FSBO Attorney in Hollywood


Representation in For Sale by Owner Transactions in South Florida

For sale by owner (FSBO) transactions are becoming more popular for people selling residential real estate in South Florida. With FSBO, you don't have to pay a real estate agent's commission fee. Even as today's unsteady market has realty companies promising lower and lower rates to sell your home, the savings can be significant.

In any real estate transaction, however, you need to take steps in order to protect yourself from potentially expensive surprises and delays. Even when a real estate agent is involved, many people engage the services of an attorney to make sure someone is looking out exclusively for their best interests. If you are handling the transaction on your own, it is important to consider the advantages a lawyer can offer. To schedule a consultation about FSBO representation, contact us today.

Selling your house without the benefit of a real estate attorney can be risky from a time and cost perspective. At the Law Office of Kimberly A. Abrams & Associates, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we have the knowledge and experience to assist our FSBO clients in selling their properties and maximizing their profits.

The FSBO Process

Our job begins when a prospective buyer is found. We will assist in the negotiations between buyer and seller and when the terms are agreed upon, we will draft a purchase agreement/sale contract with clear terms, free of complicated legalese. Once the contract is signed, we begin preparing for the closing. Preparing for the closing includes performing a title and lien search on the property to identify ownership, and check for liens, judgments, code enforcement violations, or open permits, etc.; obtaining a survey if required; obtaining insurance; obtaining association approval for the buyer if required, etc. Upon the clearing of the title, the closing takes place, title is transferred between seller and buyer and the title insurance is written.

Saving FSBO Clients Time and Money

By combining our real estate legal and closing services, we save our clients money, particularly those who are involved in an FSBO. There is no need to retain both an attorney and a closing agent when you come to the Law Office of Kimberly A. Abrams & Associates, P.A. as we provide both services for the price of one.
