Your attorney will ask for everything that is required in the sale--if you have an agent, he/she can also tell you what to have handy for the attorney.

The documentation you need first is the name, address and phone number of a good real estate attorney. He or she will tell you what you need to provide.

You can sell your house yourself--not so easy to sell any house in this market, by the way, but that's not what you asked--but legal part is absolutely not a do-it-yourself project in Nassau County.

Larry, If you already have a buyer for your home, your attorney will notify you of all the documents they need to prepare the contract of sale: they will ask for at least the following: copy of your deed, tax bill, survey (if you have one), any COs (certificates of occupancy) for your home. If you have any open building permits (permits where you completed the construction without having an inspection or where you changed your mind and never completed the project). If you do not have a buyer, I would STRONGLY recommend hiring a realtor. Trying to sell on your own would not be at this point in the Spring market would not be a wise financial decision. If you're interviewing agents, I would welcome an opportunity to meet with you. Good luck!
