REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
The acts of buying or selling a new home are among life’s great milestones. Whether you’re the one moving in or moving out, it’s a time of major economic and geographical change as you and your family move on to a new home and financial status. The amount of money that changes hands among buyers, sellers, agents, lenders, and brokers likely dwarfs that involved in any other transaction in most consumers’ lives, and what may seem like a slight rate change, transaction fee, or price negotiation can have enormous financial impact for years and even decades to come. At such times, you want to have an experienced real estate attorney on your side, overseeing every step of the home buying, selling, closing, or refinancing process to make sure your financial and personal interests are honored. Whether you are a buyer, seller, or agent, the real estate lawyers at The Law Offices of Brian N. Tierney have the experience and dedication to client service to help you achieve all of your residential real estate buying, selling, closing or refinancing goals.
Regardless of their economic status, many people find themselves financially stretched during the home buying, selling, closing, or refinancing process. There is the cost of the downpayments, ever-mounting home repair costs, appraisals, assessments, taxes, and agents and other professionals to pay. Adding in the cost of a lawyer may seem like one cost too many.
Working with an experienced real estate attorney, however, may be one of the smartest financial decisions you can make in connection with a real estate transaction. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Brian N. Tierney have not just the knowledge of the financial aspects of home buying and selling, but the legal knowledge to make sure your transaction provides you with all of your rights due under federal, state, and local law, and that all legal documentation properly reflects the terms that are most advantageous to your interests.
