Managing Your Real Estate Transaction          Print Friendly and PDF

Effectively Manage the Transaction to a Successful Close

You’ve set the best price, enhanced the perceived value of your house and kicked your online marketing into high gear. Potential buyers are at your threshold. And, you’re concluding negotiations for the sale of your house. Now What? This is precisely when the transaction begins; and, until the transactions closes, it's not a done deal.

There will be bumps along the road between signed sales agreement and closing. To get to closing, you and your professional team must be able to anticipate and eliminate any obstacle along the way. There are many details to manage. There are many people involved in a real estate transaction, e.g., buyer’s agent/client, home inspector, home repair contractors, attorneys, title company, loan officer, etc. There are events which must occur, timelines and contingencies which must be met and issues and problems which must be resolved. Some of which can cause your transaction to fall through - up to 25% of accepted transactions are cancelled during the closing process.

It is crucial that you effectively manage the transaction paying attention to all the details involved in getting the transaction to the closing table.  With a clear understanding of what is expected, and advanced planning to satisfy requirements and resolve problems, the likelihood of successfully closing will be greatly enhanced.
