-signature service.

CREA partnered with real estate technology company Instanet Solutions in January to provide e-signatures to its members for the first time. DocuSign, like Instanet’s online signing service Authentisign, is integrated into WEBforms, CREA’s existing online forms system to allow agents, buyers and sellers more convenient use, CREA and DocuSign said in an announcement.

Available in both French and English, DocuSign offers the ability to sign documents on any device without the need for printing, faxing, scanning or driving to get signatures, and also stores those documents in the cloud.

CREA members will be able to purchase DocuSign at an exclusive price: $199 per year with a $50 discount through the end of April. In the U.S., DocuSign offers a “Realtor Edition” electronic signature service tailored and branded for members of the National Association of Realtors, which is an investor in DocuSign, for $180 per year.

“As a national organization, CREA partners with industry leaders that offer powerful new ways for our members to become more efficient and better achieve their business objectives,” said Marc Lafrance, CREA’s director of member services and product development, in a statement.

Calgary-based paperless real estate technology provider Repree announced in January that it had signed an agreement with the Alberta Real Estate Association to provide its more than 10,000 members with free access to online forms and transaction and contact management services.

Electronic signatures powered by DocuSign are one of the paid upgrades to the service offered by Repree. The Alberta Real Estate Association is one of the 100 boards and associations that belong to CREA.
