Buying a home is one of the largest investments you will ever make, which is why it is important to understand the papers that you are signing. Unfortunately, if you get into a mortgage without understanding all of the terms, you might end up spending a lot more every month than you originally anticipate. For these reasons, I have always used a real estate attorney to help me out. My lawyer explains all the terms, talks with me about what to expect, and attends the closings so that I am not there by myself. This blog is all about the benefits of working with a real estate attorney.
