Monday Real Estate Market Myth: No Money for an Attorney

Myth: A distressed homeowner has no one to discuss their selling options, if they cannot afford a real estate attorney.

FALSE: Before a homeowner agrees or decides to any mortgage change from a loan modification, short sale, deed in lieu, or any other real estate matter, they should talk to a real estate attorney.  Many homeowners do not know the hidden issues that have long terms effects like credit score, tax consequences, future liability, future buying power, and other unpredictable consequences.

A lot of people do not have the funds to pay for the expertise, but some attorney have flat 30-60 minute rates.  Every minute counts, so struggling homeowners should do their homework beforehand by collecting documentation for a meeting.  Also talking to a real estate agent helps homeowners know their options and discover what might work best for them.
