Leave No Blanks!

I always try to discover ways to keep all of us REALTORS out of trouble.  One way I have encountered (and am guilty of myself) is in the “Fill In The Blanks”.  Whether it is the listing agreement, the sales contract or the various addenda:  NO Blanks!

I am sure we have all been guilty of this at one time or the other.  The blank spaces in our paperwork are there for a specific reason and we need to remember that and make sure that we cover all areas, no matter what form we are using.  By not filling in the blanks, we are leaving ourselves open to misrepresentation, liability, or simple confusion in reference to our customers, whether they be Buyers or Sellers.  So Fellow REALTORS, be aware of what you are doing and take the time to be conscientious in our transactions.

Until Next Monday…
