How a Real Estate Lawyer Can Help You Sell a Home
There are many steps that a seller must go through when they decide they want to list their home. One of the first steps is whether they want hire a listing agent or whether they want to sell their home on their own. They will also want to decide whether to retain an attorney to assist them through the home-selling process. If a seller decides to retain a real estate attorney, one of the first steps will be for the attorney to prepare the real estate contract.
After the real estate contract is prepared and then signed by both the buyer and seller, the parties will be under contract. The attorney will then assist the seller through the home-selling process. For example, the real estate attorney is responsible for making sure that all the requisite inspections are taken care of. The parties then proceed to the closing. At this point, the real estate attorney may assist the seller in making sure that everything is in order so there is a successful closing.
