Selling a home is a complicated legal process that effects your legal rights and liabilities. As a experienced provider of real estate legal services, Mulfinger Law Group can assist with all phases of the transaction, from getting ready to sell, including preparing the required disclosures and listing package, to reviewing offers and drafting contracts, answering your questions, and sharing our extensive knowledge of the real estate industry.The cost is a one time flat fee that covers the selected service until you sell your home. Generally we can handle everything through phone, fax and email so it does not matter where you are located. You are welcome to come to our office if you like, but in most cases it is not necessary.
At Mulfinger Law Group we offer a document review service which includes providing the necessary disclosure forms, assisting with a listing package and all of the consultation and counseling aspects detailed in the Document Preparation service below. We answer all of your questions and offer our advice about negotiating a real estate sale as below, but here you need to have the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) forms necessary, or receive an offer on MLS paperwork. We do not draft the forms for you and the contract must be on the MLS paperwork, which is the case with the vast majority of transactions. When you receive an offer we review it for you and then we discuss the paperwork and the process. We make sure you are protected and have provided the necessary disclosures and forms required by law. We explain what is in the contract documents and how that impacts your interests. We answer any questions you may have about the offer itself, the paperwork or the selling process so that you can fully understand the contract. The fee includes review of all offers you receive until you accept one and the house is under contract, and you are free to ask me follow up questions throughout the transaction which includes questions about the inspection and the closing process.
