For Sale by Owner

Legal Guidance for Selling Your Home Without an Agent

When selling a home, you may choose to do so independently 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, as well as some disadvantages. Either way, 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 mistakes. As an experienced Gainesville For Sale by Owner lawyer 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 to discuss your needs in a consultation.

What Does a For Sale by Owner Lawyer 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 go it alone. As an experienced real estate attorney and licensed title agent, I can guide you through the intricacies of the transaction and handle 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.

As your Gainesville For Sale by Owner lawyer, I can help you do the following, and more:

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

Contact me, Attorney Robert J. Warren for an attorney you can trust. I have been in practice since 1987 and have acquired the legal skills and experience required to help you achieve your goals.
