Buying a Home

Buying a home is one of the most exciting times in a person’s life. It is also one of the largest investments a person can make. Once you have found the house of your dreams, you have to go through a few steps before you get the keys. It is important to have an attorney to guide you through the process who will protect your rights and interests through one of the most momentous times in your life.

Selling a Home

When you are selling a home, there are many factors to consider and variables you may face. Once you have found a buyer, you should consult with an attorney to protect your rights through the process and ensure that your interests are met when you finally hand over the keys. Though you may be selling your home for a variety of reasons, it is important to have someone help you navigate the process.

For Sale by Owner

Across New York, selling a home without the services of a real estate agent has become increasingly popular. When you once needed a real estate agent to get the word out about your property, you now can advertise across many mediums, including the internet, at a fraction of the price. If you would like to sell a property without the assistance of a real estate agent, you will have to be willing to do everything the agent would take off your plate, including marketing, salesmanship, and the time and effort it takes to successfully sell a home. Having an experienced real estate attorney is in your best interests.

Commercial Real Estate

Commercial real estate transactions are complex and come with significant financial consequences. Buying or selling commercial real estate is a huge task that needs the experience and skill of an effective, seasoned law firm. Whether you need an attorney to guide you through negotiating the terms of a commercial real estate transaction or securing the proper permits for a building, Marc Scollar, Esq. can help.

Double Closings

For many, buying a home is contingent on selling the old one. When you need the proceeds from the old property to buy a new house, you are juggling many variables that can impact and even ruin the process. Many who are familiar with real estate have heard of the term “double closing.” This is when you buy a home on the same day you sell your old one. In the best circumstances, you would close on your old house in the morning and close on your new house in the afternoon.

Short Sale

Unfortunately, some individuals and families are seriously impacted by the real estate market and the economy. In many situations, people are stuck with a mortgage that is worth more than the property would sell for on the market. Some were swindled by dangerous financing schemes. Others bought at the top of the market and have seen their property’s value plummet. Regardless of the situation, when a property owner needs to sell their home, they may be faced with the reality of a “short sale.” Our firm is ready to assist you through this real estate matter with compassion and effective legal support.
