How to Avoid Disaster When Selling or Buying Your Denton County Home

There are so many people, timelines, and events involved in a real estate transaction, that disaster can strike at any time. Hundreds of things can go wrong with the sell or purchase of your home. But a great real estate agent will know how to minimize or eliminate these ‘deal killers’.


The Easiest Way to Avoid Disaster

The easiest, but sometimes overlooked, way to avoid disaster from the beginning is to get everything in writing. I know that sounds very elementary, but there are some agents that don’t make sure the proper documents are written and signed by all parties involved. Sometimes they just haven’t been trained to know what needs to be done, and what documents to use.

 

A Handshake and Your Word

Because there are so many people and timelines involved in a real estate transaction, a handshake and your word doesn’t always translate to everyone involved. And sometimes what people hear isn’t always what was meant in the communication. Kind of like the telephone game where someone whispers into the first person’s ear, and by the time it gets to the tenth person it is a completely different message. Everyone involved, from the title company to the lender and underwriters, appraisers and others, are relying on those documents to know about timelines, etc.
