Deadly Mistakes of Real Estate and How to Overcome Them

How many times did you work with perfect, “pre-approved” buyers, showing them various purchase options for weeks, or even months, only to learn that the transaction will not close in the end?

This short series of articles aims to highlight some of the most common pitfalls that realtors, loan originators and customers repeatedly fall for, demonstrates how to overcome them, and ultimately shows how to increase the closing rate.
