For Sale By Owner Real Estate Attorney Sea Girt NJWhile many states by law require the involvement of realtors in the sale or purchase of a home, New Jersey is not one of those states. While some people may feel hesitant to undertake such a complicated and life-changing process without a realtor, a “For Sale By Owner” real estate sale or purchase is certainly possible, and even comes with its own benefits which may be preferential to you.

As with any real estate sale or purchase however, and even more so in a for sale by owner transaction, it is highly recommended that you work with an experienced and knowledgeable real estate attorney in order to protect your financial and legal rights and interests. Real estate attorneys can help buyers and sellers in many different ways during a real estate transaction (discussed in the sections below), and are especially important in any for sale by owner deal.

Wall NJ Real Estate Contracts Lawyer

When a home is bought or sold, it is done so according to the contract signed by the buyer and seller. In fact, the reason that most people choose to work with a real estate attorney lies in the importance and complexity of any given real estate contract. For example, real estate contracts will outline everything from:

  • The purchase price of the home
  • The deposit amount, to whom the deposit is paid, and under what terms the deposit is no longer refunded
  • Mortgage contingency
  • Mortgage commitment from the lender
  • What else is included with the sale/purchase of the property (i.e. appliances, fixtures, outdoor structures)
  • Which deadlines are “of the essence” (which deadlines must be met exactly to-the-date)
  • and much more

Part of a realtor’s job is to draft this contract used to describe and outline the entire real estate transaction process. However, most realtors will use a stock contract, and only update specific parts of the contract as needed or requested. In a a for sale by owner, your real estate attorney will draft the contract for you.

This is one of the principle advantages of a for sale by owner real estate deal – the contract can be tailored to the exact needs and situation of the buyer, seller, or both from the get-go, providing a greater level of flexibility and customization than otherwise. If you want to customize different aspects of your real estate contract, and ensure that these requirements are legal and binding, our Wall NJ real estate contracts lawyers are ready to help you today.

Monmouth County For Sale By Owner Advantages

Beyond the greater level of flexibility and customization that a for sale by owner real estate contract can provide, there is of course the added savings when it comes to a realtor’s fee. Of course, not paying for a realtor comes at the expense of not having their unique insights and expertise when it comes to questions like “How much are other homes in this neighborhood selling for?” or “Are property values in this area on the rise, or in decline?”.

This is why there are both advantages and disadvantages to selling a home as for sale by owner. At the end of the day, it is your decision, so it is important to understand your options and what is at stake in any for sale by owner real estate sale.
