If the buyer and seller have found each other, you do not need a realtor. Save your money and work with a lawyer instead!!! These are called For Sale by Owner transactions or FSBOs. If you need help marketing your property, showing your property to prospective buyers, or finding a property to buy then you should work with a realtor.

For example, when landlord sells to tenants, when owner sells to a family member, friend or neighbor, when a seller locates a qualified buyer, these are the times that you should hire Levini law to help with your transaction.

*If the transaction is extremely complicated or takes considerably longer than a normal transaction, the price for legal services could increase by the hourly rate ($400/hour). This occurs when there are other legal problems that need to be solved before the house can be sold.
