Is an electronic signature, faxed or printed signature on a contract binding? Or is it imperative to have a wet signature?

Not asking for legal advise just opinions.

Most companies I deal with accept electronic for everything except the hold back release form has to be original signed and notarized.

May I ask what a hold back release is?

Most of the real estate documents I have ever signed have been via fax or email. There is a clause in them about signature via facsimile.

I use electronic signatures extensively. I like to get them emailed back to me to establish provenance rather than have someone sign on my device. I don't think it's a big problem if someone does sign on your device, there are many places, including banks, that use electronic signatures.
