Is it better to have a cash deal or a mortgage loan?fisherstonelaw12020-10-27T15:29:44-04:00
There are definite perks to both cash deals and mortgage loans. A cash deal may be more attractive to the seller which can often lead to a discount for the buyer. Cash also forgoes many of the steps of obtaining a loan. Mortgage loans do end up costing the buyer more in the long run due to interest but a mortgage protects the buyer from overextending.
Closing on a real estate transaction typically lasts between 30-60 days. The closing period begins when the seller accepts an offer from a buyer and ends at the signing of all documents and agreements at the closing table. Having a real estate attorney makes this process much smoother and more efficient.
What is the difference between a co-op and a condo?fisherstonelaw12020-10-27T15:28:25-04:00
Although they may look the same, co-ops, or cooperatives, and condos vary in whether the resident owns the property. In a co-op, the building is owned by a non-profit organization and residents buy shares of the company in exchange for a proprietary lease. In a condo, the unit is available for traditional purchase, giving buyers more freedom by owning the actual property.
Why would I need legal counsel when buying or selling property?fisherstonelaw12020-10-27T15:27:46-04:00
In New York State, it is required by most banks to be represented by an attorney in your real estate transactions, whether buying or selling. It’s also important to note that a good real estate attorney is another line of defense in handling real estate transactions, which carry a certain amount of risk, to protect your interests.
