Owner financing; is it necessary to have an agent on my end or would having my own attorney look over the paperwork be sufficient? Thank you.

Help the community by answering this question:


The typical real estate sale/loan closing transaction includes Realtor, Attorney and Loan Officer. (The Loan Officer should be the most familiar with the specific eliments of the mortgage and note). Guidance from all would be helpful and any of these could obtain the assistance of the others for you.o
If you decide to call on an attorney qualify that it is a "real estate" attorney.

Neither a Realtor nor an Attorney is a replacement for each other. You should work with both.

Bernice: Many attorneys work with Licensed Real Estate Professionals. Interview several real estate attorneys who specialize in owner financing, and ask them if you need a Real Estate Broker to assist with the real estate disclosures and other necessary Real Estate Functions or if they provide the service.

I am sure that having your own attorney would suffice on your side, but I'm not at all sure if that is something that a buyer would be comfortable with (unless of course they have an agent represent them)..

Do you already have a Buyer? If not, and you need to market the property then I would highly recommend hiring a Listing Agent. However if you already have a Buyer in place then just having your attorney should be fine.
