Modernizing The Real Estate Transaction Process ReengineeringThe Consumer Experience Travis Wright
POSITIONING STATEMENT AND PURPOSEFor years, the consumer experience in real estate transactions has been the consequence of a collage ofdisconnected service providers, product vendors and regulatory agencies. Each of these entities inserts theirrequirements and demands into the transaction process, often to the apprehension of the consumer and theother participating service providers. Individually, many service providers make efforts to improve their ‘slice’ ofthe consumer experience which falls within their control, but most often these improvements areuncoordinated with efforts made by service providers in other sectors.Now, a volunteer group of industry stakeholders seeks to enhance the consumer experience by approachingthe issue from another perspective. We believe that by galvanizing industry trade groups, data standardsbodies, private-sector industry market leaders, regulatory agencies and consumer advocate groups into acollaborative voice with shared interests, that together we can design and promote the Modernization of theReal Estate Transaction Process.By re-architecting the transaction process, we believe the consumer will benefit from increased transparency,process simplicity, and reduction of costs. Simultaneously, we envision transaction service providersbenefitting from improved operating efficiencies, regulatory compliance and risk reduction while serving theconsumer in the new process.Transparent property rights are an essential component for prosperity and economic growth in the UnitedStates. Given that, we acknowledge that there exists a number of standards organizations and tradeassociations working to improve the real estate transaction experience, but that no single organization has thescope or resources available to reengineer and modernize the entire real estate transaction process.What needs to come about is a framework and unifying structure to provide common linkage among leadingstandards organizations, trade organizations, and public and private sector leaders. This, then, becomes oneof the chief goals of this Modernization group.
