Whether you are a homeowner, seeking to sell your home, or a potential, qualified buyer, wanting to purchase one, it’s important to realize, this period of time, is often, an emotionally, stressful one! The combination of family memories, and the fear of the unknown, as well as wanting to get the best price, and conditions, possible, are the key ones, when selling. Being certain, the house will serve your needs, goals, and priorities, and never being, quite certain, you’ve negotiated the finest terms, and price, and hoping your family, will enjoy the area, location, and specific home, is right, for you, are what most buyers, lose – sleep, about! While the real estate attorney, you choose, must represent your best interests, and protect you, in the entirety, of this transaction, there is, a somewhat, fine – line, between doing so, and destroying, any meeting – of – the – minds! With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means, and why it matters.
1. Divide; demands; destroy; delusional; difficult: It’s possible to do one’s best, without proceeding, making things, more difficult, than necessary! Often, we encounter attorneys, who appear, somewhat delusional, making demands, etc, which make any possible agreement, even more challenging! Rather than trying to divide and create polarization, everyone would usually, be made easier, when/ if, the priority was, to protect the client, without destroying any potential deal! There are usual requirements, in a real estate contract, but when lawyers, demand extreme terms, it often, kills the transaction!
2. Evaluations; estimate: It’s important to realize, and recognize, attorneys are generally, not experts, when it comes to estimating valuations! However, when they make statements, etc, articulating an unrealistic estimate of valuations, etc, it often, makes the deal, disappear!
3. Attitude; aptitude; attention; actions: While one’s lawyer, should protect you, and your investment, etc, clients benefit when an attorney proceeds, with a positive, can – do, attitude, rather than one, which focuses, on negativity! It is generally wise, to use, specialists, in real estate law, rather than one, who has a different specialty, because their familiarity, and applicable, aptitude, permits them to focus their attention, where it might be, most beneficial! Observe one’s actions, and how cooperative, he is, in bringing about a well – considered, meeting – of – the – minds, rather than ending – up, killing, the deal!
4. Louse – it – up; lose deals: Many potential sales are killed, because a lawyer, louses – it – up, by making a challenging transaction, more difficult to control!
Most believe, you need a real estate attorney, who focuses, on getting the DEAL done, while protecting his client’s interests! When the time comes, choose yours, wisely, and carefully!
