A. Lawyer

    Buying a home outright:

    100% of the purchase price.
    Your share of closing costs…completely negotiable with the seller.
    You don’t need a lawyer, unless you like paying money for nothing.

    The seller won’t give you any discount for cash because they aren’t they ones who would loan you money for a mortgage. They don’t care how you pay.

    Read “Home Buying for Dummies” or any self-help book on the subject.

    You the buyer pay for lawyer, title search, appraisal, survey and in some towns a Certificate of Occupancy, registration of the deed fees, prorated property taxes and homeowner’s insurance.

    Instead of asking here, you need your OWN real estate agent to advise you of what a fair offer would be and to look out for your interests. They would take the place of hiring a lawyer to do the negotiations and making sure your bases are covered. They would also know what fees or other things you would need to close on this house.

    Whatever you do, do NOT use the sellers agent as YOUR agent! They aren’t looking out for your interest, they are there to get the seller the best deal possible!

    Also, your own real estate agent will not cost you a dime! Might piss off the sellers agent though, since it sounds like they are hoping you don’t call in your own agent so they can keep the entire commission instead of having to split it with another agent!
