Digital closing provider notarize raises $130m

Notarize, which provides a platform that helps real estate professionals and others execute transactions with remote, digital notary services, raised $130 million in late March. The digital real estate transaction has become a hot commodity in recent years as everything become more remote and the needs for digital solutions to support physically distant activities have increased. The all-digital real estate transaction is not here yet, but companies such as Notarize, and their investors, are pushing hard to realize important segments of it.
