In 2020, remote online notarization became one of the key technologies being discussed among mortgage professionals. So what does 2021 have in store for RON?

There are many different thoughts on what 2021 could bring for the eClosing technology (and even discussions on whether you can have a true eClosing without it), but much could depend on the consumer demand in the year ahead.
