Best Efforts – Reasonable Efforts: Does It Matter?

High Associates Ltd

Almost all transaction documents have a provision or two requiring a party to exercise an effort to achieve an end. Sometimes the provision requires the party to exercise “best efforts” to do so.

Is there an ascending level of these efforts? Does it matter which words are used to describe the efforts?

Superforecasting: How to Ensure a Successful Closing

“Superforecasting: How to Ensure a Successful Closing” is the eleventh and final step in our key issues in all real estate transactions.

At closing, the final stage of a real estate transaction, missing even the smallest detail can have a critical impact on the overall success or failure of the deal, as well as client satisfaction. It is the responsibility of the broker to carefully coordinate and manage these final steps to ensure a successful transaction. In order to do that, one must learn to “predict the future.”

The Future of Your Deal. Does it Have One?

“Qualifying of Prospects Interested in the Property” is the eighth step in our key issues in all real estate transactions.

There are three basic questions in selling commercial real estate. One, who has a property for sale? Two, who wants it? And three, are the parties qualified to transact the sale? This sounds easy enough, but with many issues involved in negotiating real estate transactions, future problems may arise that prevent a deal from closing.

What is it that I currently believe that is false?

"Researching The Subject Property Information" is the fifth step in our key issues in all real estate transactions.

Those boxes of 64 perfectly sharpened rods of colored wax along with a new coloring book transformed a rainy Saturday into a colorful journey of imagination. The greenies were, by far, my …
