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.
"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."
"My wife and I were on the verge of losing our home due to our mortgage company not wavering from lowering our mortgage rate. We tried various resources and services and nothing seemed to work until I found Mr. Doucet on a web search. Mr. Doucet and Audra did more for my family then they will ever imagine. They were able to lower our interest rate from 12.5% to 5% and made life much more enjoyable. I strongly suggest retainer this firm if you are having trouble with your mortgage company because they do not back down and will fight for your rights. Thanks again!"
Steve and Jennifer H.
'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.
