FOR SALE BY OWNER ATTORNEY

We offer a unique three-phase service for homeowners and investors who elect to sell a single family residence or condominium on their own, to a buyer with whom they have been informally discussing price/terms.

If there's no one like that on the horizon, then homeowners must advertise publicly. As there is no single way to get a seriously interested buyer to the table, we offer an overview of FSBO options for selling a home on one's own.

We become formally involved, as discussed below, once that interested buyer is quite close to the table. No commission. No hourly rate. Ours is a fixed fee schedule.


Phase 1 ..... OFFER & ACCEPTANCE

Phase 1 covers transaction activity from inception to execution of a written agreement by the parties on price and terms. It includes a review of the Preliminary Title Report; providing MLS data, as requested; preparation (unless provided by buyer) and review of the purchase contract (often involving multiple drafts), counter offers, addenda; opening escrow; confirmation of buyers' initial deposit.

Phase 2 ... DISCLOSURES & INSPECTIONS

Phase 2 covers transaction activity dealing with homeowner disclosures - both contractual and statutory - and buyer due diligence; compliance with point-of-sale ordinances; verification of buyers' supplemental deposit; buyer's acceptance of disclosure documents and reports; buyer's removal of the inspections contingency.

Phase 3 ..... FINANCING & CLOSING

Phase 3 covers transaction activity from removal of the inspections contingency to closing of escrow ..... including coordination with buyer's mortgage lender or broker; coordinating the appraisal; removal of the appraisal and financing contingencies; ordering payoff demand(s); coordinating with escrow for estimated closing statements and signing of documents by homeowners and by buyers; coordinating transfer of title, possession, keys, utilities.


On a case-by-case basic we will consider representation outside of San Francisco and Marin Counties.

Clients must be comfortable with online communication.

Complimentary consultations are available by conference call and email.


All information on this site is deemed accurate but should be independently verified. In addition, some information is date sensitive.

For specific questions and inquiries on a pending transaction contact the Lawyer Referral Service for the County in which the property is located.
