Hire a professional -before- selling or buying.
I get a FSBO phone call, asking if the disclosure forms for a land lot sale are the same as the disclosures for a residential sale. Had the seller hired a real estate agent, that question would be totally unnecessary.
It is interesting that some home owners and land owners are all gung-ho to sell their property without having representation. The first thing they do, however, is call a professional to ask questions when stumped.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda!
It’d be silly to consider doing my own taxes due to a sheer lack of knowledge, so handing them over to a CPA to do them correctly is the right thing to do. That way, I avoid the 'trouble ahead' scenario altogether.
People think they can save money by using some national sites to obtain market values. Those forums lack local insights and contain erroneous information, leading to potential appraisal problems and so on.
Why would anyone trust their greatest assets to that? The seller’s frustration was palpable and I could not help unless an agreement was made to allow me to fully represent her in the sale of the land in writing.
