What is Contract
to Close?

There are two elements to the Contract to Close phase, depending on whether you’re representing the seller or buyer:

  1. Seller: on the listing side, we’ll handle the tasks involved from when the offer is received through to the close date.

  2. Buyer: we’ll get the buyer representation and purchase documents prepared for you. If you’re viewing properties on an evening or weekend, we’ll prepare as much as we can so you can fill in the blanks on the Purchase Contract. Once the offer has been accepted, we’ll take care of the admin tasks through to possession.

What Are The Benefits?

We have a detailed electronic checklist to ensure every step is taken care of whether on a listing or buyer transaction. We’re experienced and well-trained in Real Estate administration, so you don’t need to commit to hiring and training your own assistant; we’re ready to hit the ground running. While we take care of your files, you can spend time with your clients, knowing that everything is being taken care of behind the scenes.

How Does it Work?

On the listing side, send the fully accepted offer to us and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll prepare and send the Conditional Sale Disclosure for signing, prepare the deal sheet for your brokerage, submit the documentation to your brokerage, diarize key dates, report as sold when firm, send documentation to your client’s lawyer, and more. We’ll make sure all of the documents are where they’re supposed to be.

For buyer transactions, once the offer has been accepted, we’ll take care of sending the documents to the buyer’s mortgage broker, preparing the deal sheet for your brokerage, submitting the documentation to your brokerage, and preparing the ROF. If you need inspections booked, we’ve got you covered. We take care of any required amendments and waivers. We’ll make sure all of the documents are where they’re supposed to be.
