Selling a home for-sale-by-owner, FSBO, can give control over the process to the seller in that they are responsible for marketing and showing their property. When they get matched with a potential buyer, this can save thousands as the broker commission is eliminated. Selling a home is a legal transaction that should be handled by a skilled attorney. Lean on my residential sales experience in drafting the various contracts to get the parties to closing.
Homeowners or taxing authorities can appeal the assessed value of your home throughout the year. In Allegheny County, the sale of a residence is often a triggering event for an assessment appeal. Presenting evidence at the hearing requires a skilled approach, one which I first learned as a Hearing Officer for the Board of Property Assessments
and Appeals and continue to refine throughout
my many years in practice.
