Planning to sell your home “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO)? Perhaps you already have a buyer and do not need to market your home, so will not be using the marketing services of a real estate agent. You will still need to have an attorney prepare and review the purchase and sale documents and to advise you during the escrow period. A great way to make sure that your transaction goes smoothly is to employ an experienced real estate attorney to oversee the transaction and help you avoid common mistakes owners may make when selling their own homes.
Real estate law is a product of both Washington State case law and statutes, so is a dynamic area of law that is subject to change, as real estate laws are frequently rewritten and amended. It is important to be aware of current law as it applies to real estate transactions. For example, disclosure requirements are your responsibility as the Seller. You should be aware of the importance of these disclosures and how you can protect yourself now and in the future. Experienced and thoughtful advice from a real estate attorney can ensure that your sale is in complete compliance with all relevant laws and certainly, well considered legal advice will benefit you even after the sale.
If you choose to sell your home on your own, consider hiring DAL Law Firm to prepare the purchase documents and advise you regarding the sale. From the preparation of real estate purchase contracts that meet all the current laws, to advice regarding proper disclosure, and even the financing documents if necessary, your real estate attorney’s contributions will make him or her an invaluable member of your team.
