For Sale By Owner Transactional Guidance
Are You Selling Your Home Independently?
Consider Working With a Real Estate Attorney
Many owners of real estate property are choosing to sell their property independently instead of hiring a realtor. for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) transactions can save the seller a significant amount of money, as many real estate agents get a 5% cut of the selling price.
However, FSBO sellers can run into a number of legal and transactional problems in the process of selling their home. At Beckman Feller & Chang, we support for-sale-by-owner sellers at all stages of the process. To discuss how hiring an attorney can benefit you, contact our San Francisco law office today.

Why Should I Work With a Lawyer?
Selling a home is a process ridden with paperwork and legal complexities. For this reason, many individuals choose to work with a real estate agent. However, many home sellers are mistaken when they think that the process is simplified by working with a realtor. This is not true. The process involves the same amount of paper and transactional work regardless of the involvement of a real estate broker.
