Royal Oak For Sale By Owner Lawyer

Getting It Right the First Time

An Experienced Law Firm Handling Your "For Sale by Owner" Transactions

Selling your own home can save you thousands of dollars in realtor commissions and fees. That said — for sale by owner (FSBO) transactions do have serious pitfalls for buyers and sellers alike and must be handled correctly.

At Melder & Melder, P.C., we represent home owners and home buyers in for sale by owner transactions throughout Oakland, Macomb, Wayne, Genesee, St. Clair, Livingston and Washtenaw counties and southeast Michigan. If you want to sell your own home or are interested in an FSBO real estate listing — we can help. Get the legal protection and representation you need by calling us or contacting us online today.

The Experience and Quality Services You Need

Our attorneys have extensive experience with preparing and filing the various FSBO-related documents required by local and state authorities, and in complying with Michigan land title standards. Some of the specific issues we deal with and services we provide include:
  • Market price research
  • Negotiation, drafting and review of purchase and sales agreements
  • Real estate contracts for deed
  • Title searches and clearance
  • Due diligence
  • Mechanic's liens
  • Insurance and escrow issues
  • Inspections
  • Real estate closings

"Won't Hiring a Lawyer Cancel Out the Cost Savings of Doing it Yourself?"

In a word, no. Take, for example, a home selling for the price of $200,000. On that transaction alone, the average realtor's commission of 6 percent will add up to $12,000. By contrast, our total fees for almost any transaction are generally far less. This translates into savings to you.

If this alone does not convince you, also give some thought to the fact that our legal knowledge and experience can work to protect your interests in many ways that a realtor cannot.
