Buying a home is a very exciting experience — there are new fixtures to be bought, gardens to be started, and housewarming parties to be held. But oftentimes the process before the actual move in date can take a bit of time. In fact, this process is known to take months, which can be stressful. While the end result of buying a home is usually a great one, there are the difficulties that come up — but do you need an attorney for these instances? We break down the specifics below.
In short, a real estate agent is much different than an attorney. For many types of sales, an agent is a person who can make the process easier, advising on different situations and deal with negotiation processes, and more. These people typically can be the mediator between parties and also speak on different topics, which can help both the buying and selling party come to an agreement that much quicker. In many ways, the agent is the main point of contact for almost everything — and anything else would be left to an attorney.
The attorney’s job is simple, yet complex at the same time. They’re there to look over the transaction if necessary, and make sure that there is nothing wrong, or out of the ordinary. Should any legal issues arise during the process, you’ll need the assistance of an attorney who can help negotiate different parts of the contract which may include legal situations. Additionally, this person can be hired to simply look over documents that you’re not currently aware of.
