Why is “In Writing” so important?

When negotiating a real estate deal (or ANY deal), most professionals insist on offers and counter-offers being “In Writing”.

“In Writing” means the parties actually have to SIGN the document attesting to their understanding and agreement of the terms.

When you have to sign something, you’re more likely to READ it first.

I’d say that more than 90% of the time verbal or electronic agreements lead to misunderstanding and subsequent conflict . . . because we’re all “attention Deficit” and there’s so much electronic “noise” out there that attention to details is virtually impossible.

So . . . When it comes to important matters (Like Legally binding contracts), there’s no viable substitute for real, live SIGNED documents.

Just sayin’
