MLS (Multiple Listing Service)

Is it necessary for me to hire an attorney to sell my own home?

In most real estate markets within the United States, a Title Company can handle every aspect of a real estate transaction. However, many customers hire a Real Estate Attorney to protect their interests throughout the real estate transaction. A lawyer can act as an escrow agent for down payments, evaluate any complicated offers from potential buyers, and handle closings.

When selecting an attorney, choose one who specializes in real estate transactions, and don’t be afraid to shop around for competitive rates.
