Why an attorney can save you money when buying property

To say that the New York City real estate market is a complex and dynamic industry is like saying that Times Square can get quite congested. In other words, it's a bit of an understatement.

Still, there are some people who unwisely try to navigate their own real estate sale or purchase without the assistance of a New York City real estate attorney. All too often, these poor souls wind up losing out on the deal of a lifetime or get saddled with a property that doesn't fit their needs.

The ways that a real estate deal can sour on the buyer or seller are far too numerous to mention in this space. But undiscovered liens, easement issues, zoning problems and mind-boggling HOA requirements can take the starch right out of even the most stalwart real estate veteran.

We urge those who are interested in either buying or selling property here in the Big Apple not to be penny wise and pound foolish. You may think that you have all of your ducks in line only to see the deal crumble like yesterday's issue of The New York Times. You can easily pay out far more than attorney's fees in a real estate closing when you neglect to loop in your real estate attorney at your next closing.

Do you really want to leave your next property sale or purchase up to the vagaries of the real estate market? Instead, call us today or reach out online to learn more about how we can assist you with buying your dream home or selling your New York City apartment.
