Realtors vs. Real Estate Attorneys

The laws on commercial real estate vary from state to state. Many states require the use of a real estate attorney any time someone is purchasing or selling commercial real estate. Florida does not place such a requirement on these transactions. Purchasers and sellers of commercial real estate are also not required to use a realtor. Still, a realtor can help you negotiate with sellers or buyers and draft a purchase agreement. A realtor will also have connections with reputable mortgage loan brokers, inspectors, and other individuals and companies that can be helpful with your real estate matter.

While realtors can be very helpful, they are not the only professional you should work with during a commercial real estate transaction. Realtors cannot answer legal questions or address legal concerns when they arise. While they are well-versed in areas such as contracting and negotiating, they do not have the proper judgment to handle legal issues. It is for this reason that you should work with a realtor and a commercial real estate attorney.

Realtors also have a vested interest in any property they assist people with buying or selling. While realtors will not allow their own interests to negatively affect their clients, there are times when their opinions may be clouded. An attorney, on the other hand, does not have any stake in a commercial real estate transaction and so, they will solely work in your best interests.
