Real estate contract preparation is the key to a smooth transaction
Over the years, buying real estate has become an increasingly complicated proposition. Single page documents have become multi-page documents. Where there was once a need for a few signatures, there is now the need for literally dozens of signatures and initials for every type of document throughout the process. And handshakes have been replaced by stacks of legal documents that must be reviewed before anyone can place a signature on them to move a deal forward.
Needless to say, one small slip up can hold up or even kill a deal. That's why top-notch real estate contract preparation is the key to a smooth transaction. And while many people think they can go it alone when it comes to executing, reviewing, changing and signing documents, is that really the type of chance you want to take with perhaps the biggest transaction of your life?
You need an experienced contract professional in your corner. You need someone like John Hixson who has been helping families and business people in the greater Arlington area with their real estate contract needs for many years.

While most people think of real estate transactions as the process of buying or selling a home, the fact is that there are many kinds of real estate transactions that an attorney can help you with. In addition, attorneys can also help you after the fact with contract disputes, arising from all kinds of situations:
- Purchase, lease, finance, foreclosure, and contract transactions
- Easements, encroachments, construction and title issues
- Landlord, tenant, eviction and HOA disputes
- Seller and broker misrepresentation/breach of contract issues
- Insurance claims related to fires, flooding, landslides and other natural disasters
