How much does this all cost?
Typically, legal fees are higher
when you buy than sell because
the role of the buyer’s lawyer
is more extensive. Most fees
range from $650 to $800 for an
average home buyer. A seller can expect around $200 in legal fees for a normal tranaction.
Some lawyers charge a flat fee
for specific services and others
bill by the hour. If you are
paying by the hour, make sure
you understand what the final
cost is likely to be and insist
on a regular accounting for
charges. Usually, a lawyer can
easily estimate costs related to
a real estate transaction and
his or her fees will only go
higher if something goes wrong.
Remember, even if your deal does
not close, you’ll still owe your
lawyer for his or her time.
