According to the company, lenders who use Snapdocs typically see more than 80% of their hybrid closings successfully eSigned. The lenders are also able to shorten the closing process by two days and reduce the closing appointment to just 15 minutes.

Snapdocs has seen tremendous growth in the last year. Over 5% of all U.S. real estate transactions currently take place via Snapdocs’ digital closing platform.  

Snapdocs’ revenue has also increased by 90%. 

Beyond that, the company’s workforce has nearly doubled in size within the last year, growing to more than 90 people. Snapdocs also expanded outside of the San Francisco Bay Area for the first time, opening a new office in Denver, Colorado in September 2019.
