Residential Real Estate

Edward C. Pedersen, PLLC
The buying and selling of property, whether a primary residence, vacation home, or investment property, is one of the largest financial commitments most individuals will ever make and it can be one of the most stressful projects a buyer or seller can undertake.

The Real Estate Transaction in Brief
Once an owner decides to sell a property, he or she generally lists the property with a real estate broker. After the property is listed, a "buyer" will make a formal offer that is secured by a deposit. If the property owner accepts the offer, a contract, which is usually prepared by the buyer’s realtor, sets forth the rights and obligations of both parties with regard to the sale of the property.

Why Hire a Real Estate Attorney?
Hiring an attorney guarantees that you will receive an expert, unbiased explanation and evaluation of the contract. Your real estate attorney will work to negotiate fair and reasonable terms and will help you avoid pitfalls of which you may be unaware. You may think the contract is clear and easy to understand, but it may contain provisions that are unenforceable or that creates more liability than you realize. Litigating your rights after the fact can take years and cost thousands in legal fees.

For Sale By Owner - FSBO!
Some people choose to sell their properties on their own without the help of real estate agency. While this approach can save you thousands of dollars in commission, it also can expose you to liabilities and headaches of which you were unaware. If you decide to sell a property on your own, you should consult an attorney before you consider accepting an offer.
