Boulder For Sale by Owner Attorney | Boulder FSBO Lawyer
In my experience as a Boulder real estate attorney who routinely helps buyers and sellers handle real estate transactions, it has become clear an acute understanding of the law, an eye for detail, a strong work ethic, and broad experience are necessary to identify and resolve the wide variety of complex legal and practical issues that may come up in any given real estate transaction.
With extremely high demand for residential real estate by home buyers and investors, and very low housing stock throughout the Denver-Boulder area, prices continue to climb. At the same time, interests rates remain low and are only anticipated to rise over time. People all along the Front Range understand the propriety of selling and buying right now.
If you are thinking about selling your home, you are likely weighing your options. Should I hire a real estate broker? Should I hire a lawyer to help me keep everything going smoothly? Should I sell my house myself? The answer is not always simple, but there are a number of factors to keep in mind when making your decision.
If your property is in a high demand area the answer to whether you should sell your house without the help of a real estate broker may very well be ‘yes’ but some areas are experiencing higher demand than others. For instance, during peak season in Boulder City it is not unusual for a lower to mid-range house to receive multiple offers the same day it goes on the market, in cash, sometimes sight unseen, and for well above asking price. Not every area is in as high of demand as Boulder, but if you live in a neighborhood with a considerable amount of pedestrian or vehicle traffic and the comparable houses around you are typically under contract within 24 hours, it is likely that you would not need to pay a commission to a real estate agent to sell your house when all it may take to get offers is a ‘for sale’ sign in your front yard and minimal advertising.
If you have thought it over and are confident you can sell your property without a real estate broker, in almost all cases it is ill-advised to handle the transaction and closing process without the assistance of an attorney. Too much can go wrong if you do not have an experienced real estate attorney making sure everything is done properly and on schedule. If you want to sell your house yourself but want to make sure you are doing everything the way it should be done, give us a call. We can help.
