Do I need an attorney to sell my property?

Thinking about listing your property on the market in Charlotte? The decision to move to a new home or sell your office is a big one. You shouldn't make this decision in the spur of the moment. It's something you need to research and prepare for so that you get fair value for the property and are not signing a sale agreement that has hidden language. So, do you need an attorney to sell your property?

Before you put a contract in place for the sale of your property, it's best to have an attorney review the listing agreement and then draft the terms of the sale. Your attorney will be able to suggest different clauses to include in the contract, such as right of first refusal.
