The all important day of days, the one where a real estate closing takes place.
Or will hopefully because they can be planned, pushed ahead, derailed indefinitely. But like any procedure, there are tried and tested methods to increase the odds of a real estate closing day staying alive. Not dying on the conference room table.
First and foremost, people care about themselves.
Have manners and for a spell of time care about you too as long as nothing interferes with number one who comes first.
They make plans, don't want their life on hold too long.
So the longer a real estate sale drags on, the chances of it failing rise rapidly.
Warm and friendly turns to cold and snarky.
The meters and dials need monitoring and what to expect is discussed before it happens and anyone was left in the dark.
There is a Maine expression, probably from some crusty guy or gal living on the coast that goes something like this. "It is hard telling without knowing".
Translation, "you don't see quick sand, red flags waving without the lights on." Communication is critical and to be as assurate as possible it must be current, pertinent, is time sensitive big time.
