Residential Real Estate Property Transactions:

Purchasing a home, residential investment property, land, or other property is a major life choice. Being possibly the largest purchase you may make during the course of your life, it is extremely important to ensure that your legal rights are protected. Equally important, is looking out for your interests when you choose to sell your home, residential investment property, land, or other property.
In a residential real estate purchase or sale, the buyer and the seller are first required to sign a written purchase agreement in order to buy or sell a home. Once signed, the buyer is then provided time to conduct inspections on the property. In addition a title property title search is performed and purchaser must often acquire the necessary financing to make the purchase. Upon finance approval, the transaction may then proceed to the closing process, which includes the real estate deed being legally transferred from the seller to the buyer. At the closing, the buyer pays the seller the balance of the purchase price, and the real estate deed is officially recorded.
