FSBO ATTORNEY

We offer a three-phase service, a la carte, 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.

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 opening of escrow ..... including providing a current tax record and MLS data, as requested; preparation (unless provided by buyer) and review of the purchase contract, counter offers, addenda; referral to a Title Insurance company for escrow services and title insurance coverage; review of its Preliminary Title Report; confirmation of buyers' initial deposit; review of buyers' preapproval; verification of buyers' funds to close; opening of an escrow.

Phase 2 ... DISCLOSURES & INSPECTIONS

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

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 demands; coordinating with escrow for estimated closing statements and signing of documents by sellers and by buyers; coordinating transfer of title, possession, utilities.

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

Complimentary consultations are available by conference call and email.
