Selling a Home

Refinancing a Home

Common Roadblocks Home Buyers Face

More often than not, the road to homeownership is difficult to maneuver. Issues of all sorts can arise along the way, and although we are not real estate agents, we will gladly partner with your agent to get around any issues.

If you’re buying a home, here are some things worth thinking about ahead of time.

Title Issues

As your attorney, we will check for liens or open mortgages on the property you’re buying. If the title is damaged in any way, we will connect with the seller’s attorney and ensure that it’s clean before closing.

Surprises During Inspection

After your offer is accepted, you can schedule an inspection. If the inspector finds anything, you may want to negotiate with the seller to have it repaired.

The Home is Appraised to be Overvalued

If the home appraises for less than the sale price, the lender may not approve the loan. In that case, you will have to negotiate with the seller to lower the sale price or meet partway.

Ensure Your Closing is Done Right


Why do I need an attorney to buy a house?

Legally, you are required to use an attorney any time there is a transfer of title. Many problems can show up during the closing. When they do, you will have an attorney working with you that knows how to circumvent the challenges and get you into your new home.

How will I know how much money to bring to a close?

Well, that is our job. Once we have final permission from your mortgage company, we will compile all the figures. We will combine all the seller’s figures and the mortgage company’s figures and calculate your total cash to close. This information is usually not provided until a day or two before we close. Typically, it’s the day before, though. On a closing where someone is buying the home for cash, we will combine the sellers’ figures and our fees and costs and send that to you. Again, this is typically done the day before we close.

Do I need a real estate agent?

That is a loaded question because you can buy real estate without an agent. However, we would not recommend that. It’s the same reason we would tell people to hire a tree company to cut down trees or prune them. You could do it yourself, but you are in hot water if something goes wrong. It’s always better to have a professional assisting you. Real estate agents know the market and can help you get the best price for your home, whether buying or selling. Check out our social media page for our brochure on why you need a real estate agent.

What are the buyer's responsibilities?

The primary responsibilities of the buyer include:

  • deposit money into an escrow account
  • provide documentation required by the lender
  • get homeowners insurance
  • get the utilities transferred into your name
  • go to the final walk-through

“Buying a house is super scary, but we were always in great hands and we trusted them so much.”
