Buying or selling a home is one of the largest transactions most people are ever involved in. Due to the potentially complex nature of real estate law, there are many steps that must be completed in a real estate transaction, and there are numerous potential pitfalls that must be avoided.

Without question, one of the most important steps in the real estate closing process is the title examination. You may wonder why this is such a crucial point, that too often and unfortunately becomes an oversight. If the title search does not come back clean, the seller will need to address any liens or other legal barriers before the property can be sold. What is already a lengthy and laborious process can extend even further, without the proper experience and attention to detail by an experienced attorney specialized in real estate matters. With that being said, having a thorough understanding of each of the terms and conditions of your real estate transaction is also a very important factor for the success of your impending deal. To avoid any unnecessary surprises that may burden you (financially or mentally), it is important for you to know exactly what you are getting into and how much it will cost you, so that you can plan accordingly, and make any necessary adjustments to your daily life in the meantime — ensuring the long term success of your real estate decision.
During a real estate transaction, there are many complicated steps that must be followed in order to maintain proper legal standing, and do your due diligence in following your local and regional regulations regarding your purchase or sale.
