Hello Irma and thanks for your post.
As Lance noted below--and he's absolutely correct, by the way--as a buyer, you need to be protected and the only way to do that is by having your own agent and representation. While having an attorney is highly recommended, if you're the FSBO or For Sale By Owner seller, few attorneys (even the real estate attorneys) have enough experience actually selling homes to correctly navigate a real estate transaction. Real estate attorneys not normally participate in sales, so they can and often do not have access to CAR or California Association of Realtor forms or local disclosures that can be important to protecting your rights as a buyer.
To ensure that your right are protected, that you offer a price commensurate to the value of the home, and that you're provided with expert guidance through the home sale, always work with a Realtor knowledgeable and experienced in your geographic area.
