WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SELLING YOUR HOUSE IN PENNSYLVANIA

Spoiler alert: you don’t need a realtor for this, which means you’ll save thousands of dollars. In today’s market, it is easier than ever to sell your house without a Realtor. An attorney can help you sell your home from the beginning of advertising your home to the end by recording the deed to transfer your home.  The pros of this are many:

  • You save money, because you don’t have to pay the Realtor’s nearly 7% (in many cases) commission
  • You have fewer people in the mix, which means less confusion
  • You’ll have one point of contact throughout the ENTIRE process (trust me, this is a wonderful perk when you’re going through all the steps and paperwork of selling your house in Pennsylvania)
  • An attorney is well-versed in Real Estate law, which means you’ll be protected legally- nothing will slip through the cracks because of the Realtor’s legal inexperience that would potentially set you up for problems down the road
  • A real estate attorney will have all of the analytics, statistics and data on selling your home in your area
  • And more… the list goes on.  It doesn’t stop here!

 

A Pennsylvania Real Estate law firm with in-depth real estate sales experience is the way to go when selling your home.  Our firm has conducted over 10,000 real estate and mortgage transactions since 1996. We are a “one-stop-shop” to make your settlement smoother, less time consuming and cost-effective. Here’s a step-by-step overview of the process of selling your home and showing you how to save substantial money in the process.

 

Comparative Market Analysis

Step one.  Most people don’t know where to start with a listing price for their home.  To determine a fair listing price for your home, you’ll need to perform a comparative market analysis (CMA).  An attorney can make sure this is done to maximize what your house will sell for getting you the most money possible for your house.

Negotiating Your Sale

You’ve got an interested buyer — Perfect!  But what happens during negotiation? Will they lowball you?  Can you get the amount you’ve asked for? A Real Estate Law Firm is the way to go here.  If you’re uncomfortable with negotiations, our real estate attorneys will help you during this step. With decades of negotiating experience, we help all of our clients get the best price possible.  We know your home is important– containing years of memories most likely. You want to sell it for what it’s worth.

Closing the Deal

The “Do-It-Yourself Forms & Guides” get really overwhelming.  There is paperwork and more paperwork during the closing process.  For an investment this big, don’t risk Googling and winging it on the contracts, etc.  A skilled attorney can guide you step-by-step through the entire closing process. Our firm has done it hundreds of times. We will complete the legal paperwork and provide every form required in Pennsylvania, including the Agreement of Sale, Seller’s Disclosure Statement, Owner’s Affidavit, Deed, Affidavit’s of Consideration, Closing Disclosures, and Settlement Statements.
