I’m selling as For Sale By Owner, can you help prepare the contract?
Yes, we assist many Sellers who are selling their properties without a real estate agent. We will help guide you through every step of the process.
If each party agrees to the terms of the contract, why do I need an attorney to review it?
Typically when a buyer and seller first enter into a contract, they don’t anticipate disputes or issues that could arise. Your attorney’s job is to point out potential areas of risk, to ensure you are making an informed decision to buy or sell based on specific contractual terms.
Is my earnest money deposit refundable?
The answer to this question is largely dependent upon your contract. But typically, if you are within your inspection period, you can get your full EMD back. If you are outside of your inspection period, our attorney would need to review your contract to advise you on what other arguments could be made in favor of a return of your EMD.
