1. How many real estate closings do you handle per year on average? If the answer is less than 10, you may want to find someone with more experience. Many issues can arise in real estate transactions, so having an experienced attorney to help guide you through anything that may come up will save a lot of headaches and potential delays.
2. Do you have a paralegal or another attorney who can handle the deal if you are on vacation or incapacitated? Things are bound to come up during the 2 months you are under contract. Knowing your file will keep moving if someone is on vacation is key to closing on time.
There are many moving pieces in a real estate transaction. Make sure the people you hire to represent you can handle the work.
