Qualia announces Connect Video Chat
, which makes contactless home closings possible for homebuyers nationwide. Connect Video Chat can be used for remote ink-signed notarizations during home closings in accordance with state emergency mandates and requirements, as well as notarization guidelines established by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
The program enables title companies to securely launch video conferences with their partners and clients, including real estate agents, lenders, homebuyers and sellers. This real-time two-way audio/video technology can also facilitate recording an ink-based signature, and has long-term video storage functionality either on Qualia with the rest of a client’s closing documents or on a title and escrow company’s own internal servers.
“Our goal is to support our community by building products that make home closings safe, secure, efficient and affordable,” said Nate Baker, Qualia co-founder and CEO. “The launch of Connect Video Chat is an important step toward fulfilling that goal of enabling homebuyers across the country to continue to close on a home. Now they can do this ... ultimately in a safe way.”
