West Palm Beach For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

How Can A Real Estate Lawyer Help Me?

Are you thinking about selling your Florida home, townhome, condominium, or a vacant lot? Have you been approached about selling your property? Deciding to sell your Florida property on your own can be a smart financial decision which can save a Seller both time and money if the process is done right. 

Florida does not require that you have an agent or broker assist in your sales transaction. So with For Sale By Owner (“FSBO”) prounounced "fizzbo", the Seller has the ability to save on commissions that are traditionally paid to real estate agents and brokers, which in the grand scheme of things, keeps more money in your pocket at closing and increases your profit from the sale. 

However, in making the FSBO decision, it is recommended that you always hire competent and experienced legal counsel to make sure terms are properly negotiated, and once under contract, the transaction is done correctly, goes smoothly, and that your interests and rights are protected throughout the entire process and after your transaction closes.

The Law Office of Ryan S. Shipp, PLLC, and its team of West Palm Beach Real Estate Lawyers and support staff are here  provide Seller’s with cost-effective legal solutions throughout the entire FSBO process. Additionally, our in-house, attorney owned title company, Clear2Close Title & Escrow, LLC, will close your transaction which keeps the entire process under one roof.

What Is The Process?

Our FSBO Process (Residential)

  1. Seller finds a prospective Buyer to purchase their real property;
  2. Our office assists with negotiations between the Seller and Buyer, and when the terms are agreed upon by the parties, our office drafts the Real Estate Purchase and Sale Contract (“Contract”) on the Seller's behalf to present to the Buyer (the initial offer);
  3. Once the Contract is fully signed and initialed by both parties, our in-house, attorney owned title company, Clear2Close Title and Escrow, accepts the Buyer’s initial escrow deposit and begins to process the transaction by conducting a title and lien search on the real property along with contacting any Associations or Lenders involved; and
  4. Upon title being cleared, the closing will occur wherein title is transferred between the Seller and the Buyer, funds earned on the sale are disbursed to the Seller, and the Title Insurance Policy is issued to the Buyer.
