Selling Your Home? Avoid Common Pitfalls With Attorney Al On Your Side

Selling Your Illinois Home

Selling a Home in the Chicago Metro Area or Surrounding Counties

Your home is likely the most valuable asset you own. If you are looking to sell, it is important to ensure your financial interests and legal rights are fully protected. Since 1994, Attorney Al Beaudreau has led our firm in closing more than 7,000 real estate sales for our clients, totaling over $1 billion.

Every real estate sale is different. You may be interested in a short sale or maybe you want to sell your home in order to purchase a newer home. By discussing your unique goals and concerns, we work to determine the best possible approach to your transaction. We can advise you of your options and can help ensure that the sale goes as smoothly and swiftly as possible.

Some of the issues that we can address in regard to your sale include:

  • Ensure that the brokerage agreement is correct and properly signed.
  • Ensure the seller is not held liable for a commission if the sale does not go through.
  • Ensure that the seller will not be liable for more than one commission.
  • Ensure that the brokerage agreement is in the seller's best interest.
  • Ensure the profitability by minimizing the tax consequences of the transaction.

Avoiding Common Mistakes in Your Real Estate Sale

Particularly in residential real estate transactions, homeowners sometimes attempt the "do-it-yourself" approach or may choose to work with a realtor instead of a law firm. These approaches put the homeowner's interests at risk. An experienced real estate lawyer can shed light on all pertinent matters related to the transaction.

At the Law Office of Al Beaudreau, Ltd., we can help you answer a wide range of legal questions, from knowing about down payments to determining whether alterations to the property were done lawfully.

The ramifications of not retaining a real estate attorney can be severe!

Without legal representation, it is possible that you may miss a key provision in your purchase agreement that will impact your entire loan. You may experience various difficulties related to the transaction or may find that you do not have a trusted professional to answer your questions as they arise.

At our firm, we represent buyers and sellers throughout Chicago in varying commercial and residential real estate transactions. We provide honest real estate legal advice and have the experience and knowledge to provide the level of counsel you need when selling your home.
