As anyone who has ever purchased or sold a house, it can seem like an avalanche of documents to sign, date, submit, receive, initial, and then repeat.
Most of the documents related to transfer of ownership of the property must be signed by the seller and delivered to the buyer. It’s important to review these for accuracy and completeness. With many state and local variations, the main purchase documents in your home purchase are likely to include; the deed, bill of sale, affidavit of title or seller’s affidavit, transfer tax declarations, buyer/seller settlement statement, and the HUD-1.
In can seem overwhelming and who keeps track of all of this anyway?
At the Whit Harvey Group we have recently hired a Transactions Manager to coordinate with our agents to give all of our clients the best service possible.
As a licensed Realtor, Kim Roberts found that the part of the job that she enjoyed the most was the paperwork that went along with every sale.
“I love data, spreadsheets, checklists and all the details. It’s my favorite part of the job, so I thought ‘Why not just do that?’” – Kim Roberts
As part of the Whit Harvey Group, Kim keeps up-to-date with all current transactions, making sure that inspections are done as scheduled, and that documents are amended, sent and reviewed as needed. Having her as part of the team frees up our agents to do what they do best – selling houses. And Kim gets to do what she does best. It’s a win-win for everyone!
