Experienced For Sale by Owner Property Lawyer
Sellers are eager to maximize their proceeds at closing when selling their homes. This can be particularly challenging in tough economic times. Some homeowners are choosing to sell their property independently without the help of a real estate agent. For sale by owner (FSBO) transactions can be profitable for sellers who avoid paying a real estate commission or limit the commission to the buyer’s agent but avoid the seller’s side.
Without the assistance of a seller’s agent, FSBO sellers and buyers need assistance with contracts, titles and closing matters. I am Denver real estate attorney Jay Pansing, and I have more than 40 years of experience representing sellers and buyers in FSBO transactions. I bring structure to FSBO real estate transactions to make sure that the seller or buyer (whomever I represent) is protected with regard to all aspects of the transaction. Contact my office online or call me at 720-496-4740 to schedule an appointment.
Representing Denver Sellers in FSBO Transactions
Selling property can lead to legal and financial implications. Engage an experienced Denver FSBO lawyer to help protect your legal and financial interests in the sale of your property. When you work with me, you will remain in control of your sale. My job is not setting the price of the sale or pressuring you into selling at a certain time of year. Instead, my main priorities are avoiding legal pitfalls and maximizing your financial result when you sell your property.
I offer a comprehensive understanding of real estate transactions, which are riddled with extensive paperwork and legal complexities. I will guide you through the complicated process by creating structure to the sale. Initially, I will make sure the contract is set up properly; then, I will handle other important details, including:
- Title insurance
- Purchase agreements
- Legal compliance with Colorado’s lead paint and other required disclosures
- Property inspections
- Transactional paperwork
I am committed to protecting your best interests so that you can effectively sell your home independently.
Protecting Buyers’ Interests in FSBO Transactions
Whether you are looking to purchase a single home, town house or condo, this is a large investment. Enlist an experienced real estate attorney to protect you from any legal or financial implications.
At my law office, I offer an extensive background representing buyers in FSBO transactions throughout the Denver metro area. I will review the terms of your contract, making sure that proper contingencies are addressed. A key part of my work includes pushing for appropriate inspections to disclose any property damage. I will suggest a clause in the contract providing that, even if the loan is not available at closing, you are entitled to get your earnest money back. I will also make sure that the title work is done properly. If requested, I will interface with the lender to review the financing.
