Blog Series: Buying or Selling Your Home

Spring is in the air (well, sort of).  Traditionally, the coming of spring brings to Wisconsin a number of things: the ability to occasionally go outside, renewed hope in our Milwaukee Brewers, and the start of the real estate season.  Traditionally, the spring and summer months are the busiest times of year for residential home transactions – and the times when our firm is contacted most frequently by prospective buyers and sellers.

Whether you are a first time homebuyer, or a seasoned veteran, the process of buying and selling a home – replete with deadlines, stacks of paperwork, and legal and technical jargon – may be intimidating.  Fear not!  We are here to help.  Over the next few weeks, this Blog will discuss the home buying or selling process, including the following concepts:

  • Listing Agreements,
  • Why and When to Hire an Attorney,
  • The Offer to Purchase,
  • Contingencies,
  • Title and Title Insurance, and
  • The Closing.

Along the way, we hope to not only inform you, our readers, of the basics, but also to discuss some common misconceptions and pitfalls, answer your questions, and show you ways that we can help.

We hope you will join us for this discussion.  If along the way you decide you would like to meet with one of our real estate attorneys, please contact us at (608) 837-7386.
