Many homeowners choose to sell their homes without the assistance of a real estate broker, this is generally referred to as FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and can save thousands of dollars in broker fees.

Whether you are a home buyer or seller, we can help you with the legal aspects of buying or selling your home. We will draft the buy and sale contract and other documents that are necessary to formalize the transaction and move to closing for a small flat fee paid at closing.

“We did want to thank you for all your help and advice. We had never done a “for sale by owner” and were a bit unsure of what to expect throughout the entire process. Your expertise and guidance through the contract process not only put our fears at ease but saved us quite a lot of added expense had we done this with a realtor. We will certainly look to you for assistance should we go through this again.” – Jim, a For Sale By Owner Client

Do you understand the difference between Specific Performance and Liquidated Damages? As a seller would you prefer to deliver a special or a general warranty deed? What about the buyer? What kind of survey should the buy demand? When should the inspection deadline be set? What about the disclosures, the mortgage, the survey, and due diligence deadlines? Which title company should you use? What do you do if the seller or buyer wants to cancel the deal? A Contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate is a serious, legally binding contract, with many financial and legal consequences. And, it is only the beginning of the legal process of buying or selling a home. Once you have an executed contract, you still have due diligence deadlines, title reports, settlement statements, the deed, and other closing documents to consider and review.
