Can you close real estate deals efficiently?
Real Estate Transactions provides a system for collecting and organizing client information so that real estate dealings can be completed with efficiency. The system uses a Master Information List (MIL) that divides a real estate transaction into a seven-step process, and tracks each step to ensure effectiveness. The book is designed to be used in conjunction with the standard real estate forms currently in use in Wisconsin, and provides numerous sample clauses for contingencies, warranties and representations, and other provisions.
Stay on track with the System
To further help things move along smoothly, the System book contains many worksheets, checklists, and sample forms to help you keep real estate information organized. And each item of information is assigned an MIL number as it is gathered, so you have effective control of the process. To guide you, each step is accompanied by narrative descriptions of the tasks associated with that step
