What you need to know about selling your house without a realtor

You have recently decided to list your home for sale and are trying to determine whether or not you should do it independently or with the help of a realtor in Illinois. While there are pros and cons to each, your decision to list your property without the guidance of a realtor can actually be quite beneficial to you and save you some money along the way. At Essig Law Office, we are familiar with how the real estate market works and have successfully helped many people through real estate transactions. 

How can you effectively negotiate with creditors?

You are interested in starting to accumulate properties around Illinois to turn around and sell and to rent to some great tenants. Your decision will allow you to enjoy the income that results from maintaining ownership of properties and building your investment portfolio for real estate. However, in order to buy multiple properties, you are going to need a pretty significant line of credit. Fortunately, there are ways you can go about communicating with desired creditors to give yourself a winning chance at being allowed extra funds. 

Understanding how title issues could affect a home sale

For people looking to buy or sell property in Illinois, issues with the transfer of a title can result in time-consuming confusion. Often, especially if left unresolved, these problems can become increasingly costly to work out. While a smooth title transfer is true in many situations, it is important for both buyers and sellers of real estate to understand potential title issues so they can avoid them if possible. 

What you should know about selling your home on your own

You have decided to sell your home, but you are not interested in working through third parties to find a new owner. The thought of selling your property by yourself is intriguing, but you are not sure if it is worth the work. At Essig Law Office, we have helped many families in Illinois to understand what needs to be done for them to successfully sell their home on their own, without the help of a realtor. 

Do you need an attorney when you sell your home?

Your house in Illinois is more than a home; it is an investment. While selling it can be emotional as you pack up the memories and prepare to move, it can also be an opportunity to maximize the return on the investment. According to the Illinois State Bar Association, a real estate attorney is an essential part of your team.

What to know when selling your home by yourself

If you are looking to sell your home in Illinois, you may have started to consider your options when it comes to preparing your home for the market. While you may enjoy the convenience of working with a realtor, you may also choose to sell your home by yourself. This option boasts many advantages including the fact that you do not have to sacrifice a portion of your equity earnings to share with your realtor for their work. At Essig Law Office, we are experienced in working with real estate transactions.

Protecting yourself as a landlord

There are many benefits to owning and managing rental property in Illinois, but it is not always easy to be a landlord. Many landlords deal with legal complications when tenants challenge the terms of a lease or make unfair or untrue accusations about alleged violations of their rights.

What should be in your real estate contract?

Creating a real estate contract for your Illinois property should be a carefully navigated process to avoid leaving out valuable components that could destroy your success in the industry. As with many property owners, you may be wondering what should be included in your contract to protect you, your assets and your success.
