Let's face it, life has become a bunch of abbreviations. In our personal lives, our business lives and on-line. Seems you can't get away without them. Or do w/o them.
Where would we be without abbreviations? They certainly can save time in our writing, and acronyms for companies, organizations, places, and so on become part of the branding. And some abbreviations even serve the purpose of allowing us to swear without actually doing so.
Our real estate paperwork is CA is a good example - we have an RPA, RLA, DA, AD, CR, WO, AVID, BIA, SBSA, WP, SPQ, TDS, VP, to name just a few of our MANY forms. C.A.R. will have more, no doubt. N.A.R. won't care. WCR may. The AOR will make a big deal of them. That will drive my TC nuts. Not my VA. TS. That's the 411 on forms.
Plus real estate and the mortgage industry is loaded with abbreviations - LTV and COE (that has two meanings, U kno), PMI, PITI, CMA, RPA, NOD, VA, FHA, DU (not DUI), USDA, POF, FICO, HOA, PUD just for starters. We all kno BA and BR, LVRM, FM, W/D, SF, as do consumers. Buyers, R U ... more
