Who's responsible for shortening the real estate transaction?

  • Brad Inman points out that a real estate transaction taking months to close is ridiculous.
  • And I agree with him that we’re not doing enough to make the transaction easier or better.
  • He’s identified the right problem, but he might not be addressing the right audience in agents and brokers.

Brad Inman says we need to improve the real estate transaction. He’s right. The only question I have is who the “we” is. Here’s what I mean. Inman argues in “Why homesellers demand better than a shaky real estate labyrinth” that the growth of well-funded “we will buy your home for cash in three days” companies such as Opendoor point to a screaming need in the industry to simplify the real estate transaction.
