We think that Buyers should talk to their agents and Sellers to their listing agents...and once in a while...a Buyer or Seller decides to "expedite" the commnication and talk directly to the other agent.
Short sales can sometimes present a challenge in closing...but 30 days notice is not unreasonable when both sides of the transaction are well aware that is anticipated and have been told just that.
A Buyer had asked for information and his agent had been told the "on or about date" for closing which had also been confirmed as the "about" became an actual date. Somehow....the Buyer was unaware of the closing date. Our Sellers for almost every transaction, pre sign closing documents so that they can work within their own schedules rather than the Buyer's schedule. the Buyer is then free to choose a time and one of us will attend with the Seller's power of attorney to close the transaction.
The Buyer is not happy...he had no idea when this was closing...it is not convenient....his time is worth something...WHAT ?
Communication is key...and it is how an agent earns their commission with timely communication to the person(s) they represent.
If you or anyone you know is interested in timely and accurate communication in a real estate transaction...Call the Hansons...we are honored to be of service.
