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.
"Troy Doucet is one of the most gifted attorneys that we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He treated us with kindness and generosity. We were most impressed with his integrity and high sense of duty to us. If you are looking for an attorney to get the job done we highly recommend Troy Doucet. Our family can never thank him enough for getting our foreclosure problem solved."
"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 attention to detail and professionalism that Troy and his staff brings to our contract drafting process is unmatched. It’s a rare occurrence to find a law firm that cares as much about your legal protection as you do. But, Doucet Gerling is that law firm."
* 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.
