WASHINGTON RESIDENTIAL PURCHASE & SALE AGREEMENTS

Every year, many people from all across Washington seek to either purchase or make a sale of estate, family, retirement, vacation, or investment properties in the Seattle area and all across the State of Washington but do not understand the ins and outs of a residential purchase agreement. Depending on the situation, these transactions can be very complex and difficult for an owner to navigate on his or her own.

Hiring a real estate agent is one option, but an agent may not necessarily have a thorough understanding of the laws relating to real property purchase, proper training to comprehend the legalese often found in real estate documents, or the experience in real estate to best represent you as the owner.

Whether you're looking at drafting an agreement to purchase or sell real property, or simply need someone to review a purchase and sale agreement, hiring an attorney to guide you through the process can be a much more thorough, and less expensive, route to take. In a typical home sale, if both the buyer and seller are represented by an agent, the combined cost of using those agents could be 6% of the sale price of the home.

Instead of charging a commission to draft or review a purchase and sale agreement, we charge a flat fee of $1,250 to represent either the buyer or the seller from mutual acceptance through closing. Contact us today at (206) 777-1435.

Whether you are using a realtor or buying a home from someone you know, or perhaps someone you just met, we are here to help with the agreement.

In most instances we can provide this service for a flat fee of $1,250 dollars, far less than paying a realtor to represent you if you already have a particular home or estate in mind.

SELLING A HOME IN WASHINGTON STATE/FSBO

Selling your own home has never been easier, but as an owner, you’re still better off having somebody with experience in real estate agreement transactions draft or review the purchase and sale agreement to your transaction. We ensure that you understand the terms you are agreeing to, and are here to answer any questions you may have during the sale process.

In most cases we are able to represent an owner seller in a Washington State residential real estate transaction for a flat fee of $1,250. While we do not help you locate a buyer like a realtor does, we are here for you every step of the way during the sale and will help you with all aspects of the transaction, for a lot less. If you were selling a house for $800,000, traditionally you would give 3% to the buyer’s agent and 3% to your listing agent, which would be $24,000 x 2 = $48,000. That comes out of the net sales price you take home. Quite a bit more than the $1,250 we charge. Even if a buyer’s agent still took their commission, you save $22,750 using our services instead of a traditional broker.Contact us today at (206) 777-1435.
