  1. This seems like a pretty exhaustive list. I guess I’d need a real estate lawyer if I ever needed to sell a single or multi family home. That must be because property transactions involve a lot of binding paperwork.

    1. Hi LNWeaver, it may be a good idea to consult with a real estate attorney if you ever needed to sell a single or multi-family home. Sometimes we find that your broker is perfectly equipped to handle the transaction. Other times, issues come up that require more complex legal assistance. We think it’s better to find out as early as possible in the transaction process, rather than days before closing.
