When it comes to writing the contract this is also a time that many purchasers will run and find an agent to represent them leading again to the commission issue! A seller should have either an attorney and title company employed to write the contracts, arrange closing and handle all funds, including deposits and paying off existing mortgages, sundry expenses, etc. In some cases and states a Title company will have their own attorney on staff and be able to handle all the paperwork in one location. If not sometimes it is worth asking your attorney if they can recommend a title company to work with. It is worth noting however that there may be a considerable difference in some of the fees charged by both the attorney and title company and it is worthwhile researching different companies that may specialize just in real estate and in particular have dealt with “for sale By owner”, or sometimes commonly referred to as “FSBO” properties When explained that this is all paid for and will be professionally done this will help the buyer’s confidence in the whole process. They may of course employ their own attorney, at their expense to represent them and they should be encouraged to do so.
