There is a growing movement towards people listing their homes online themselves, hosting their own open houses, and finding someone interested in buying their home. When that happens, hiring a lawyer can help finalize the sale. That can save a lot of money over hiring a real estate agent because you are not required to pay 6 to 8% in real estate commissions to sell your home.
Once you have a buyer for your home, the next step is to formalize the purchase with a contract. The buyer can present you a proposed contract, or you can have your own drafted. In any event, it is a good idea to talk to someone knowledgeable about real estate law before you sign anything with a buyer.
Ohio law requires a written contract in order for real estate agreements to be enforceable. Our lawyers can help you draft and negotiate a sales contract that covers all the normal contingencies. We can also help you draft the necessary disclosures that sellers are obligated to provide to buyers in accordance with Ohio and federal law. Because our lawyers are licensed to practice law in Ohio, they are fully licensed to help you close your real estate transaction.
Using a lawyer can save you big dollars on real estate agent commissions.* The savings means more money in your pocket at the end of the day. Even if the buyer chooses to hire an agent, the commission paid to that agent can be part of your negotiations.
"I was initially skeptical of the advertised claims that Doucet is a passionate advocate for the common man, but I was quickly proved wrong. There is no hyperbole here, only truth in advertising. The firm’s philosophy truly is one of putting the client’s interest first. Randy was extremely generous with his time and evaluated my case from every possible angle. He was knowledgeable, thorough, respectful, and attentive. I would recommend him very highly without hesitation or reservation."
"The attorneys at Doucet are very knowledgeable about foreclosures and dealing with banks. Troy was able to help us even after two other attorneys failed. His payment plans help make legal services available to more people. They really care bout helping people."
"This was our first experience with foreclosure and we felt helpless. From the very beginning Mr. Doucet listened to our concerns, explained the options we could use in our defense and helped put our mind at ease. During every step of our case Troy and his team kept us informed about our options and what we could expect. They always made us feel that our case was as important to them as it was to us. My wife and I are very grateful for the hard work that Troy and his staff put into our case and would gladly recommend them to anyone that is facing foreclosure."

* Savings assumes the commission paid is less than the cost of hiring counsel. The seller must accept any reduction in sales price in lieu of paying a buyer’s agent commission.
