Those who work in the real estate market know the amount of documents and bureaucracies that need to be attended to in order to make a sale. Therefore, the broker must keep in mind the importance of the organization in its work routine and when it comes to managing contracts.
To help you with this task, we have prepared this article with some important tips. Read to the end and perfect your work!
Pay attention to the details of the contract
The contract must be clear and objective. Remember that it will be consulted if there are differences between the parties, so avoid adopting an inappropriate and ambiguous language that can, precisely, generate debates.
The contract should describe the negotiation, so that anyone who reads the document can understand the rights and obligations of each of the parties involved. Therefore, each contract is unique. Never use the same document for all negotiations.
Another important point is to understand that the contract cannot be above the law. In some cases, clients propose clauses that violate current legislation. It is up to the broker to instruct his clients about this. If you are not sure about a clause, seek the advice of a real estate attorney.
Organize these documents
Each completed deal results in several pages of documents. Organizing them is essential to avoid future inconvenience and loss of time during the day to day.
An interesting tip is to scan these papers and save them in some cloud service, like Google Drive, for example. That way, you will be able to access them with peace of mind and print only what is necessary.
If you work in partnership with a real estate agency or other brokers, you may need to have these files printed. Even so, be sure to have scanned copies.
Know the necessary documentation to close the deal
An inexperienced broker can create problems by improperly guiding his clients, causing them to waste time and money searching for documents that are not necessary for that type of business.
Therefore, talk to more experienced professionals, seek partnerships with companies that already operate in the industry and research the differences between each type of property.
Some cities, for example, require environmental reports for the purchase and sale of urban land. This is a specific requirement that needs to be met. Visit the website of the city hall of your city and check if there is a manual or guidance guide for real estate negotiations held in the city. Another tip is worth pointing out: pay attention to the annual changes in the rates and taxes, such as the IPTU.
As we saw in this article, creating and managing contracts is very important in the professional routine of a real estate agent. An organized professional gives confidence to his clients and business partners. In addition, it is very stressful to need a document and not be able to find it or know how to get it. Some contracts can be canceled due to lack of documents.
