Welcome back to our discussion
this month regarding all of the moving parts of a real estate transaction. We're
going to wrap up this month with a quick
insight into how real estate agents
coordinate the transaction and smooth the path
from the beginning to the end.
By now, you understand there
are hundreds and hundreds of steps in a real estate transaction from the moment
that a real estate agent and a buyer or a seller connect, setting expectations,
and moving through the process. There is very likely a checklist of items that
your real estate agent will be coordinating, helping you to get completed and
tracking of all the tasks that have to be done by other people.
You have probably experienced
or you've heard your friends talk about a real estate experience that did not
go well, either because steps were missed or communication simply didn't happen.
Typically, that's because the agent who's controlling that transaction does not
have a good system in place, including written checklists.
If you were working with
myself and my team, you could receive a copy of the
checklist that we use and it
literally is a excel spreadsheet that tracks each phase of the contract that
we've discussed, and all of the things that we have to do that our clients need
to do, and also a way to check up on all the things the other agents have to do.
There really is a system or
several systems that have to be put in place and laid out on the calendar and
tracked in a very systematic and organized way, so as you embark in a real
estate transaction. Set your communication with your agent, ask them about
their systems and their checklists, ask if you can see them because this
will help you to know all the
things that need to be done, and who is responsible for getting them done.
I hope you found this
information helpful. If you did, please reach out to me if you have any other
questions. Thank you!
