In most cases, buying real estate is pretty straightforward. However, in some cases such as when you are buying a foreclosure, using a special type of loan or taking on a dilapidated building, it isn't as easy and you need a real estate attorney. If you are new to the real estate world, it can be hard to know when an attorney is critical. Hi, my name is Molly, and over the years, I have bought multiple pieces of real estate -- some to resale, some to live in and some to rent out. I have to take a break from buying property so decided to keep my mind sharp writing a blog. I hope these posts help you.
