Q: 

What does a real estate attorney do for a buyer? How important is it to find an excellent attorney?

A:  Contrary to a few answers provided below, you are not required to have an attorney in NY. We recently closed a home where the seller refused to use one. The same holds true for buyers. EXCEPT- in NYC, realtors have likely never filled in the blanks on a contract (many may never have seen a contract) and most do not represent buyers. You are in a bad situation in NYC without a lawyer, as it''s likely you as a buyer, double teamed with two agents that represent the seller. Finding an excellent attorney is likely the same as locating an excellent real estate person- word of mouth is a valuable commodity. Good luck! ...

Q: 

Do I need good credit to be a real estate Agent? What do I really need to know about getting into real estate?

A:  real estate is either the easiest way to make very little money or the hardest way to make a lot of money. It''s all about time and smart effort. I''d say make up your mind. Do you want to be a lawyer or a real estate broker? An old adage goes like this: ''Did you hear about the lawyer who got his real estate license? Now he can screw up his own deals!'' Stick with the books. By the time you can make regular income in real estate sales, you''ll be through law school and can make decent money doing that. If you are bored...

Q: 

Is it possible to be both a cop and a real estate agent at the same time?

A:  Sounds too complicated to me. As a cop, you will be working long hours that are tough to get out of. As a real estate agent, even part time, you need to be flexible to work with your clients. If your client is only available at a certain time of day, which is the same time of day you are scheduled to work, you won''t be able to get out of work at a moment''s notice and they will look for a new agent. Also, as a buyer''s agent you will have to disclose everything you know about the property. As a cop, you would know TOO much, unless you do real estate in a different city than the one you...

Q: 

Any expert real estate investors out there, that are willing to mentor me to be successful as a real estate investor?

A:  I am not sure of the best real estate investor in your area, so you will have to research a little through networking with the top local real estate agents. I do know from my past job of being a real estate agent myself, that the more you know the better. Foristance, the rate of appreciation in the area, how dense the local housing are is, ow desirable of an area is it for rentals, (mainly you want to feel confident that these purchases are safe and will produce a steady stream of income). I would start at the Georgia real estate Investors website. Best of luck!...

Q: 

looking for contract real estate attorney

A:  Put another way, you want a real estate attorney with both litigation and transactional experience. This isn't a job posting board, and we don't do referrals (even if they happen to know someone in OK City). We also don't contact folks off-board. Try your local city-county-state bar associations, and perhaps the "find a lawyer" feature here....

Q: 

Can a Bank Confiscate a real estate Agent's Commission?

A:  Who owns the house your husband sold? What is his business relationship with the entity that owns the house? Is your husband a broker or an agent under a broker? btw: is he a realtor or just a real estate agent. If he is a realtor, then the proper use is capitalized. If he is not, then he cannot legally call himself a realtor To respond to the question about who owns the house: The seller/owner is the home builder my husband works for. (And the reason the bank is getting involved is because the builder/seller/owner has gotten behind on his construction loan payments.) To clarify, husband is not on salary. He earns his living on commission...

Q: 

Is it illegal for a real estate broker to disclose buyers of nearby subsidize housing projects?

A:  HUD doesn''t have any jurisdiction over the activity of real estate agents. It is public knowledge if there are low income housing projects in your neighborhood. All you have to do is drive around and find them. That information would probably not be disclosed unless a prospective home buyer were to inquire of his agent specifically about them. HUD does not control what real estate agents practices are. They are controlled by the State Board of realtors. You have to look that up in your state. So it is not illegal to either disclose or not disclose that information....

Q: 

Is a real estate lawyer Required for purchase?

A:  The title company/escrow folks are normally attorneys picked by the lender. I can't imagine it ever being *required* (presumably you mean by law) that a buyer use an attorney, but plenty of states will only allow an attorney to handle a real estate closing. Unless you're buying all cash and won't need a mortgage, your lender will be designating its choice of settlement attorney. There's plenty of info online as it relates to using an attorney when you buy or sell a property. http://realestate.find
