Buying or selling a home is probably the most significant financial transaction that anyone undertakes in a lifetime. This process can be exciting, but without proper legal guidance, it also can be frustrating, overwhelming and more expensive than necessary.

Even if there are no obvious disagreements between the buyer and seller, both parties should enter into real-estate transactions with their own attorney, who can help steer them away from common pitfalls and make the transaction an enjoyable experience.
