June is the beginning of peak real estate season throughout the Chicagoland area. Warm weather and a break from some school or work obligations give homebuyers the chance to explore their options before making a real estate purchase. If you are putting your home on the market, or if you are considering selling other real estate property, you are likely already working with a realtor. However, working with the right experienced attorney can make your selling process easier and fail proof.

Benefits of Working with a Real Estate Attorney

Selling your home, land, or commercial property is a legal transaction. It is unwise to enter into the selling process without first consulting with an experienced real estate attorney. Your attorney will not only advocate for your best interests but will also assure your transaction happens without incident.

When working with a real estate attorney, you can rest assured that your interests are protected throughout the selling process. Your attorney will draft and review your real estate contract or listing agreement, as well as work as a liaison between you and the buyer in regards to any issues that arise during your property’s inspection. Your attorney will also draw up closing documents, including title transfer papers, and be there for your closing, even if you cannot attend.

Selling a home or property is generally uneventful. However, working with an attorney can be even more crucial if there are circumstances that can make a transaction more confusing. For example, your attorney can help you navigate situations of property division or if there are usage issues for a land sale.
