Why Was This List Prepared?
Surveys show that many homeowners and homebuyers are not aware of the true value a REALTOR® provides during the course of a real estate transaction.
At the same time, regrettably, REALTOR® have generally assumed that the expertise, professional knowledge, and just plain hard work that go into bringing about a successful transaction were understood and appreciated.
Many of the most important services and steps are performed behind the scenes by either the Realtor® or the brokerage staff and traditionally have been viewed simply as part of their professional responsibilities to the client. But, without them, the transaction could be placed in jeopardy.
Jim Tobin as your Realtor® seeks to close that gap.
Listed on the following pages are nearly 200 typical actions, research steps, processes, and review stages necessary for a successful residential real estate transaction and normally provided by Jim Tobin and Watson Realty Corp and for which they are entitled to fair compensation.
The list is by no means an attempt to set forth a complete list of services as these may vary within each transaction. Jim Tobin routinely provides a wide variety of additional services that are as varied as the nature of each transaction.
By the same token, some transactions may not require some of these steps to be equally successful. However, most would agree that given the unexpected complications that can arise, it’s far better to know about a step and make an intelligent, informed decision to skip it, than to not know the possibility even existed.
Jim Tobin’s Commitment
Through it all, the personal and professional commitment of Jim Tobin is to ensure that a seller and buyer are brought together in an agreement that provides each with a “win” that is fair and equitable.
