Livonia, Northville, and Plymouth’s For Sale by Owner (FSBO) Attorney

For Sale by Owner (FSBO) Services

Southeast Michigan home owners who intend to buy or sell a home through a for sale by owner process rather than with a real estate agent are encouraged to contact a lawyer who has experience handling for sale by owner transactions.

Many owners of real estate property are choosing to sell their property independently instead of hiring a realtor. for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) transactions can save the seller a significant amount of money, as many real estate agents get a 5 to 6% cut of the selling price.

However, FSBO sellers can run into a number of legal and transactional problems in the process of selling their home. At Matt Devitt Law, PLC, we support for-sale-by-owner sellers at all stages of the process. To discuss how hiring an attorney can benefit you, contact our law office today.

Real Estate Lawyers - How We Can Help

Selling a home is a complex process with lots of paperwork and legal complexities.  If you have chosen to sell your home independently, we can provide you with as little or as much legal support as you need to complete your for-sale-by-owner transaction. At Matt Devitt Law, PLC our main concern is helping you complete the transaction appropriately and minimize any liabilities in the future through negotiation, litigation, or alternative dispute resolution.  The law firm guides clients through essential steps in the purchase or sale of a house, including the following:


  • Reviewing and discussing initial concerns and questions 

  • Outlining and explaining the law in “plain English”

  • Review of pre-approval letters, home inspections, property appraisals, and financing arrangements

  • Preparation of Seller disclosures and buy/sell agreements (purchase agreement)

  • Preparation for, and arrangement, of, settlement or closing

  • Attending closing to review all final documents

Matt Devitt Law, PLC is proud to offer fixed value based pricing.  With Fixed Fee Value Pricing the price is set before the work begins so that you know how much you can expect to pay ahead of time.
