How To Sign PDF's using PDF Expert

PDF Expert by Readdle
Many times in real estate we need signatures fast and there is no scanner or fax machine available.  Here in Las Vegas, we also have many out of state clients that can't visit our office easily.  In those cases, we would use Docusign for electronic signatures.  However, even though electronic signatures are legal Nevada, some banks  and institutions do not accept them.  When we cant use Docusign, we use PDF Expert and an iPad or iPhone as an alternative to get signatures quickly.

Put it on the MLS
Put up a sign
