One of the things I've found over the years is that a transaction process list can be very personal and also differ from transaction to transaction.

I use a modified version of the one in my CRM, Top Producer. It keeps me on track.

I have a critical date list and an escrow flow chart. E me with contact info to shoot them over. They can be a blueprint. Nina Hollander is right, though. Just a guide to create what would be a very elastic, fluid document.

Jason Gibb it varies from state to state. I do have all my documents that I discuss with the buyers in MA.

I track the contingency removal dates and I have a small list of paperwork I have to have in.  Other than that, nothing.

sounds like you're using Infusionsoft, or something similar. I've built the transaction workflows in IFS before, feel free to email me and I can tell you the mistakes I've made.

One of the big ones - starting with too much complexity.

Keep the steps simple at first - maybe start with contingency deadlines/milestones only. As you build it, leave 10-20 steps in between each simple step, then add as needed. It's harder to delete than it is to add, messes up the pipeline reports pretty badly and clean up is painful and expensive.

It may be different in different states. It is best to go over all your transactions for last couple of years and see what you learned from them.

I find lots of good information and checklists on Lab Coat Agents on Facebook. They might have what you are looking for there, or at least give you some ideas.

I have mine but it is particualr to my area, lenders and title closers. I really suggest developing your own even if it is through trial and error.

I've written my own and incorporated it into Top Producer for a few different types of transactions.  It wouldn't do you any good as it is very localized for me.
