For Sale by Owner

Legal Guidance for Selling Your Home Without an Agent

When selling a home, you may choose to do so without a real estate agent or broker. This is called “For Sale by Owner” (FSBO). There are a variety of advantages to choosing this route, the biggest advantage being no real estate commission or broker fees. It is a significant advantage to you to retain a real estate lawyer who can guide you through the process and help ensure that your sale goes smoothly.

Likewise, if you are buying a home in a FSBO situation, a legal representative can guide you and help you avoid costly mistakes. As an experienced Gainesville For Sale by Owner attorney and Licensed Title Agent, I am dedicated to my clients’ best interests. If you are considering selling your home without an agent or buying a FSBO home, turn to me for seasoned legal guidance.

My firm is skilled at achieving effective and hassle-free closings. Instead of turning to an agent or title company, choose an advocate who will prioritize your needs and best interests. Contact my firm, The Law Office of Robert J. Warren, today for your free consultation.

What Does a For Sale by Owner Attorney Do?

One of the great benefits of taking the For Sale by Owner route is that you have much greater freedom and control over the sale of your home. On the other hand, to effectively sell your home for the best deal, you will need to handle a great deal of paperwork and other potentially complex matters. Sellers should not try to do this alone. As an experienced For Sale by Owner attorney and licensed title agent, I can guide you through the intricacies of the transaction; while handling all of the paperwork and closing details. The same goes for buying a FSBO home—you will want to ensure that you are making the most prudent and informed decisions possible by retaining legal representation to review the title work, survey, title, and conveyance documents. My team and I will be right there with you every step of the way.

As your Gainesville For Sale by Owner attorney, I can assist you with the following, and more:

  • Draft, review, or edit contracts and purchase agreements between you and the buyer/seller
  • Handle the entire closing, including disbursement and issuance of title insurance
  • Avoid writing or agreeing to vague or unclear language in a contract
  • Understanding all of the legal implications involved in closing the sale
  • Review the seller’s title and title insurance

I have been in practice since 1987; and I have acquired the legal skills and experience required to help you achieve your goals. For an attorney you can trust, call Attorney Robert J. Warren at 352-377-6600.
