First-Time Home Buyers

Becoming first-time home buyers are something many people hope to one day achieve, and doing so isn’t easy. Once you feel prepared to buy your first home, you might feel like you’ve entered a whirlwind of challenges. Having a home to call your own is an amazing feeling, but, as many will tell you, buying real estate is often difficult. You might think you’re all set with only a real estate agent you can trust, but a real estate agent can’t help you through all the legal complexities of buying a home. To make your first real estate transaction run smoothly, you need a real estate attorney for first-time buyers on your side.

No one expects you to know everything that goes into the home-buying process when it’s your first time. At Tressler & Associates, our real estate attorneys know all of the work that must be done and the challenges that can occur. We’ll be there for you so that you’ll be on your way to being a homeowner in no time.

Why Have a Real Estate Attorney When Buying Your First Home?

You likely know many home buyers who have bought their home without the assistance of a real estate attorney, so you might think you don’t need one, either. However, buying a home is stressful, and with such a large financial investment at stake, you can never be too careful. A real estate attorney can guide you through any complications to make this easier for you. Here are a few great reasons to have a real estate attorney help you with buying your first home.


During the process of buying your first home, you might be surprised by how much negotiating may be involved. The terms and conditions of your transaction may not initially be what you had hoped for and you may not feel able to effectively negotiate for something that suits you better. With a real estate attorney, you have someone highly skilled at negotiations advocating for you. Having someone negotiate on your behalf for better terms and conditions can help prevent some of the stress that often comes with buying a home.


It’s important to be careful whenever you sign a contract, especially when it comes to real estate transactions. However, this is often easier said than done. Considering the large amount of paperwork that goes into buying a home and the complicated language they tend to have, it can be easy to overlook or misunderstand something important. The last thing you want to happen is signing a legally binding contract you’ll regret one day. A real estate lawyer will look over all of your documents carefully to ensure nothing goes unnoticed, so you can sign confidently.

Easements and Title Issues

After looking forward to buying a home for years, you likely assume that once you buy your house, you’re the rightful owner. In many cases, this is true, but not always. Title issues do occur that can prevent you from owning your home, but a real estate lawyer can catch these in time to avoid any complications. Additionally, a real estate attorney can help determine if the property has any easements that could allow others to use your property. For new homebuyers, real estate attorneys can provide peace of mind, which is extremely important.


The help that a real estate attorney can provide to first-time homebuyers while their home is in escrow can’t be underestimated. When you’re in the process of buying your home, an escrow account will be created to protect your good faith deposit to buy the property. Escrow can be complicated, and as a first-time buyer, you’ll likely have many questions. By having a real estate attorney, you know you’ll have someone who can guide you through this process and answer your questions.
