Not in writing, not enforceable. Real Estate contracts. “Statute of Frauds” 

Isn’t this the first thing every real estate agent learns in school?

Isn’t that the most important thing a broker can teach you?

At one point I had 50 flyers all over my office walls, just saying

Statute of Frauds, not in writing not enforceable.

My Realtor can repeat this in their sleep.

Why is it that I still (and this week top it all) hear from other Real Estate agents

“But we told you”

“But we thought”

“But we wanted”

“But we understood”

“But we figured”


This is a reminder to everybody, if you do not want to hear all the BUTs, put it in writing and have it signed. Nothing easier than this. Real Estate is a serious business, we owe it to our buyers and sellers to do it right, not to just assume or think or . . . . ..

Anyway, I hope I am the only one that runs into this priblem all the time.
