Attorneys Selling Property makes sense!
Obligations to the client: Attorneys have a very clear duty to their clients.
The real estate attorney-client relationship provides for a high degree of privacy and confidentiality, which does not exist in a real estate agent-client relationship.
A real estate attorney will be representing you and only you in the buying or selling of a house, and an attorney is not incentivised by increasing or decreasing the purchase price.
Furthermore, while it is typically advisable to hire an agent for the marketing and advertising portion of the sale of your property, it is the real estate attorney who will typically get involved during the transactional phase.
So if your real estate attorney can attend to the marketing and advertising of your property as well, is there really any need for a separate estate agent?
Thus a real estate attorney will give you the best and most unbiased representation possible.
