Residential Real Estate

Farmington's experienced real estate attorneys

Residential real estate

Buying and selling property, whether it's a primary residence, vacation home, or rental property is one of the largest financial investments you'll ever make and it can be one of the most stressful projects a buyer or seller can undertake.

Hiring an attorney guarantees that you will receive an expert, unbiased explanation and evaluation for your contract prior to making any commitments. Your real estate attorney will work to negotiate fair and reasonable terms and will help you avoid pitfalls that you otherwise may not have seen without the legal wisdom of an attorney. You may think the contract is simple and easy to understand, but it may contain provisions that are unenforceable or that create more liability than you realize. Litigating your rights after the fact can take years and cost thousands in legal fees.

About real estate transactions

Properties are normally listed with real estate brokers once a person decides to sell their home. After that, an offer is made and deposit or down-payment is given. If that offer is accepted, the realtor drafts a contract laying out the obligations of all parties involved. Once a contract has been made, this should be looked over by an attorney. Usually, a review period of about 3 days is given. After changes have been negotiated, or the  contract has not been contested, it becomes a binding, legal document.

For Sale by Owner

Some home owners choose to forgo the assistance of a real estate agent. This route can save an owner money, but it also opens them up to bumps in the road that could have otherwise been avoided. Before selling your home on your own, consult with the attorneys of Greene Law, P.C. for help.
