Buying or selling a home involves one of the largest investments (or asset transactions) you will ever make, so you want to make sure your interests are protected. Although other professionals involved in your transaction are there to help you during this process, only your attorney is looking out for your best interest.
If you are selling your home, you want to make sure inspections are managed properly, contingencies are monitored, deposits are escrowed securely and your net sale proceeds are correctly calculated and credited to you, either by check or bank wire transfer. read our Blog "How much does it cost to sell your home."
If you are buying a home, you want to make sure that all contingencies are in place to protect you against unexpected issues, repair items revealed by your inspections are adequately addressed and that you receive clear title to your new home.
Although most of our clients work with realtors, we welcome clients who decide to sell or buy on their own without using a realtor. In those cases, it is especially important to engage an experienced real estate attorney who can guide you through the process and be a resource as issues arise.
Selling or buyer real estate involves hundreds of thousands of dollars of your hard earned money - - let us guide you through the closing process and give you peace of mind.
