When a real estate transaction coordinator receives a ratified purchase contract from an agent, they should immediately open escrow with the company denoted on the first page of the purchase and sale, and send the complete purchase and sale agreement to the escrow and/or title officer with the to begin the process of managing the file. The real estate transaction coordinator should work with the agent to arrange for pickup or delivery of the initial earnest money deposit and send a commission disbursement to the escrow agent. Additionally, the real estate transaction coordinator sends the cooperating agent any necessary disclosures required by law.
Time Frames and Deadlines
A real estate transaction coordinator's job includes creating a time line of important dates for the real estate agent to follow, such as deadlines for loan and inspection contingency removal. A few days before a deadline, the real estate transaction coordinator will call or e-mail a reminder to the real estate agent to ensure compliance with the time lines outlined in the real estate purchase agreement. Sometimes a real estate transaction coordinator will order a natural hazard disclosure statement on behalf of the seller or schedule a home inspection for a buyer.
A real estate transaction coordinator maintains the file to ensure all the mandatory disclosures are completed and sent to the cooperating agent or broker for the client's review and approval. As each document returns by mail, fax or e-mail, the real estate transaction coordinator checks for all initials, signatures and dates before marking the disclosures as complete and filing them. Additionally, a real estate transaction coordinator calls or emails the agents and other parties to remind them of missing documents.
The real estate transaction coordinator provides a consistent, quality-controlled system to ensure the smooth and efficient management of all relevant steps necessary to close a real estate sale. The transaction coordinator should enter all critical transaction timeline dates into their calendar and ensure that a reminder email is sent to both agents as timeline deadlines are approaching. A client or agent often relies on a real estate transaction coordinator to monitor and assess the progress of the sale so that important deadlines are met and contingencies are released. Furthermore, a real estate transaction coordinator provides a preliminary audit of the file for the managing broker to review.
Once the file closes, the real estate transaction coordinator should review the file for completeness and let management know the file is closed and commissions can be paid. In addition, the transaction coordinator needs to obtain a copy of the final HUD-1 statement, review for proper credit of earnest money and put the HUD-1 in the file with the mutually accepted contract and copy of the earnest money receipt. Once this is done, files need to be brought and correctly filed in the main office.
