I use eFax. However, a fax number does not appear on my media.

When dealing with some of these banks,,,,,,they still haven't caught on to the email thing or electronic signing.

I actually think they RELY on the 'lost fax' excuse.

It's a rarely used option with me still.

E-fax. I have not used a fax machine since my last pre-foreclosure sale. Even most banks use Equator or a Cloud like it these days.

Tony and Suzanne, we use eFax for $12.99 per month for clients who may have an old fax telephone or who don't care to use a computer.  It is very easy to use for the client-no cover sheet necessary and the fax arrives as an attachment in our email.

In my personal affairs, I use TrustFax a couple of times a year in those very few instances where the receiving party hasn't caught up to the times to allow for send via e-mail.

I don't plan to offer a fax number for real estate business, and will probably just use our personal TrustFax account if I need to send something via fax.

We use onlinefaxes.com Some Sellers (for whatever reason) cannot scan and email documents to us, so that is an option for them.  Banks used to require faxing for short sales - Equator helped with that somewhat - but not completely.  And then there are the health care providers.  They are just now getting up and running with their secure portals - but prior to becoming a patient - there is no "email" option for communication - just fax.

Yes. I use metro fax. Many scenarios still require a fax, sometimes for security reasons. Almost every attorney, CPA, and title company I can think of still has a fax # listed on their business card.
