While the process of buying and/or selling a house ain't rocket science, it involves a minimum of 42 people and myriad moving parts.
Even the smoothest of deals can go wacky in the blink of an eye.
Think about the mystical reality that when a Buyer and Seller come to terms on a house sale, it Opens a Space for 42+ people to participate. All of these folks have the same goal . . . to CLOSE the transaction ON TIME! Each of these people has a unique and very important role, and timing is of the essence because the contract prescribes a defined series of tasks/events and when they must be accomplished.
Amazingly, this happens successfully for Nashville House Buyers and Sellers (and all over the world) with regularity. The Buyers and Sellers, Lenders, Processors, Underwriters, Inspectors, Handymen, Attorneys, Title companies and their staffs, Real estate agents, Movers, Utility Companies . . . and the list goes on . . . all self-organize around this common goal of getting the Buyer and Seller to the closing table to exchange Deed for Cash . . . and here's the kicker . . . THEY ALMOST ALWAYS MUST ACCOMPLISH THIS HECULEAN FEAT IN FEWER THAN 45 DAYS.
How many organizations do you know that can assemble a team of 42+ professionals from a wide variety of occupations (many of whom have never worked together in the past) to self organize around a common mission? Even more amazing is the fact that each and every one of these players is likely participating in multiple transactions ar any given time.
How does this happen?
It all boils down to effective communication.
Of course, there are times when things don't go well . . . Thankfully, these are exceptions, and the culprit of difficult deals almost always has to do with failure to communicate.
Hwy! Guess who assembles and quarterbacks these pop-up organizations?
The Real Estate Sale Professionals manage this network and keep the communication flowing to keep things moving forward.
The mantra of the Vital Few members of Pareto Realty is simple:
"COMMUNICATE - COMMUNICATE - COMMUNICATE!"
When you decide to buy or sell a house, I hope you'll hire a REALTOR to represent your interests and to orchestrate a smooth process with a classic finish.
If you happen to be moving into, out of, or within the Nashville House zone or anywhere in Middle Tennessee, we would love to communicate with you :-)
