THE PROBLEM

If a closing does not occur on a particular timeline, the real estate agents run the risk of not getting paid.  

For this reason, agents tend to overlook issues that that are very important to a favorable outcome for the client.  If discussed with the client, or bought out into the open, the issue may serve to delay or even cancel a closing. It’s not the agent’s fault.  Anyone who’s paycheck relies on a closing is going to naturally do what is necessary to effectuate a closing, even if it may not represent the complete and best interest of his or her client.  The system puts the agent’s interest in being paid, and the client’s interest in getting the most favorable outcome, into perpetual conflict. This conflict also regularly causes a lack of transparency that results in Buyers and Sellers feeling like they are constantly in the dark.

THE SOLUTION

FLAT FEE LEGAL PROTECTION is designed to provide a layer of protection for Buyers and Sellers that does not currently exist in the typical agency transaction.  For a flat fee of $795.00 ($295.00 direct payment to law firm, $500.00 to be paid indirectly through closing) you have an attorney in place and ready to review and discuss every document that is presented to you by your agent before you sign 

Because I am a Broker and Lawyer, I can explain not only the consequences of specific documents being presented to you for signature by your agent, but also the big picture of the entire sale transaction process. I can give you the truth and nothing but the truth.  If utilized, this service can provide dramatic leverage to you as a Buyer or Seller of real estate. The concept originated as a result of the daily phone calls I get as a lawyer regarding agency relationships that have gone bad, and homes that were purchased with material defects discovered after closing.  Unfortunately, after closing the agents have been paid, the Seller has the money, and whatever leverage a Buyer may have had has been lost.

If you are looking to have our office represent you as a listing agent, or buyer’s agent, or if you are looking to buy or sell a property without agent involvement, call our office to discuss the process and fee’s.  I will personally discuss these issues with you to get you to a point of knowing what steps to take next.
