Welcome to the part of our website dedicated to BREL clients! Below you’ll find important information that will help you navigate the home selling process.
Important Online Forms for Sellers
In order to have as much detail about your house or condo as possible, we’ll need you to complete the following online forms before we can list your home:
All That Paperwork
There are a lot of documents involved in selling your home and we strive to be as paperless as possible. We’ll be inviting you to an online document sharing cloud service called Docusign Transaction Rooms (formerly Cartavi), where you’ll be able to access all the documents about your sale (and create a zip file of them all at closing time). DocusignTR is completely confidential and safe. It also allows us to share relevant documents with your banker and your lawyer and eliminate back-and-forth scanning, e-mailing and faxing.
We may also be signing some documents electronically with Docusign. If you’d rather use pen and paper, that’s OK – but many of our clients enjoy the simplicity of electronic signing (no faxes, no scanning, no running to Kinkos).
Important Legal Agreements (in Plain English)
There’s a lot of legal jargon in the ‘official’ agreements, so if you aren’t a lawyer, take the time to familiarize yourself with the documents in plain English before it’s time to sign on the dotted line:
Listing Agreement – this is the document where you agree that Sage Real Estate and the BREL team will “list” (sell) your home
Agreement of Purchase and Sale (Houses) – the offer in plain English (for houses)
Agreement of Purchase and Sale (Condos) – the offer in plain English (for condos)
