Finding a Real Estate Attorney

Finding a good real estate attorney can actually be hard work. Yes you can't swing a dead cat without hitting an attorney that will do a residential closing, but you will need something better than that as an investor.

Here are some questions you should ask the prospective attorney:

- What percentage of your business is real estate related?
- How long have you been in business?
- How many investment properties do you own/manage?
- Can you assist me in closing properties using other methods such as lease/options, seller financing, land trusts, and subject-to?

As always the best way to find someone is via referrals and/or the local REIA group. If you invest in other areas (non-local) here is a site I used that (so far) has produced a pre-screened list of decent attorneys - LegalMatch.

Remember, you still have to ask the right questions:
