Southern Maryland Best Buys

Get it in writing, get it in writing, get it in writing!

It is even about more than trust. Sadly, I had a Seller pass away this week. Gladly, I had one written authorization after the next  that were agreements or clarifications with clean out crews, subs, etc. for the disposition of items and the preparation of the property to go on the market. Also, I like a lot of confirmatory emails so eveyone is on the same page.

When trust is broken it can be devastation!Trust is a wonderful quality. It is very satisfying to have enough faith and confidence in a person or a company to take them at their word.

And most of the time, everyone involved in a verbal commitment really does mean to keep their word and to stick to it.

The problem is more one of fading memories. As time goes on there is a good likelihood that one or both parties committed to a verbal agreement simply forget the details of the mutual pact.

The act of insisting on a written agreement is not necessarily a lack of trust. It can often be an excellent “memory aid” in the event of confusion down the road.

No matter how simple or unimportant an arrangement might be, a written agreement can actually become a relationship builder, and not a friendship destroyer.

As I said, trust is a wonderful quality!

Don't let it ruin a good relationship forever.
