(If you are looking for steps on how to become a notary, please click here.)

Before getting started, do some market research. This is to ensure that your business has the best chance of thriving. How is the real estate marketing doing in your area? Will you be able to find enough work? How many other signing agents are already working in your county/neighboring counties? If there are many others, it might be harder for you to get business.

When you are ready to take the plunge, follow the steps below:

  • Take a loan signing training course and pass the exam.

  • If your training course package didn’t include a background check, select a provider to run your background check. Ensure that it is SWP-compliant.

  • Purchase errors & omissions insurance.

  • Purchase your signing agent supplies.

  • Start registering with signing services and marketing your business!
