Many buyers and sellers of residential real estate are reluctant to hire an attorney, choosing instead to rely on form contracts and inexperienced title companies, due primarily to the misconception that a real estate attorney costs too much money or will complicate the process. Believing these misconceptions can cost you precious time and money.
It is important to remember that the purchase or sale of your home is one of the most important financial transactions in your life. No two real estate closings are the same, and there are no standard contracts.
Only an attorney can effectively advise a party on matters relating to the title and answer legal questions that often arise during the closing process. In addition, retaining the services of a real estate attorney to represent you and handle your closing often costs no more than (and sometimes less than) a title company closing.
If you or your company is in need of legal advice and/or representation for a real estate closing matter in Stuart, FL or Martin County, Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie or St. Lucie County, Vero Beach or Indian River County, Okeechobee or Okeechobee County, West Palm Beach or Palm Beach County, or surrounding areas, please call the Stuart, Florida real estate attorney of Grazi & Gianino now at (772) 286-0200.
