Local Real Estate Lawyers For FSBOS
Bare Land • Commercial • Condominiums • Court-Appointed Officers • Estate Executors • Farms • Investors • Residential
“For Sale By Owner” deals are becoming more popular by the day, in large part because of the booming real estate market in so many cities, towns, counties, and states.
Benefits And Risks Of FSBOs
At first blush, nothing could seem easier than a FSBO. Post a sign out in front of your house or property, list the property on a few real estate sites, and get ready for a horde of buyers to come and make generous offers.
In reality, however, few transactions are more fraught with potential risk and legal liability than FSBOs.
If you decide to go the FSBO route, you can potentially save thousands (or even tens of thousands) on real estate agent commissions. But if you want a clean transaction – and peace of mind – you’d be wise to invest in the services of an expert, local real estate attorney.
Disclosures For FSBOs
Every state has different disclosure laws that dictate what sellers have to disclose in real estate transactions. It’s important to comply with those disclosure requirements in order to ensure that once your house or property has been sold, the deal is done, once and for all – with no potential legal liability hanging over your head.
Real Estate Sales / Purchase Agreements For FSBOs
A well-written real estate contract, with terms clearly spelled out, is one of the keys to a successful FSBO transaction. You need precise legal language for everything from earnest money to performance deadlines, disclosures to inspection objections, title insurance to closing dates.
Disputes Over FSBO Contracts
If you and your buyer have a dispute over one of the clauses in your real estate contract, or the buyer tries to back out of the deal without cause, you’ll have trouble enforcing the contract if it wasn’t properly written.
