So I got a call earlier this week from a homeowner who is ready to list his property for sale as a short sale....great news! This is of course the normal transaction in todays market.
But what to do, the seller is ready to sell, just told me to send over a listing agreement for him to sign and never once asked about any explanation of the listing, addendum's or anything...What to do? Myself I like to explain myself to every single buyer and seller no matter what bottom line period. I go over the entire listing, purchase contract, etc. Others might see this as over kill, but hey I'm old school I guess I am the type that sits with their clients and makes sure they know what they are signing before they sign anything. This is of course their home and most likely the biggest investment of their lives...I am the type of agent who sits with their client at the signing table....
Would you expect your agent to do anyting less?
